Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

Anytime MS comes out with a new OS, MS "Admins" demand that the business switch to the more "updated" Windows, else the business can't recieve updates and "fixes".

I'm assuming you are running an old, old distro like RedHat 7.0 and never upgrade ...

All joking aside, upgrading from one version of Windows to a new version to keep current on a reasonable business cycle (which most businesses do) is not comparable like the cult members advocating the dumping of Novell/SLED for another distro because of their hatred of Microsoft.

Ask yourself why MS is hated. Try to understand. Once you've accomplished that, come back and post again. But think first, then post. Thank you.

Typical MS cult lifetime card carrying member, "it's not a cult", "I'm not a member", "I could quit any time", "I'm in control...", heard it all before, none of them will ever recognize it in themselves, just too close to the problem.

Actually, RH 7.3 to be fair.

And I just cooked Fedora Core 6.0

I also have Debian and Ubuntu, but I prefer Debian to all these just because I can change it any way that I like it. =)

Oh... and Winderz XP SP2.

And I might get Vista. Then again - maybe not. I don't know yet. I think that I might let XP SP2 just die EOL and then I'll get a PS3 for games.

Nothing is new under the sun.

Linux is the airplane. Windows is the Rail Road.

If Linux is an airplane, its a home built experimental model ... and there are hundreds of models each with its own cult of devotees.
