Not enough interest. Topic heading in jeopardy?y

Is it really the foul fruit of Redmond-- or nothing? Are we slaves to BBBBB forever?

No, of course not. Mac OS X has it's place, so do the varying flavors of Linux, FreeBSD, (sadly BeOS died), PC-DOS, the new upcoming Amiga 4.0, etc.

I don't think it will ever be a Micro$oft world, especially with China loving Linux over Micro$oft.

Better not be in jeopardy. I'm just getting my schwerve on with Linux. Got a Mandrake box running about two days ago. I'm gonna have lots of questions very soon.

I gave mandrake a try, found the learning curve to be too great to be bothered (any extra effort on my part to load a cd rom seems like poor planning)...

I was pleased, however, with the interface and features and the open source coding makes the price right
