Linux ServerWatch writes about the slow but sure death of UNIX by the onslaught of Linux and customers moving from older proprietary UNIX systems to commercially supported open source enterprise Linux distributions. "Linux does have one killer feature that is driving the switch: lower cost. Many companies are discovering Linux to be extremely attractive from a cost perspective. Take the experience of Sabre, a travel company that replaced Solaris with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on x86 machines, resulting in lowering costs 90 percent (with a three-fold speed gain to boot). These potential cost savings, which include hardware maintenance costs savings, are not to sniffed at."

What, exactly is it that you disagree with regarding Ray Noorda?

None of the rest of your post is worth responding too. My only question there is how you can stand to be so very hateful. Hateful thoughts drain the life out of me. I find it far more pleasant to avoid them. You have done a great deal to damage the reputation of the Linux community here on OSNews through the expression of your hatred of BSD. Possibly more than anyone else I can think of. I have tried to reach you in the past, through public and private communications, through reason. I've exhausted all the reasonable strategies. So perhaps it is time to resort to an *unreasonable* one:

You can stick your head up your ass, Moulinneuf. Or, actually, I think you already have.

"Caldera, a Linux company for whom I used to have some respect, but associated with the very shady "Canopy Group"

" We should tarnish names like Darl McBride, Chris Sontag, and Canopy Group. Canopy Group was pulling the strings. And Darl was their front-man. And a very willing one in my view."

False on both account ...


I cannot help but feel that you have something significant that you are trying to say here. But perhaps you should be a little more explicit. Are you condemning me for having had some respect for Ransom Love? The "Old Caldera"? My original post was about a very different company. I'm not sure I really care to argue over Caldera. They were never my *favorite* Linux company. Just one that I had some respect for a long time ago.

I *think* we're still kind of on topic here. And apologize to those who may reasonably disagree.

Moulineuf is so ridicules he is a self parody. Awhile back I used to try and enumerate all the OSNews terms of use that he was violating in his posts (personal attacks, inflammatory language, etc) but he just doesn't get it.

The OSNews terms could just be a link to Moulineuf's postings with the instructions "What not to do and how to not behave".

"Moulineuf is so ridicules he is a self parody"

Real man have no trouble ridiculizing themself , not that I am ridicule here , because you never *laugh* at my ridicule post ... You don't get that there is more then one point of view to every discussion.

"Awhile back I used to try and enumerate all the OSNews terms of use that he was violating in his posts "

As I said then and now , None , the fact you don't get it is rather interesting , some people are "special cases" and don't have to follow the rules other have to at all the time. I am sure you did the math and are still shaking your water head that I am still able to post here ...

"personal attacks, inflammatory language, etc) but he just doesn't get it."

How can I be personal with a coward named Google Nina ?

"but he just doesn't get it."

Am I not getting it or are you not getting it ?

Moulinneuf is not worth your time. You should ignore his type, he's just noise, neither insightful nor fully human.
