Excellent point. A colleague of mine openly admitted that he wants to
migrate to Linux. He probably feels worried that nobody would hold his
hand, metaphorically speaking, throughout the process. When I tell him that
he ought to use Firefox rather Internet Explorer, he protests. He then
reveals that he hate Linux deep inside.

It's very much like a stubborn dog that approaches you with a freesbee in
his mouth, actually wanting you to have it, but still biting it hard,
groaning and barking.

Don't worry... I give them no more than a few years. Nokia might soon unveil
their Linux-based platform for tablets, mobile phones, and PDA's. I'll talk
about it more later today.
