[News] Vista is Broken So GNU/Linux Takes Its Place

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu (Jaunty) vs Windows (Vista)

| I complained in a previous post about how much my windows machine has let me 
| down and how much I was ruing my decision to get a Mac. Anyway my saviour has 
| come in the form of the latest version of Ubuntu.  



Windows Vista: Sold but not deployed

| Microsoft says it remains happy with enterprise sales of Vista -- however,
| the software behemoth acknowledges that many businesses which have bought
| Vista licences are yet to deploy the software.  


Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.

| I then added the KDE desktop environment and was all set. My startup time is
| around 30 seconds and shutdown even less. I have the 3D Compiz Fusion running
| and everyone at work was really impressed by the speed and look. Texstar and
| crew really outdid themselves on this one. As of now, there is no way VISTA
| will ever be re-installed. The only thing I regret is that I had to pay for
| VISTA, and it counts as a sale for Microsoft. I wonder what the actual
| figures are for VISTA usage, and how many people have done what I did, and
| upgrade to Linux?


Acer bets big on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer has stated that it will be pushing Linux aggressively on its laptops and
| netbooks.


Microsoft sees slide in profits


Feeling the heat at Microsoft

| If I ask you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.
