The above article is a good read, and gives power to what I originally
said and Aaron agreed on. Microsoft is getting hurt with every
patent they try to sue open source vendors with. They have to
settle and get no compensation.
Microsoft is weaker than it was 5 years ago, Steve Ballmer has to
do with it, he is concentrating on the things that are wrong, sure
maybe someone else can bring MS to the top again, but that is
very unlikely, Steve Ballmer will remain there indefinitely.
A year ago I was very pessimistic with the way Linux was fairing
worldwide, nowadays I get more confident that Linux is getting
stronger and that MS is having a hard time keeping up. What I have
talked to with other IT's with are only Windows users gives me even
more confident, they even believe MS is not going to get any
better, and most of them agrees that Windows 7 is just another bad
So let's get our hopes up, Linux is going to get better and better.
