You know, modding me down when you don't like the facts I present is like a child sticking his fingers in his ears and yelling to drown out unpleasant facts.

Munich is a great example of Linux squandering millions.

Linux market share approaches zero on the desktop.

Linux growth in servers approaches zero.

Microsoft isn't a monopoly.

Your comments get modded down because they are off-topic, like most flamebaiting usually.

Installing Linux saves money.

Linux market share on the desktop is around 2.5% and growing.

Linux growth on server is still in the double digits.

Microsoft, for all practical purposes, has a virtual monopoly on Office suites and desktop OSes.

Will you just copy/paste your own message as a response, as you so pathetically did for your previous off-topic message that was buried? Please do, and I'll mod it down again.
