Mindshare-Momentum For FLOSS

That other OS is a total mess. It has been from the beginning when salesmen decided what an OS should be and“Windows is a total mess. A lot of those involved in developing it have left and it truly shows. Just look what a mess recent releases of Windows have been, both when released and when patched (bricked)” violated every rule in the book and even common sense. It’s worse today because of the huge installed base forced on the world. Now the damage done by every flaw costs the world $billions and it’s not “economic activity” but waste, crime, and brutally unreliable IT.

That’s the reason I got away 15 years ago. It’s too bad the world has endured so much harm all these years before coming to its senses. The world now sees that FLOSS works. Just about everyone has used Android/Linux and knows it works. Just about everyone has used web applications running on GNU/Linux and knows it works. The poor souls still using that other OS are locked in miserable dark damp cells peering at a vibrant world outside.

All the FUD has failed. The diversification has failed. The bullying and dirty tricks have failed. It’s just been too slow a process but finally it’s happening.
