Windows: Will it survive, die or thrive????

Posted 03-12-2013 at 03:27 PM by Nbiser

http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/...er-windows-era

This is a very interesting article in my opinion. Windows is only hanging on because that is what people are used to, and Microsoft has, so to speak, cornered the manufacturers into pre-installing it on their computers. This article was written in the days of Vista; 7, a relatively good OS, came in-between Vista and 8, helping to stave off the death of Microsoft. Now with the advent of Windows 8, we are seeing another...

How to catch an elephant in the Africa
  • MATHEMATICIANS hunt elephants by going to Africa, throwing out everything that is not an elephant, and catching one of whatever is left.

  • EXPERIENCED MATHEMATICIANS will attempt to prove the existence of at least one unique elephant before proceeding to step 1 as a subordinate exercise.

  • PROFESSORS OF MATHEMATICS will prove the existence of
