good point r9, hadn't thought of that part too true...
Novell is owned by MS? Am I in the wrong universe?
apparently not fully owned, but enough that MS can tell Novell what to do all the time.
This doesn't make much sense at all...the writer is suggesting that we would rather not pay for a product that WORKS!
Not to mention the contributions of computers such as Road runner.
If you are a Microsoft engineer this may be true.
Next thing you know we'll have an amendment where people can sue claiming ignorance...
The comparison is with Android, OS X, M$ Window$ operating syatems, which are usually considered 100% paid code-hackers.
Wikipedia says that OS X comes from BSD, which comes from UNIX. Linux is also derived from Unix.
The poor quality of Linux apps (coding, usability, range, flexibility & depth) is not because of the Op sys, but the Enterprise-only focus of Linux.
Linux has no equivalent to Dragon Naturally Speaking, CIVILIZATION 4 (human evolution simulator), Omnipage (OCR 99% accurate) nor Servant Salamander (most powerful file manager EVER) - my most used apps).
So Linux is for Wikipedia-editing, web browsing & messaging IMHO.
linux is for server administration, web hosting, audio and video production, large scale image rendering...the list goes on. just because it doesnt do what you need it to do doesnt reduce it wikipedia editing.
