Comment Nothing can beat Microsoft at the desktop, nothing (Score 1) 357

Nothing can beat Microsoft at the desktop simply because the mindset of how to use a PC means Windows. You can cheer about how you install it on grandma's but for every installation, there are other 10 new shinny Windows 7 installations being sold. Linux desktop is a fun dream to toy around with just like those who tweak their cars...

Sadly the only "Unix" challenge to a Windows desktop is the MacOS.

bah... POS! Message ID: 1512 Silverlight installation failed because upgrading Silverlight for Developers requires the latest Silverlight for Developers installer. If you are not a developer and want to avoid this error in the future, follow these steps: * Close your browser. * Uninstall Silverlight by following the Silverlight Uninstall Instructions. * Download and install the latest version of Silverlight.
