Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "All too often the desktop operating system market is looked upon as some sort of epic struggle between Microsoft and Linux. This 'versus' mentality is fun to perpetuate, it is not helping anyone in the long run. Since it is clear that each party is going to be around for a long time, what is needed a bit of mannerly coexistence. While the name calling may persist, it is more important that efforts are made to enable the two operating systems to work together more efficiently than they do now."

Don't need M$

I live a very productive and happy live without using any products from MicroSoft.

I installed Linux on my machines and invested time to learn how to use them and I am very happy I did.

The point of this rant is, not everyone cares either way what happens to MS.

So not everyone needs to get along with some company they don't care about.

Microsoft is a company that provides no software that interests me enough to spend tons of money, especially when I can get simular software for free.

To me, MS is just another software company that I'm not intersted in.

I get what I need from the open source community, so no thank you MS, keep on moving. :-)
