Morphos A new product arises from Genesi: The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements. Both IBM and Motorola feature the new product in their pages.

@Tyrone Miles
Put the bong down, son.

Gosh why are all defender of the "faith"-type blind and so full of ignorance? Next thing they'll talk about the BSOD and how they keep getting it 10 times per day at work. *sigh*

Linux fanatics still don't get it. They reply the APT-GET prepackaged answer to every question just to look smart. Then you tell them that you're using Red Hat because you can't install Debian. Or have access to Lindows/Xandros. APT-GET this, APT-GET that. Like an old vinyl that skips.

Linux worms and viruses: Linux.Slapper.Worm, Ramen Linux worm, 1i0n worm, Adore worm and the Sadmind/IIS worm. The self-righteous fanatics never acknowledge that there are more viruses for Windows because most computer are running Windows. More than 90% of computers are running Windows. Guess to which OS worms are more likely to cause problems to? They also never mention that it's easier to make worms for Linux bacause it's open source. Half of the work is already done for Viris makers. ;)

Mac basher lies: no cross compatibility. Office X worked great for me! Open standards, OH NO! First they complain that it's not based on standards then it's they're copying everything. Make up your minds people. Also note that if it wasn't for Mac, you would not be using the mouses and GUIs. It would have died with Xerox a long time ago. I remember when Mac bashers were making fun of Mac users for needing a GUI and a mouse. Right now a lot the themes at KDE-LOOK.org are based on Aqua. I wonder why ;)

Then it's "the you can't upgrade it" reason. Macs have the same video card (minus Firmware), same USB peripherals(Intel tech that was made popular by Apple), same printers, etc...

Then it's the you must pay argument. Apple has never disappointed me yet! Jaguar was worth it and so was Panther. Maybe if we payed for Linux, it wouldn't be so hard to install and more advanced for the average power user. ;)

Btw go to www.ecomstation.com for the new OS/2 client.

IBM has an history of sabotaging it's departments. OS/2 is just another casualty. If they didn't have as many clients, they'd have killed the midrange computers(AS/400) long ago. IIRC they tried 3 times to fold that dept. lol

So please use your brain cells next time you spew your drivel. Gnome is in between Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. A little more advanced than 3.1 but less polished than 95.
