Re: Prior knowledge

I couldn't let the last post to be from Matt.. it isn't fair.. he appears to be so anti-IBM.. and IBM really tried hard to embrace Itanium:

"As part of Project Monterey, IBM released a beta test version of AIX 5L for the IA-64 (Itanium) architecture in 2001, but this never became an official product due to lack of interest." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_AIX)

GNOME hacker: Culture isn't holding desktop Linux back

Paris Hilton

it's simple

Gnome,GTK,LXDE, XFCE, KDE && other interfaces I've only seen on screenshots [and I don't use].. ordinary users simply don't care. You want to get some traction with ordinary users? Aside the nice comments from the author look at Apple's direction [again I don't use -for other reasons].. nice Aqua GUI on Unix..which again the ordinary users don't realize (as they view it as a singular product) and even they did, they don't care.. Oh, and ordinary users are more or less like clones of Paris Hilton.. If you are comfortable creating something she'll like, you will succeed..

I understand that Mr Stallman is still pissed off because linux is not prefixed by gnu, but it's over. He was right, but it's over.

What I'd like to see is a "famous" ...AS/400-iSeries (or whatever!!!) guy come out and argue that Mr no-manners has exerted 'vitriolic influence' on computing!!! Because as we all know the whole computing paradigm should be RPG/ABAP/-screen based!!!!

It would be a hilarious dogfight to watch!!!

**Yes I know you can run C# under Mono at a Suse LPAR on i and this interfacing a federated Oracle running of course on a ws2008 communicating with a...... but C# ??? ...ooops Mr Stall-mann hates that as well!!!
