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.

LOL! And I assume you never plan to send documents to anyone that is not using a Mac? Apple works is not very useable. Not even close to Open Office. And Star Office kills it dead.

And why is their business model bad. Because less support for the Mac means that if it becomes a drag on their other businesses guess where the Mac will wind up? Not part of Apple anymore. Got to answer to those share holders you know. And then what, remember Aqua is proprietary and if Apple stops making the Mac, or at lease throws it on the side burner then all the Mac users are stuck with nothing. Unlike with Linux, take Red Hat for example their OS is open source, when they stopped supporting it they gave it to the Fedora project and it's looking and feeling better now then when Red Hat had it.

I mean I am not saying Windows and Mac don't have their place and are not good at all. Like I said I support Windows 2000/XP systems for a living along with Linux and Unix. But what I am trying to say is that Linux in the same breath is not as bad as people make it out to be and most of the problems people have with Linux are with older versions or with versions not designed for novice users.

But Marcus you are right we are WAY off subject. Sorry. :-( That is enough from me.
