Editorial The IT sector today is a complete mess. The end-users rarely understand this, but most insiders reach a point when they realize that things should be different. The problems are numerous but they all reduce to a basic principle. IT and consumer electronics companies are interested more about money than helping people solve their problems. Of course companies need to make a profit and nobody denies that. They should however make money by helping people and not by creating more problems for them.

I couldn't agree more on this: "IT and consumer electronics companies are interested more about money than helping people solve their problems"

I just read today about the Island of Man administration converting themselves from novell/unix/sun to win server 2k3, as a complaint from the side of the administration: "I believe open source solutions are all point solutions. It is really about technology for technology's sake [...] He says, in slightly guarded tones, that Linux people tend to be more technology, than business focused."

Gee, whatever.
