Slashdot hates windows, love linux, and kinda love mac. So bad comments as expected. Enterprises are going to think twice before upgrading windows 8, as they always do in major versions. But for average Joe, is going to be ok to have the new shinny windows box in perhaps a new laptop.

Meanwhile Enterprise users are happy with the release centos 6.0. I mean thats the beauty about open source, and diversity of distributions, if you are not happy you can use wathever distro you want. But its just wrong talk about the "majority of people" if you dont have a source of what your are saying. This distro is not intended for developers that want the lastest distro, its for Enterprise users that want stability, vendor support, and long term support.

All of this is because Oracle wants to be like apple. From a Techcrunch article 04/20/2011 "Larry Ellison has always wanted to be the Steve Jobs of the enterprise. " Like Apple, Oracle wants to take away complexity for its customers and bundle the entire IT stack neatly together so that it works without hassles and is optimized for Oracle’s software.

Progress means replacing a theory that is wrong with one more subtly wrong.
