The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
Comment of the Day - January 3, 2006 -
With Windows Vista coming out, all the analysts agree that the hardest
thing for Microsoft to do will be to convince people to shell out the
money for a new operating system. Especially considering such a large
portion of their target market doesn't know or care what version of
Windows it is running, nor would they know how to install a new
version. Lucky for Microsoft, they can keep making license money from
all the people who buy new computers. As the New York Times reported a
few months ago, when a computer becomes overwhelmed with viruses and
spyware, many users are likely just to toss it and spend the $400 on a
new computer (Microsoft tax included)
So keeping Windows insecure, causes it to become virus and spyware
ridden, which causes idiots to toss out their computer, which means
they have to buy a new one, which means Microsoft makes more money.
IT'S (evil) GENIUS!!!
