As a sort of parallel news item, it's interesting to note, that in the UK
there is increasing dissatisfaction with M$ among IT pros. In a Quocirca
online questionnaire last year, 8,000 IT professionals’ responded & it was
noted that there was *deep* unease with M$’s Windows. Linux is gaining
ground here, at Windows’ expense.
As the article says: "The days are over when Microsoft could rely on being
the only software platform in town"
WARNING! Do not drive your
vehicle after using Windows.
Frustration may be taken out
on other road users.
