I know all that. I want to
get started on Linux quickly
Make the right choice.....now.
What is free software ?
- Free software (e.g. Linux) stands for freedom and liberty
It does not have the restrictions imposed by the software licenses
from commercial vendors and greedy businessmen. It gives one and all,
an equal and fair opportunity. No invisible handcuffs, fetters, and
chains, to straitjacket you, and make you a helpless slave. Discover
the real meaning of free as in
- Linux is endorsed by professionals like this
who have no vested interests, and by a
whole lot of people around the world.
- You do not need fliMSy and cluMSy software, do you ?
- Linux makes economic sense (yes, really)
But, what is GNU/Linux ? Or, who is
- MS is fliMSy and cluMSy,
and has a
pathetic record of security. Only huts are made of dung and
clay. Forts are built with stone and concrete.
- Do you know the Perils of using
- BBC reports the serious
consequences of using MS-Office.
- The kiwis say no to Microsoft, and YES to open source.
- Winners choose open source
- A rubbish called DLL
- Linux makes economic sense.
Yes, Really ! (This is a pdf file).
Although the free in Free Software like Linux, implies
"liberty" and not "gratis", the "Total
cost of ownership" of Linux is much lesser than MS ! This
aspect, makes Linux particularly attractive for academic
institutions and intellectuals (who are not always part of the
economically pampered tribe). Products which these people make,
are naturally superior to those made by greedy, short- sighted swindlers.
- And it
makes business sense too
is based on a technological masterpiece which won the world's
greatest award in Computer Science
You don't get a Nobel
Prize, if you invent a bullock cart !
- The only thing MS is useful for :Wallpapers, to inspire you
- Linux believes in letting you
enjoy the jokes and the joker.
Don't miss the movie !

awkward fact (discovered by Rafael Rivera) that it contained code
borrowed from an open source project originally made available
under the GPLv2. As such, Microsoft should have made the source
code for its tool available, and most certainly shouldn't have
offered it under the license terms it did.
Microsoft also faced accusations last week that it had patented
an innovation that amounted to nothing more than the extremely
useful UNIX "sudo" command albeit with a GUI which
has been around for at least 20 years. Unquote
