iSuppli has a cute article tracking the effect of each new release of M$’s OS on DRAM volume. They reveal that “8″ has had the least impact of any release all the way back to Lose 3.1. They suggest it’s bloat/DRAM requirements of the OS that have plunged along with emergence of non-Wintel stuff but it’s also a reflection of the willingness of the channel to plug up with M$’s stuff. ie. With “8″ the world is just dipping a toe in the pool instead of diving in.

My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
