Insults aside (and, yes, I'd happily retract the subject line if I could),
don't be led to believe that Windows versus Linux is a fight between kernels
and/or operating systems. Each one comes with accompanying applications.
Each has a different paradigm. They have different codes of ethics.
Different development models (I'm a software engineer). They have economical
impact too (waste and preservation). The impact of computing is only
increasing and thugs that loathe competition have no place in this market.
The developed world could devolve into one with an economy that resembles
third-world countries and where counties (governments) are run by companies.
Don't mind? Then fine. Wait until Google, Yahoo and MSN profile you or until
Microsoft becomes a country with Passport (or its identity management and
baking plans). Monopoly/oligopolies lead to anarchy, suppression and dark
ages with no innovation (quality of life declines, classes are reset farther
