Nice to see HP and Dell were installing Linux on desktops as long ago as 1999, but were forced to stop in early 2001 due to certain alleged anti-competitive practices by M$. M$ allegedly threatened to cancel supply contracts to OEMs if they continued to sell Linux pre-installed.

Question of the day!

Why is it that a guy who has, provably, NEVER trusted a single soul on this perishing planet;

Devises software updates that all but insist that one sigh a testimonial that states:

"I Trust Bill, I'll always trust Bill no matter how bad things look!"

Why is that?
