To the people who want to boycott Microsoft and let the CEO know here is his direct email

ceooff@microsoft.com

I put it in the thread but I looked and it was way down. His secretary gave it to me. Please flood his email with your decision to boycott if you are going to do so.

And this is Bill Gates: billg@microsoft.com

See this post - Microsoft is threatening the Obama administration that is will send workers overseas if the tax hikes go through.

11. I just put the latest version of Kubuntu Linux on my machine.

I'm rapidly running out of things that Windows can do that Linux can't.

Netflix? Works now. http://www.iheartubuntu.com/2012/11/ppa-for-netflix-desktop-app.html

Games? Valve's beta-testing Steam, and we'll be seeing a bunch of high-quality Linux games.

My machine is noticeably snappier running Linux than Windows.

15. Yea but you can NOT buy one in the future. Everyone has to buy a new computer in the future

18. I don't see that Apple has any moral high ground over MS.

And as for all those other oddball OS's out there, I have as little desire to learn them as I do to learn esperantu.

17. So the tax never succeeded before. Now it is going to. He needs to shape up anyway.

His secretary was very happy to talk to me and happy to give me his email address after I explained why I was calling.

14. Well,

I own a MacBook and an iPhone. My Windows based laptop is basically a bookend now.

Doesn't matter to me.
