Linux "You've built a linux desktop. You've mounted the learning curve to configure the hardware (or paid someone else to do so) and you are able to do your own work on the machine. You've discovered that if you can point and click you can run a modern linux OS on your desktop. But how is it you will ever relate to the rest of the world? What do you do with the MS attachments people send you? How do you enjoy the music distributed in formats for a Windows World?"

ODF is the next pdf

Considering that many email servers strip doc files from email due to viruses, sending them out is a really bad idea. Not to mention MS's bad habit of changing the format with each version of Office. Docs just need to be gone. pdf's are so much better and the new odf is going to become standard even on windows i think. Kind of like mp3 is standard, even though better codecs have come out.
