Well, "afterburners on", let the flames fly......
The reason that corporate America likes to bash Linux and support
Microsoft boils down to one thing... the stock market.
The big corporations scratch each others backs to keep the
stock market rising..this is the primary concern for most
chief executives...and the lackeys below echo the leader's
Microsoft charges exorbitant prices for things which linux
gives away for free...that ain't good for stock prices.
So they like to trash linux. They are especially sensitive
because Linux actually IS better than Windows, even NT.

That is because they respect it, they would look like fools to
criticize the only decent server available for the PC.
Linux afficienados use names to criticize Windows because they know
just about everyone has experienced window's systems going
down for no good reason, and they see that big pile of
software, which costs thousands, and is useless. Not to
mention all the secret codes being kept on their computers
in the registry.
Microsoft got away with fooling alot of people into
thinking it was the best OS back in the days of dos and
windows3.1. Nowadays, people are becoming very intelligent
about the inner workings of an OS, and anyone who knows what
they are doing, WILL NOT use an OS whose source code is kept
What kind of secret government operation is Gate's hiding?

Now, now, calm down little windows user.... you sound like a 7th grader
with those comments.
I'll bet Fred Miller's network can out-perform your Window's network,
nah na-nah na na-nah..........
