why defend ? just destroy M$
well I think that this article was great but !!!!!! I also
disagree wif some things said in it. I am a fairly new linux
user (about 1/2year) but from all that I have seen it is simply the best OS. So I say that to have M$ come and f***
it up would be the bigest mistake all the existing user base could do. The biggest reason why linux is better than
Windows is simple, nobody has anything to lose but their
reputation! This is why final releases of Linux programs tend to be fantastic! And even some beta's in linux are better than final releases of commercial programs for Windows. I know this might be a hyperbelee but the simple fact remains that windows has a realy bad rep.
anyway before i get of the subject.
I think the best way to destroy M$'s chances to dominate the *nix market is but simply beating them to it. I mean
beating them to the creation of that what they are good in!
ie. Easy learnabilety, easy installing, compatebilety !!! and getting rid of ununified relases like have u ever tryed to install Koffice? then u'll understand !!!
We also need to get some sort of support from hardware manufacturers!!! & bring out a great SDK for easy linux power exploits!!! ie. like directX sdk etc. I think we sould make a linux gorilla squad against windows like M$ is
doing wif linux !!!!
