I know I'll get modded way down for this, but it sounds reasonable to me. How can fracking at depths of 10,000+ feet contaminate ground/drinking water that is less than 200 feet deep?
Most of my Windows computer usage (both desktop and server) is for business use. I like many things about linux and used it to fill some special needs scenarios, but until it has something comparable to Active Directory Group Policies, I consider using it unless it is a last resort/only option.
I think what is more important are the release of greenhouse gases worldwide versus just the USA. Worldwide volcanoes, undersea fractures in the ocean floor, and underwater magma displacements put more greenhouse gases into the air in a year than man can in a year. I also recall an article that says that methane releases from cows contribute more greenhouse gases than man does as well.
But I can't find anywhere that streams Formula 1 races live, so that keeps me with Speedchannel on Dish Network.
An enterprise quality LTO-5 tape drive is $1000, and tapes are $100 each. Compare that to an enterprise disk-to-disk backup solution that is $15000 for the hardware and another $5000 for the software. If you are in a business that is only open 8-5, meaning you have a large window to do backups on nights/weekends, which do you think your boss will make you go with?
