"The name of this blog is “Linux and open source” but the question 
Microsoft wants you to ask yourself is, simply, Linux *or *open source?"


"It’s now quite easy to run a Windows box in which the only proprietary 
program you have is Windows. Open Office, Firefox, Thunderbird, The 
Gimp, and Google together make for a pretty nice office suite.

So the release of a Windows Installer for Ubuntu LTS 8.04 
<>(Hardy Heron) is more than 
“very cool.” It’s a turning point.

Once you get the Windows installer, and the Hardy Heron flies, you 
really need to try those open source applications you’re used to in 
their native habitat."

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
