There is one glaring error in the wiki article, however.

Quote:
In order to pay the employee, the staffing firm is paid by the worksite company at an agreed upon bill rate, which can be 50 to 100 percent higher than the pay rate.
I know for a fact it's usually more like a 100%-200% markup on the labor the resell. And as far as I'm concerned that's all these consulting firms really are: resellers of MY services. Most don't have ANY technical experts on the payroll at all. They're companies full of headhunters and nothing more.

Forget MS, what about vi or emacs? or Gnome vs KDE?

What's this, roll your own trolling? OP, it's usually good to post your opinion and then a discussion can open. If you don't even want to post your own opinion, why should we? Hint: it's either 1) like/love MS or b) hate/despise/dislike MS or iii) have no opinion either way. And then add reasons.

Frankly, who cares? We are Linux users and the time spent responding to this thread could have been spent installing Gentoo.

Well I didn't make you post here you could have installed Gentoo if you wanted.

And for the rest of it I agree with many of you. I really don't Like Microsoft or there way of doing Business. Most of there products suck to. Windows most of all. But the Zune Xbox and whatever else they have. I mean I really hate them. I won't buy any of there products.
But anyway thank's for posting instated of installing Gentoo.

I don't like Microsoft's cutthroat business practices, but that seems to be the name of the game these days for any large corporation.

Yes, they treat their employees well.

Their physical products (keyboards, mice) are great.

Their software has deep down fundamental flaws that their updates are simply a bandaid for.

Vista is a lot of good ideas implemented in an extremely inefficient manner, and a lot of bad ideas like building DRM protection and "phoning home" implemented in an extremely hard-to-hack manner.

No you didn't. But take a look at the title below my user name and ask yourself why I would have responded.

So? was there anyone to say they like M$?
The HW they (re)sell (re)branded would be much the same if it could find Your store with the original OEM.
The XBOX would be twice the price if it where produced by console-only-making-co.
'Hollywood-cowboy' bully all the time...
What's to be liked there anyway?
This thread is dead end, I --> unsubscribe :-)
