Linux is about freedom, not cost
* Freedom to examine/modify the code you use
* Freedom from proprietry lock ins
* Freedom from enforced costly upgrade treadmill
* Freedom from viruses
Also I support both Linux and Windows and I find Linux *much* easier to support. Try swapping an integrated system board on a windows system, and then try the same on a Linux system. If the system board is not the same then Windows drivers can take ages to sort out. Most Linux distributions now auto dectect hardware on the fly.
If you don't believe me then download a copy of Knoppix CD and boot your windows PC from it. It wont touch Windows.It gives a full office suite, web access etc
<<Wow! How does discussions about MSFT devolve into YOU calling me a
Its very sad to see immature people like click_to_see_more act so disrespectful toward others on this message board.
The best thing to do to click_to_see_more, is click the IGNORE button. If everyone did this he would eventully go away.

Careful, you don't to want to imitate his childish behavior.
I agree that MSFT is an excellent company.
They have $61B in cash, no long term debt, high gross and net margins, and a dominate software position.
Good Luck on your investments.

***You know, the really sick thing about**
Get a life! Go out into the world and do something worthwhile instead of wasting your time with non-stop posting like a fanatical freak. You totally disgust me.....eeeuuuuww!
>>>Interesting, Click appears to have many of those symptoms. Is he one of those board
You say that about me and you don't about your precious MSFT supporters. ....I think that indicates you have a specific agenda from the start.
You're funny. I asked you questions that you don't like. You respond with unwarranted obscenities. Don't ask me about the other MSFT supporters postings; I personally deplore their use of obscenities. I don't question their postings, because I wasn't discussing issues with them, nor were they directed to me.
Of course, I have a specific agenda from the start. As I posted yesterday, I just bought 500 shares of MSFT at $25.39; I never said I was unbiased.
I believe there are some very smart and well-informed posters (LONGS & SHORTS). I come to the board to view other posters sentiments on MSFT. Hopefully, I come across information leads with which I can research the facts further. I didn't come to read trashy talk from anyone.
Good luck with your investing.
