i see that most of you are hating ms, but ms provides me my meals. so why crying at someone who ports software. i find it very good, that i can use my ooo and ff on windows and linux the same time. they both looking mostly same at userlevel and i am not concerned to learn new beheaviour for using linux. thats great. no i'm not paying money for running oss on windows. thats bad idea and its against the idea of oss.

why crying at all windows users? most users cannot use other os'es since linux is more complex and not so easy to use. afterall i haven't much seen a new pc which is delivered with linux preinstalled. some hardwarevenders are building pc with linux on it. and i found it great, but please do continue work on multiplatform in linux, macox, beos, skyos, windows and all other os'es.

i think this article is bloat and "hateware"... i didn't like this. most people are hating windows, but they don't see the easy of use. sure there are securityholes and bugs, but mostly it runs smooth on hardware i own and my customers own.

don't look only black and white, it's a world full of colors.
