"After reading a story about how Microsoft is now openly
admitting that Linux is the number one threat to Windows, I
realized that I am one of very few people whose entire home/office
computer network is 100% Microsoft-free. And I manage to get along
just fine, thank you."
"I use my computers for work all day, every day, on NewsForge
and other OSDN Web sites. I am not on the geek/programmer side of
the house. I am a writer. And I have all the Linux word processors
and text processors and other tools I need to do my job, and then
"For instance, I'm writing this as a break from writing a
chapter for an upcoming book for which many of the illustrations
are going to be screenshots of Web sites, and I am using a little
utility called Ksnapshot (part of KOffice) to grab them. Almost
every time I have some little computing task I need to perform, it
seems I have a utility somewhere on my machine that will do it, up
to and including a choice of three pieces of presentation software
that will let me produce slide shows with as much obnoxious
animation as the worst PowerPoint display you ever saw."
