Linux will never take over, cause microsoft has lots of money and power and the minds. Linux has only a tad of the server industry, and really no money since its free, and just has computer nerds designing it their way. But my favorite linux distro is debian btw(I use it for my server )
Pimp, as to saying that Microsoft is indestructible...Totally untrue. 70% of all their revenue comes from Windows. If they make one wrong step, and piss OEMs off, it's all over. Personally, I think Longhorn will be that step. It is going to run off proprietary hardware, and that will kill Windows. When that happens, I'm going Linux.
No one in the whole industry will want to have parts that will be totally incompatible with the new standard lying around. Lets say Dell is getting ready for the Longhorn switch. They run off proprietary hardware already, but it does comply to the current IBM PC standard. The Longhorn hardware is nowhere even near the IBM PC standard. What will Dell do with all this old hardware that will become useless? They can't make Linux consumer PC's, as that is against Microsoft's licensing agreeement. Companies like Asus, AOpen, Abit, and MSI will suddenly have all this hardware lying around that has lost most of it's appeal and value. Retailers such as Newegg will also feel the burn, because they will have to sell hardware at cut rates before, as well as after, the Longhorn switch. It will not happen, EVER. Even if they shut off hardware manufacturing, odds are they will still have lots of parts lying around in warehouses that are almost useless, or have little value. Selling them at reduced rates will only make them lose money. Also, the appeal of dual booting Windows and another OS will be gone, so consumers will not want to build or buy one PC for Windows and one for Linux, or another operating system. The whole concept is flawed. Microsoft is reinventing a standard that is fine already and is incredibly well established. They will not be able to pull it off, it will never happen. They do not realize that by doing this, the whole industry will feel a sting, and the industry frankly does not want to do this.
Thats why i make everythiong in bait and tackle homosexual tyler and skitch. so i can flame bitches like you! you fucking n00bs. you two be gay together somewhere else. your fucking ruining this site bitches. but, thats just what i think. mabey someone else can give me what they think of those two? i personally this skitch is tyler but is just trying to get attention. what do you think people?
I think you're all a bunch of punk ass motherfuckers.
As for Bill Gates being too rich, get a fuckin' life. Gates is a shrewd business man who took a concept, grabbed some of the best college minds around, developed a pretty kickass OS and built a fuckin' empire.Capitalism at it's finest!
MS going bankrupt? Get your head out, MS has 58 Billion in cash reserves! That's cash at hand. If you're all so fucking brilliant, design your own OS and see just how easy it is to keep hackers from exploiting it.
People who complain over the internet really do need to get lives, Bill gates was a great entrepreneur like you said, and because everybody is jealous of him because he actually did something with his life, now their just complaining on their little keyboard about pointless issues.
He WAS a great entrepunear. Or how ever the fuck you spell that word. But now, he is developing OS that contain spyware and prevent you from altering your computer. It will be the end of freedom for high end computer users.
