Microsoft Microsoft surprised many of the attendees at its annual worldwide partner show here this weekend by allowing a third party to present a "hands-on lab" that allowed attendees to play with a range of Linux desktop software. Is Microsoft toning down on its anti-Linux campaign?

all i was saying is, a Linux fanboy should feel proud when Linux is preferred over Windows when sold at the same price. The day that happens, i can bet Windows will reduce to <50% share but i don't see it happening because Windows has certainly much higher quality bar in terms of usability over Linux. Linux is still a geek toy.

A Linux fanboy should ignore you. It is in your character to protest against any proof with your "can't hear you, can't hear you, but linux sux" attitude

The day it will happen' it will be just a day and nothing else. It is the same as when digital clock changes numbers. Nothing special when it shows 00:00

Yes, linux is still a geek toy. And many of us love it for the same reason. But as long as it works better than Windows for my friends (at least they don't call me anymore with their problems) I think it is desktop ready and *I and my surrounding* is what I care about.

You know you could cool off a little bit. Frustration is bad for nerves:)

p.s. Here is my answer to your next response "CAN'T HEAR YOU" (which I really can't because I have to read pages, damn computer still isn't desktop ready to read them for me), but in reality here is 0AM and I'll be off to last beer and then sleep. So reading is OFF from now on.
