Scott Morris has replied to the statement made by Microsoft's Bill Hilf that Linux poses no threat to Windows on the desktop. "I'm telling you, SLED 10 will be the first Linux platform ever that can truly address all of the issues to be considered when looking for a desktop platform. Gone are the days where the knee-jerk response is 'OK, so how much do I need to fork over to you, Mr Gates?' Only the old-school has-beens are still thinking this way. Join the new IT movement. The one where everyone sees Microsoft's software for the trash that it is, and sees Linux for the value that it adds to the industry. At very least join us in the real world and think for yourself."
