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."

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 ?

I. No gratuitous use of profanity, biting sarcasm, or personal disparagement, especially directed at individuals.


It is rare that you do not personally disparage the person you are talking to.


II. No personal attacks on story authors, other readers, or news editors of this web site.


Not only do you disparage them, but you tend to attack them to.


III. Even if you are in violent disagreement or have strong feelings, find a way to keep your comments calm, and try to explain your reasoning, instead of just ranting.


I don't think I have ever read a comment by you which isn't you flipping the hell out.

IV. OSNews is not just an open source news web site, and it is not just an "alternative" OS site. Do not post comments that merely disparage a particular OS or company. Some examples of sentiments that are in violation of this rule: "Microsoft Sucks!", "Apple is dead!", "People who use KDE should be shot!", etc. If you hate Microsoft, or Apple, or Linux, or whatever, you may still talk about your hatred on OSNews, but please do so with reasoned, on-topic arguments.


You troll every single bsd story posted on this site

According to the rules, the Admins should have banned you ages ago. Many people will break one of those rules here or there, I don't think anyone else breaks four every single time they post.
