More Linux Desktop disinformation
James Robertson on Linux, a subject where I think he may be a little out-of-date:
Desktops and Hair patterns:
"That's about the size of it. I much prefer managing applications on a Linux server, but I just can't see myself fighting with Linux on the desktop."So, MS is good at desktops but not applications:

MS Outlook - it's teh Sux0r."Fighting the Linux desktop" - since when? Welcome to 2006 - where the only things you have to fight with in Linux is where MS dominance has stopped software suppliers bothering to write some applications. But the truth is that everything I want to use works, and is nice aand configurable. Oh, and there is usually a choice of app (even if using MS Exchange, I am told)
Linux is easier to install and setup than Windows, and most apps can be updated automatically, at least in Ubuntu.
Oh, and I don't have a beard!!
