How Microsoft is loosing to GNU/Linux September 1, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.
Danijel Orsolic has written the opinion peice where he thinks that Linux is winning the batte against Microsoft Windows. He claims that WGA and the increasing expense of Windows is “helping” Linux win this “war”.
My Thoughts; While I very much dislike WGA and the cost of Windows I pretty much disagree with the guy. Linux is not winning any new converts and those that actually look at it usually get frustrated at the lack of well developed, quality applications. Windows is usually considered part of the new computer so the customer doesnt see the additional costs nor do they care much, WGA is transparent enough to the point its non-obtrusive and those that actually do care were using Linux before. Not a really interesting article. Seems like a zealot piece at the most.
