Default Re: The "Linux questions (and other stuff)" thread

Do you know what Microsoft does to companies that scare them? They buy them.

Android is not a desktop OS. Microsoft is going after the tablet market, because they know the desktop is beginning to decline.

In about ten years the desktop will be a niche product. Everything will be done on some sort of touchscreen device, or some yet to be invented interface. MS will be there, you can count on it.

As for the hardware companies, Intel has been slapped with all kinds of antitrust litigation, and they have gone the rounds with AMD, Motorola, et al just like Apple and Samsung are doing now. AMD and Intel are tied to each other just like Microsoft and Apple are.

Oh, and everyone's favorite Chinese corporation, Foxconn, has been building motherboards for all the big desktop computer players for decades...

I tire of this. I like Linux; but I am old enough to appreciate that there is a place and time when Windows is necessary.

You don't have to like it. I don't have to care; and I don't.
