Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

"Another problem I'm having with Linux is that I can't seem to find my Linux Genuine Advantage Validation Key!"

Maybe Novell and Xandros will have that "feature" in future versions of their software.

I stepped into that. I was trying to be lighthearted, but regrettably you may be right. I've read the arguments about Novell, both pro and con, I feel it was a bad move by Novell and also a bad move by Xandros. Linux has been doing fine without MS as the author of the article discovered. There are reasons why average users like me stay with Linux. It's more user friendly than MS, and I'm not an expert on buisness, but I think Novell and Xandros will not prosper in the long run.
