Why does Windows XP refuse to die?

,----[ Quote ]
| A new poll into Operating System popularity 
| by a British computer magazine has revealed 
| that an incredible 37 percent of respondents 
| are still using Windows XP. That's more than 
| Windows 7 which managed to woo 30 percent of 
| the folk taking part, and Vista could only 
| garner a pretty poor 16 percent of support. 
| This being a PC magazine it should come as no 
| great surprise to see Linux being used by 8 
| percent of respondents and Mac OS by 7 
| percent.

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/24/psyb0t_home_networking_worm/ <copied> Vulnerable devices include any home router or modem that uses Linux Mipsel, has an administration interface, sshd, or telnet in a DMZ, and employs a weak password. Once the malware takes hold, it locks legitimate users out of the device by blocking telnet, sshd, and web access. It then makes the devices part of a botnet.

[NEWS] Linux sysadmins refuse to use Linux on their desktops
"I would be very surprised if the usage was more than 1%. I've been a Linux system administrator for 10 years. I know at least 5 other Linux sysadmins, none of us use Linux as our desktop. I used to have multiple-boot on my laptop so I could boot into Linux to replicate my server environment. However in the past few years I've had enough RAM that I could simply have a vmware guest image running Linux. As a desktop, Linux is mediocre. It offers no advantages and a few disadvantages (like software compatibility, if you work on the web you need photoshop). I'm getting worried about XP (I had to skip Vista, it was terrible), and I'm skeptical about Windows 7 (if I can't pirate it I won't recommend it to my clients, because then I'm obliged to call MS on an 800 number to re-activate etc. So I might have to get away from Microsoft eventually.
