Unholy Fridays and source of M$ power

Posted 01-26-2007 at 10:14 AM by avallach

I was wondering, why M$ dominates and why Linux people can't beat this corporation. It's strange but GNU/Linux has more advantages and more of that it's free! I saw a TV programme saying something about software piracy and other things, but one of M$ employees told everybody an interesting fact. She said that M$ gave 30 000 copies of their OS to some charity organizations. The numbers doesn't matter, it's not as big number in country like Poland, but the most interesting was the word GAVE. All right they are everywhere giving your M$ OS, you nearly can't buy a laptop without it preinstalled, but do the sellers give Linux ? No I don't think so... Sad but true. I know that GNU/Linux Community is doing everywhere, but if we want to have more we can't stop on showing people where to download or purchase this OS. Telling people how to get is rather wrong, giving is the only way.
People are lazy, they won't GET their system, someone must give them the CD or install it on HDD.

OK no more complaining about M$ and Open Source. Time to complain about life...
The common fact is that Fridays are a blessing... but sometimes you have to work and work during the weekend. This is what I call the unholy Friday. I was making a simple logo in Gimp about 4 hours today. It was something new to me, because computer graphics even in such form like making a simple logo are far beyond my abilities.
Anyway when you start the weekend with bad mood, you have to work and study during it, you know that all next week your life will be falling apart :/

Best wishes to all who will have no pleasure during the weekend ! :-)
