I don't think that's the argument. Direct Linux support is going to be very unlikely anywhere, but using open standards should be common in universities and the difference is between "do you support" and "is it possible to use".

As for the whole "noone allows linux on their work desktops", people used to say this about macs too (outside design), now almost 1/2 of my office uses them. Not just coders/designers either.

Bing Search Tainted By Pro-Microsoft Results 582

bdcny7927 writes "Just as Bing is gaining popularity, some disturbingly pro-Microsoft and anti-Apple search results are rearing their ugly heads. Case in point: a search on Bing for the phrase, 'Why is Windows so expensive?' returned this as the top link: 'Why are Macs so expensive.' That's right. You're not hallucinating."

I use Evolution on a daily basis at work for my gmail, Domino-via-IMAP, and Exchange ( not 2007 ). About once a week I need to run a tiny script to restart evolution and reset the exhange connector. Other then that I haven't had any issues with it, and it was updated (Ubuntu repos) last week so at least a little dev is still going on.

Of course I might just be lucky, but it seems to work fine for me.
