Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

As I see it, Linux is getting stronger all the time.

Articles such as this bother me because they the imply that Linux can only succeed if Mocrosoft fails or makes mistakes.

Whatever happened to the notion of Linux succeeding on it's own merit? Somewhere, way back in time, wasn't that the dream?

So....

Let's stop expending energy by tearing Microsoft apart and use it to build that better mouse trap.
