I don't see how this can kill Moodle, as they are not buying Moodle, just 2 of its partners. There are over 50 partners world-wide that provide funding for Moodle development. They will never get the largest Moodle partner,, who are dedicated to open source.

Comment Migrating to Ubuntu (Score 1) 1213 1213

Everyone at my company was still using XP until a few months ago when some management changed to Win7... doesn't look like the rest of us will be getting Win7 licenses anytime soon so I've decided to migrate to Ubuntu. I've been using Linux on my desktop at home since 2000 so I'm quite comfortable with it and I can't think of anything that I would absolutely require that would keep on the Windows platform. Besides, Wine can probably handle whatever issues come up.

Comment Only the ignorant still using inkjets (Score 1) 651 651

Inkjets are a complete waste of money. Get yourself a b&w laser printer for document printing and go get any photos you want printed over to your local grocery store (via SD card or whatever) where you can get them printed for cheap. I try explaining this to some people but they don't seem to get it and would still rather waste money on ink and glossy paper.
