Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

"A great description of Linux which has all those features.


Who cares? Linux as a desktop OS was irrelevant in the 1990's, is irrelevant now, and will be irrelevant 10 years from now.
"

I'm sure the developer of the distro we selected doesn't think so, 200k machines migrated from Windows at $50 each and on our end no complaints from any of the users. So drink the kool-aid fanbois and continue to dream as more of the enterprise industries along with most Governments switch.
