Dell cuddles Canonical for big Ubuntu fluffer love

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell is working with Canonical to help 
| customers float Ubuntu-powered open-source 
| clouds while also cozying up to developers.


The Last Straw

,----[ Quote ]
| When I adopted GNU/Linux the impetus to 
| change was the persistent failure of that 
| other OS to run through a single 45 minute 
| period of class time without fail. Perhaps 
| the latest vulnerability in that other OS 
| will be the impetus for many more to 
| migrate. This one is not a bug but a 
| feature of that other OS to permit working 
| with foreign character-sets. That other OS 
| welcomes executable files to manipulate 
| foreign characters and in the process 
| allows the system to be owned by aliens. 
| Malware is out in the wild exploiting this 
| feature of that other OS.



Dell reiterates that Linux is safer than Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems however they have not retracted
| similar statements from the "Linux 101"
| video on the same Ubuntu page. In the
| video, a speaker mentions the following
| comments about Ubuntu:
| "It's safe and secure. Over 95 percent of
| viruses, spyware and other types of
| malware are designed and targeted to
| attack Microsoft Windows. So, by
| definition, if you're not running
| Microsoft Windows and if you're running
| Linux, you just don't have to worry about
| malware and viruses and spyware."
| "There's a lot of reasons consumers like
| Linux. No. 1: it's a powerful operating
| system. It can do lots of things very
| fast."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
