Soooo... by the end of next decade they are building a Linux distro.

The trick is that it will only run a version of Microsoft Office and almost nothing else. it will have a packing system that reboots the machine every 15 minutes, and have it's very own version of gcc that has tons of undocumented function calls.

Yeah, but "it's only business" purposefully ignores the fact that these are people, people that have kids in many cases. It also overlooks the fact that these people helped them make money hand over fist. Yeah, they are selling shitty products to Microsoft zombies in a lot of cases, but they still are people.

Yeah... they make the company money. Nothing is owed to them. Let the fuckers starve. Welcome to the US corporate jungle, where you're not allowed up in the tree to get a banana while the monkeys in suits shit on you.

I use a linux desktop for all my day-to-day stuff, both at home and at work. The desktop environments are either plane jane or way overdone, but they are adequate for doing work and that's a lot difference than 5 or 6 years ago. Excluding the braindead acceptance of Office file formats for a moment you *can* do your everyday business on linux. It's that Office lever that causes the most issue, and being an admin that isn't really an issue for me, of course.
