A nice video about how Microsoft attempted to take down Linux and OSS in general.

Also shows just about everybody missed the smart phone factor that wiped out the desktop...well I guess M$ did keep the details filed under NT Server.

Yep Steve Ballmer's grip on Linux was so tight that Android slipped through his fingers, LOL. Microsoft came into the phone market too late in the game and that was their undoing.

I'm just glad that Linux is still here and open. Life in the PC world would be very miserable if Microsoft got their way. Can even you imagine?

You should, and make it Clear to everyone that sees your new content that Linux is by far the superior OS.

I haven't heard about those for years, I remember pulling all-nighters reading those when ESR made them available.
If you must persist, I will be forced to tar you, then gzip you and finally umount you.
