the one advantage windows will always have over linux is a uniform driver standard (well, and better marketing).  this make linux fine for servers, but not as great for home computing.

and, say some guy's setting up a new computer or talking about, say, installing linux or talking about his job or collage class, and it's suddenly pushed down 10 spots by ten different ways of asking "boxers or briefs?".  It's not bad that you post polls, but you post so many random polls they lose their effect and it becomes one giant survey.  no insult to you, of course, but that's just what i think about the polls.

ibm uses linux, but they're stuck on web servers.  you wont see a popular widespread desktop made for linux anytime soon.  and unless a meteor destroys every microsoft institution in the next 50 years, i dont see windows moving from the top of the market, especially with the antitrust thing thrown out the window.

Well, sometimes I use my CX486DX2 66 Mhz Win 95 partition to do some text-mode browsing using the free GNU text mode browser Lynx. Lynx was the first internet browser that came out, and it rocks if you have slow computers. If you wanna see how it looked like, just check this screenshot. BTW: This post is being written using Lynx Wink



Nice uh? Wink
