I don't understand all this propaganda.

How does this further IT?

UNIX people seem to hate the company that made the PC available, popularized it, took it to other countries around the world, made it user friendly, gave people an opportunity to make a living, simplified programming and made it possible for Linux to exist by giving Intel a market.

Personally, I think Linux is OK and I'm using Suse 10, but you people are so hyper-sensitive or obsessive compulsive hanging on every word written in some obscure document for OEM's.

Do you really think Intel will abandon Microsoft? Not ever.

If they're smart, they'll know who buttered their bread.



Intel has done dumb things in the past and Microsoft always forgives them.

Also, the business world represents a much bigger user base than governments. They won't give up in Microsoft. They never have.

I write all my code on my XP Pro workstation and load it up to this LAMP + tomcat that my client has. What does he care if I use Linux to write code or not?

I'm glad you have something to obsess about. What would you do with all your free time anyway?

PS - I don't mean to be rude, but you have to admit something's wrong with this picture in the Linux part of the open source world.
