“…the reason that Penguinistas mock Windows is because
it’s not the epitome of innovation and is certainly not the best
there is. Windows is just a copy of a copy.

success was neither forseeable or inexorable. By all accounts, OS/2
and MACos should have been the success story. History took a

marketing strategy. Apple didn’t succeed because it didn’t open its
hardware base in time…”

not found in the others. However, these same distributions ensure
that they all have the latest kernel and common Open source
software like Apache, KDE/GNOME, PPP and the like.”
