Microsoft: Yep, we teach Best Buy to trash Linux (DailyFinance)

Sep 9th 2009 2:26PM Best Buy would be smart to keep that employee on their payroll even if he managed to break both arms and legs. If they were to let him go it would be like throwing gasoline on a fire.

Flipping the Linux switch: Package management 101 (Download Squad)

Jan 8th 2008 2:08PM People like Jason confuse familiar with easy-to-use. If he's happy with the choices Steve Jobs made for him, then great. But it's rude to suggest that the Steve Jobs choice is the right choice for everyone. As far as I can see, the only choice in operating systems that's right for everyone is the one that gives multiple choices.

Nov 19th 2007 10:46PM Hey, just use Synaptic... Oh right, that's for Linux only. Sorry, carry on, you're sure to find a good solution some day.

Mar 7th 2007 6:43PM It sounds like you've been fed some bad information. The office suite (Open Office) that you speak of that is "missing features" or "isn't very robust" will do 95% of everything Office 2003 will do, and some things it won't do. It can also read and write to Microsoft's formats without breaking stride. And both Linux and Open Office are part of a much larger movement away from the proprietary business model called Open Source. Ever heard of it? I'm not an investor, just like you're not computer knowledgeable, but if I was I would do research with people who knew and understood Open Source.
