Pros and Cons of the Major Operating Systems

,----[ Quote ]
| Dean Walden is an avid internet user, watcher, 
| promoter, website builder and researcher. The 
| Ubuntu version of the Linux operating system is

Should You Switch From Microsoft To Linux? 

,----[ Quote ]
| 4. Usability
| Another of the keys of your future success is 
| the fact than many issues are already resolved 
| due to the widespread use of desktop 
| environments KDE and GNOME. There are other 
| options in this segment, of course, but both 
| alternatives have proved to be very valid in 
| this field.
| 5. Price
| Of course, this is a key to the implementation 
| of Linux in an enterprise. Although there are 
| free versions, often corporate usage imposes a 
| charge that is associated with a contract for 
| tech support and such.



Android Gaining on Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| In fact, Financial Times reporter Chris
| Nuttall claims, Android could soon emerge
| as the major smartphone that isn't the
| iPhone. Android systems now operate on 12
| different phones with 32 phone carriers
| supporting them around the world. And
| Motorola, HTC, and Samsung are all busy
| developing their own Android-based
| handsets.
