In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

Actually a lot of the best open source software is for Windows or can be run on Windows quite easily.

There is a lot of good software for Windows that can be bought that doesn't include malware or any other bollox.

It frequently overlooked and everything that seems to be a Linux advocate thinks it is still the late 90s.

f--king please.

Stop telling lies for Linux.
