Open source company in "Pissing and moaning that microsoft don't compete with one arm tied behind their back" shocker.
Here's an idea: How about, rather than spending all of this time and effort draging them down, the ODF Foundation work on improving their product so it becomes a defacto choice on merit?
I know. ridiculous ideas are ridiculous.
Are you mentaly retarded, or just like trolling Microsoft posts with completely irrelevant trash?
I for one look forward to the swathe of Spurious class action lawsuits this creates, as it's another excuse to laugh at people with no crip on reality what so ever.
Care to explain why it is Illegal to Shut down a free version of software that says "Not for Production Use - I shut down on Day X" ?
Please stop using the internet. Forever.
There is a simple reason why people are not recompiling it for speed, and why it's bloating out of all proportion.
Linux used to be for the pro's. You spent months fighting with a command line to get X compiled only to blow your monitor up when you mis-typed the H & V Sync. You had to manually recompile your kernel to add / remove things to make it work. You ahd to know your shit.
Then Ubuntu came along to make "Linux for everyone". Unfortunately, linux for everyone removed all of the technical challenges form the install, It is lowering the IQ of the collective Linux Userbase. Face it. 90% of the "OMG LINUX ROX!!!11!!" commentards are Ubuntu users wo run it for 3 months, feel superior, then quietly limp back too Linux.
Real Linux users know it bloats, and have been recomiling their kernels for years. It's a non-issue. However it's a massive fail for "Desktop Ez-Mode Linux" as you end up falling into the traps that dog your "most Hated OS in the World".
Welcome to your bed. You made it. You sleep in it.
@Russ: You are wrong i'm afraid. BSD uses a modular kernel. Linux is Monolithic. It loads the whole damn lot.
This think you describe of as "BBQ'ing" with an enclosed fire box is some ridiculous easy-convenience version of making food out doors. I'm guessing your BBQ has to be left at home when you go travelling as it's gas supply is rather too heavy to take on holiday?
Men cook on Open fires - and improvise. Enclosed boxes are for the ladies.
I feel sorry for your daughter being brought into this world with such narrow minded and plain wrong information being shipped into her head.
Please explain how, shipping an OS on a ROM is going to help anyone. What do you do when you want to update the version of Chrome on ChromeOS ? Or how about a new kernel that adds support for that new Periphial you always wanted to use?
I Fail to see how this is going to achieve anything. The netbook market is Tiny, around 10mil units. if they get 50% of that (doubtful) then well done, you have provided 5million Netbooks, globally, with a free OS. How much money did that make you?
Then, once you have established yourself as a loss leader in a minority market, you expect other people to do the rest of the work for you by developing an app store, posting the relevant API documents on the web and then sitting back, patting yourselves on the back?
ps. ROM doesn't mean no virus by design. It means limited attack vectors. You are still vulnerable to TSR's. Sure, you can cold-boot the system between tasks, but that gets a bit tedious.
Unfortunately, the main facebook page doesn't render with Firefox 3.5 on Vista64.
Having 2 pages of .js and .css errors is pretty spectacular.

It works fine in IE8 though.
