I did not have any question in mind, I was just wondering what people with
many years working with linux had to say abut the IBM view. I went to learn
more about the opportunities. I am unemployed and the windows world being so
saturated I needed to now more. In short, they think that in about 5 years
the competiotion will append at the desktop too, not just the server.
Does any one know company that use it as an office OS to run office type
application (word, excel, email...) in ottawa?
