hadess: The point of my post didn't meant to imply he was telling people to use Microsoft over Linux. Though I admit, maybe my choice of words wasn't all good.
However, that had little to do with the meaning of the rest of my post. Simply put: Whatever the Red Hat CEO says, whatever SuSE and Novell are up to, whatever Microsoft says doesn't make a difference to the whole scheme of things. Every where I was reading about these events, people were treating it like it was the end of the world, or bad omens.
They aren't. It's evolution. Things happen, businesses change focus.
If you think that everybody should be using Linux, you're an idiot who can't see the missing bits. Probably as stupid as that Windows user who downloads warez, and uses mIRC thinking he's l33t. Just about.
Now, where do I even make this suggestion? Would I like everyone to use Linux, or alternative OS's? Of course. That would be great. Do I think we are at a state where this is possible? No. Do I think it's going in that direction? Yes.
Please don't suggest I am saying something I don't, nor believe.
