Subject: The Threat of a Linux Generation
a blase overview from a large media outlet, but i'm just happy that this
sentiment is gaining such an audience. and i like how they equate people who can
actually understand linux to "a threat." he he he...
the following made me raff:
"Linux now accounts for 27 percent of server software worldwide, compared to
Microsofts 42 percent share, says research firm IDC."
~are these numbers reversed?? who paid for this survey?
"Linux hackers from Germany and elsewhere are working on a Windows-like
graphical interface for Linux PCs called KDE (for K Desktop Environment). They
expect to release it this spring - free of charge."
~not like KDE has been out for 4+ years or anything...
"In the end, Microsoft persuaded the Parliament to continue using Windows NE for
5,000 new PCs."
~yeah, that "NE" -- its *powerful* stuff!
fact checking... what is fact checking?
