[News] Avoiding Vista and Vista 7 to Move to GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Saving Linux cash on Vista clunkers

| I wish there was an easy-to-use Windows-to-Linux desktop migration program, 
| but the best of that lot, Versora Progression Desktop, has not been available 
| since 2007, when Versora was bought out by Kaseya, an IT Managed Services 
| Automation firm. While Kaseya promised that Versora's functionality would 
| still be available, I couldn't find it any of Kaseya's currently shipping 
| products â and, in any case, Kaseya's customers are businesses, not 
| individual desktop Linux or Windows users. If there are any programmers out 
| there who want an idea that could make a profitable little product, I think 
| you could do well with a Windows to Linux migration tool.

Linux vs Windows 7

| And this is where Linux can make a big difference. There's nothing in Windows
| 7 that Linux can't do, and in most cases, do it better. Our machines are
| quicker and more efficient. Our desktops are more innovative and less static.
| Our apps are more powerful, cheaper and less partisan, and Linux security has
| never been better. But best of all, we have complete control over the future
| of Linux, and it's success or failure at the hands of Windows 7 is in our
| hands.


Seven things Windows 7 can learn from Linux

| 1. More frequent release cycles. As Iâve already explained, Microsoftâs worst
| enemy has been its very long release cycles. Linux distributors, on the other
| hand, have the opposite problem â too frequent release cycles. But what would
| a consumer be more interested in, an operating system thatâs eight years old
| (Windows XP) or one thatâs updated every year or even six months? Fresh
| product releases means fresh marketing and Microsoft knows this. From Windows
| 7 on itâs bye, bye many-year release cycles and hello two year cycles at the
| most.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
