I don't have anything relevant to say I just had to lol at the separated at birth picture!!!!
Now you're just mashing it!
Not if you kick them enough.
note: I do not support kicking puppies.
This is actually pretty true in many circumstances. Most corporate networks have a Linux, Solaris or other form of Linux in the background. While the consumer desktop may basically be Microsoft generally we all know business is where the money is unless you look at it from a mass consumption perspective. So even though all or most consumer desktops have Windows, Linux is pulling the big money on the servers for all of those desktops predominately in one form or another. So this is an interesting way to look at it to say the least if not utter truth.
I look forward to Linux moving in on the consumer desktop (if this happens). I really like linux however there is little support for the common games so I must have windows on my PC for all my non work related material.
Thats one PUPPY i don't want to kick... lol
Linux is pretty much the foundation for mobile platforms like tablets and smartphones that are out and I'd like to think the number of active linux based mobile devices alone can rival the amount of active windows computers.
Instead of fighting microsoft on their playing field, Linux simply moved to a whole new one
Linux has spread like wildfire and it's gravitated to all of those pesky places that Microsoft didn't see as being important, or even relevant. But time has altered relevancy in many markets and there is real money being made in a lot of places that didn't seem important to them. Microsoft may be privately kicking themselves in the rear for being shortsighted, while at the same time proclaiming that Linux is still not relevant. Nope, not at all,........
Note: Linux is now a viable desktop alternative if your not heavy into PC gaming. (they're making great strides in gaming too) My (FREE) Ubuntu boxes work fast with fewer resources and slower, older processors and very little RAM. (You should see it go on an i7-870!) They are totally reliable and the OS has everything you need at home or in a small business environment. Drivers are not a problem for me and everything updates better than Windows does. There are free software programs that will utilize every aspect of your PC's features too.
If it wasn't for my gaming addictions, I'd drop Microsoft and never look back.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
seems that both MS and Apple have taken 'drop - kicks ' at Linux over the years. Know how could they kick the adorable Puppy Linux ? that a 5 year old could run on some outdated hardware or an old laptop that mom and dad no longer used...come to think of it Puppy Linux based on DSL had quite few derivatives like Chubby Puppy [included office apps]as well as and others for a MacPup?? experience.so over the years the Linux Desktop has been kicked around & usually by those that do not know any better.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Go Linux and go Zemlin for having the cajones to make that comment :) I recently started playing with Ubuntu and man it is really awesome especially when you consider it is free.
Rofl it is really funny especially on Apples side as there own OS is pretty much a Unix based Frankenstein anyway. Since it was written by them over a Unix shell I guess it could even fit the original definition for Linux in all realities. I think Microsoft has really dropped the ball here personally. Think about it if what I said about Apple is even just partially true almost ever single mobile smart device runs on a variation of Linux no matter whether it is a iPod, a Android smart phone or a Slate/BB tab or probably even a WEB OS device.
