[News] More Calls for People to Abandon Windows for More Modern GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Do the Linux Jig!

| And I’m just damn tired of Windows already.
| Doesn’t that ever happen to you? Not particularly with your operating system 
| because you know, that’s geeky as all Hell. But say you always bought from 
| the same brand of shoes. They were great, and did everything you asked them 
| to do for you. But after so many years, damn! Don’t you wanna try something 
| new? See what’s out there?    
| I’ve been fighting with the want to use Ubuntu for like three years now. Not 
| just use Ubuntu, but make it my primary OS of choice. For the last few years 
| I’ve fiddled with it, put it on a separate partition, or a virtual machine.  


Should You Switch to Linux in Your Law Firm?

| These are just a few of the reasons why your law firm may want to make the 
| switch to Linux. There are wide variety of distributions to choose from, and 
| best of all, they’re FREE! If you don’t feel like diving right in without any 
| prior experience, Ubuntu can be downloaded and installed through WUBI. The 
| Windows-based Ubuntu Installer (Wubi) allows you to install and uninstall 
| Ubuntu from within Microsoft Windows. It lets a Microsoft Windows user try 
| Ubuntu without risking any data loss due to disk formatting or partitioning.      


The Desktop Is Dead. So Is The Server!

,----[ Quote ]
| When anyone mentions blade servers and Big Blue in the same paragraph, it's 
| fair to assume that only big enterprises need to pay attention. Dell, 
| however, hopes its new "SMB-in-a-box" lineup, which bundles hardware with 
| pre-configured open-source software packages, will prove an attractive 
| proposition for smaller firms concerned about keeping IT costs to a minimum.    



French Lawmakers Hope to Inspire Linux Revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| If the French National Assembly gets its way, the open-source Linux operating
| system will take over the governments of Europe, seizing on a weak economy to
| displace Windows.
| About 18 months ago, the Assembly shifted from running Windows on the 1,100
| computers of its members and their assistants to running a version of Linux
| called Ubuntu. (I profiled the rise of Ubuntu in a recent article.) According
| to Rudy Salles, vice president of the assembly, the decision to abandon
| Microsoft’s Windows software was both an economic and political gesture.
| The French Parliament should save about 500,000 euros over the next five
| years, thanks to the low price of Ubuntu –- free –- and have lower management
| costs. Linux tends to have fewer security issues than Windows, for example.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
