Linux "There is a lot of confusing information about the GNU/Linux operating system, open source and free software, and related issues in the press today. Many of these technologies and concepts are difficult to understand because they deviate from the standard historical traditions of the software industry. There are also a number of sponsored reports and other corporate propaganda published around the Web that smear the image of Linux and free software. In the interest of making a few basic concepts clear, this article will bring light to the darkness perpetuated by uninformed journalists, campaigning CEOs, and misleading advertisements."

"Actually, CrossOver office *cannot* run Office 2003, and even OfficeXP is virtually unusable under it because of performance problems and serious bugs that render many of its features unusable."

I run Office XP on Codeweavers; what are the bugs? It has silver stars which indicate some bugs.

FYI to OSNews readers: 2000 is marked with gold stars by Codeweavers; typically silver stars for Office XP. Gold stars are flawless performance.
