Wal-Mart, Dell offers help breathe new life into Linux

| When the world's largest retailer and the second largest computer maker both 
| offer Linux-based PCs, maybe Linux isn't just for geeks anymore. 



Forrester: Businesses still saying no to Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Software incompatibility, the need for hardware upgrades, and comfort with 
| existing versions of Microsoft Windows are all causing businesses that once 
| planned to roll out Windows Vista as fast as consumers to put off their 
| deployments, according to Forrester Research.   


Software Assurance Storm Warning

,----[ Quote ]
| In a report to be published today, Forrester Research sees a series of 
| customer hurricanes coming Microsoft's way. If they strike, they could wash 
| away many Software Assurance contracts. Software Assurance is the discounted 
| upgrade option available with Open, Open Value and Select volume licensing 
| contracts.    


Vista to Ubuntu Linux, The Route to Recovery.

,----[ Quote ]
| I can say to Microsoft now, you have lost a customer. You are losing many 
| because you didn’t care. Vista is the worst operating system I have seen in 
| 26 years of computing. This week I had to buy a new mouse for my desktop (It 
| runs Ubuntu as well now), I went out of my way to buy a non-Microsoft mouse. 
| I will never buy another Microsoft product. Linux is finally ready for the 
| desktop, for home use and businesses.     
| Crappy Windows OS: $200. Ubuntu Linux: Priceless, literally!


The Silent Microsoft Exodus?

,----[ Quote ]
| A few months ago when Robert Scoble and Niall Kennedy left Microsoft,
| the blogosphere got twittery. There were arguments and counter
| arguments. Ironically there are more senior executives who have left
| in recent days, and haven't sparked much discourse, even though their
| presence (or not) could have an impact on the bottom line of Microsoft.
