[News] GNU/Linux is Winning, So Microsoft Brings Out the Shills

Hash: SHA1

Migrating to Desktop Linux: What is the Big Deal? Answer: Nothing.

,----[ Quote ]
| The anti-Linux FUD has been flying thick and fast lately. It's not even 
| interesting fresh FUD, but tired, worn-out old FUD. If you believe the 
| headlines and all the masses of verbiage being emitted by Redmond's 
| tame "tech" "reporter" battalions Linux desktop market share has dropped 
| since 2001; that not having Photoshop, AutoCad, and other specialty, 
| expensive high-end applications are deal-breakers even for people who never 
| use them; and that users are getting stupider and more fearful, and therefore 
| must be protected from frightening things like command-lines, skills, and 
| knowledge.        
| Now you know it's hogwash, and I know it's hogwash, and the silly people 
| emitting all this nonsense have never even touched a Linux computer, except 
| to poke it with a stick. Rather than wasting time countering this tired, 
| moldy old baloney let's move on to my Common-Sense Easy-Peasy Guide to 
| Adopting Linux.     



Ballmer Still Searching for an Answer to Google

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."


Microsoft and Its Three Biggest Threats

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft sees Linux as a much more significant competitor, even though its
| share of the desktop OS market is small. Here's why: "I think the dynamic
| with Linux is changing somewhat," Ballmer said at the meeting. "I assume
| we're going to see Android-based, Linux-based laptops, in addition to phones.
| We'll see Google more as a competitor in the desktop operating system
| business than we ever have before."


Microsoft CEO Scoffs at Mac Share Gains

,----[ Quote ]
| Steve has a surprising view of the computing universe to put Linux before
| Apple. Most certainly, Linux's larger server share puts it overall ahead of
| Mac OS. But Steve wasn't talking about server here, but Windows client. So
| why rank Apple behind Linux?
