i just came home from a worldwide vacation and guess what i saw. I saw everyone from europe to asia to africa using computers and being able to communicate with each other easily because they are using windows pc's. There's no doubt in my mind that the existence of windows os is one of the biggest factors allowing for the rapid spread of economic globalization and the rapid spread of the internet itself. It's not just the existence of a common operating system but also the use of common office applications that allows people and businesses to communicate easily without someone like joel klein trying to throw a wrench in the process of economic globalization and the internet. For example, if i write some document using ms word and need to send it to some business partner in europe, then my business partner is able to read that document because he's using ms word too. But joel klein does not like this situation. He wants to make my life and my business partner's life unnecessarily difficult for some reason. Why does joel klein want to do this? Anyone have a clue?
well, this is just one of millions of compatibility questions that's going to make everyone's life a living hell, if joel's klein tower of babel os vision comes true.
by the way, what the hell is the difference between turbo linux, suse linux, and true linux? Does netscape make a browser for suse linux? If not, how long will it take for them to come out with a browser for suse linux? I hope it doesn't take as long as it took (years) for them to come up with a new browser for apple os.
Did you ever realize how much your all caps writing hurts your credibility?
But apart from that, let's address your post:
Yes, Linux does run Apple software. Look for a package called 'executor'
Turbo Linux and Suse Linux are different distributions. Which basically means that a different company puts them together (but always from pieces publically available). True Linux? Never heard of that one, maybe it's a distribution too?
And yes, Netscape does work on Suse Linux, just like it works on any other distribution. The Suse distribution even includes a prepackages rpm of netscape, and has been since ages.
i thought the antitrust case had to do with how microsoft supposedly acted anti-competitive toward netscape (although netscape's website has been continuously available to every internet user in the world for the past decade).
but now, as a supposed remedy to the netscape case, why on earth is joel klein focussing on microsoft's ms office division. What does ms office have to do with netscape? Does it compute?
is there any doubt left that joel klein is either perpetually drunk or a complete lunatic?
what galaxy is joel klein living in???
hey, joel klein, which is it? Are you saying microsoft acted monopolistic in the browser market or in the office productivity suite market?
