What do WLinux and Benedict Cumberbatch have in common? They're both fond of Pengwin


Re: Microsoft dreams finally come true

What Mage said!!!

(Although I don't find cygwin totally frustrating: My use case was probably less intense than Mage's.)

When I need a *nix environment, I run a *nix. NOT some silly limited environment shoehorned into a bloated OS. Especially when that bloated OS takes up most of the resources I need to work while being provided with constant "updates" to fix problems that have nothing to do with my work and often break the basic security and functionality of the system.

What this "pengwin" proves is that users and developers WANT to run *nix, and M$ is terrified of losing market $hare once the world realizes they Don't Need Windows.

Disclaimer: At work I had a choice between a Mac and "upgrading" to Win 10. I now run an OS X Mac with multiple Linux VMs. Sweet *nix everywhere!!!!
