How A Microsoft Veteran Learned To Love Linux And Why It Matters

Great article.

"After The Software Wars", is a new book in which former Microsoft employee Keith Curtis explores the worlds of proprietary and free software. Quoting from the article:

While I came to not be all that thrilled with Fedora itself, I was floored merely by the installation process. It contained a graphical installer that ran all the way to completion, it resized my NTFS partition -- which I considered a minor miracle, setup dual boot, and actually did boot, and let me surf the Web. I didn't have a clue what to do next, but the mere fact that this all worked told me more about the potential of Linux than anything I had read so far. You cannot, by accident, build an airplane that actually flies.

Is GNU/Linux the Ultimate Choice!! We have already (symlinked) M$ Linux it’s aliased by Novell
ln –symbolic “M$ Linux” “Novell open$u$e”
cd “./Novell open$u$e/mono”
