Large number of what?  Maybe you need to think before replying.  Large
number of desktop users?? Servers??  What market are you talking about.  For
sure MS has conquered the desktop market, but that does not mean that you
can't make money in the *NIX world and also does not mean that Linux is not
and will not catch up.  I personally perfer the stability of the open source
software over buggy MS sh$#, but again that's my preference.

Being an international mailing list I won't even reply to this nonsense,
this it's already getting OT for the other's to join in and make this thread
about as long as the schamas, schemata thread.

>We must simplify things so everyone has access.

Right let's just have one application (sort of what is called a monopoly)
and make everyone use it, sort of like MS.  That will definitelly simplify
things, on your side.
