Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

Doesn't he realize most elementary school students are smarter than us adults. They seem to get any electronic/digital gizmo to work in mere minutes.... that and they don't bicker about how great their OS is.

With regards to Linux/MacOS gaining market share.... yeah, definitely.... but people who buy new computers will use whatever OS it comes with, so Microsoft's position won't change, unless OEM's start giving a Linux option with their products (and hopefully removing the Windows logo from the keyboards at the same time). We'll have to wait and see, really.

Which side am I on? .... well, let's just say I own every video-game console on the market except for the XBox.
