    RE: Linux Market Share Passes 1%!!
    yes, exchange. and ms office. when a user gets a ms word 07 document, you either must have word 07 or a reader. that leads less-thinking (most) businesses to purchase ms office. when office 2010 comes out, then the herd of lemmings will follow whoever buys it first and likewise plunge into the sea, thus keeping up with the joneses. open office, anyone?

    RE: Linux Market Share Passes 1%!!
    i suspect much more than 1% lots of articles in the past year on this or that government or agency adopting linux. lots of us loading linux on friends' former-windows machines (as they have no licensed copy of windows...) and, on what else besides debian does one run network security tools? ok, that's too narrow... and (i know this is hard to believe) some ppl are actually tired of malware on their pc and would switch if one of us hinted at it... so, yeah, way more than 1%.

    RE: Why do you love Debian?
    it's stable unless you allow kernel updates and that craps-out your wireless. but nothing that a good deal of searching the internet and advice from good ppl at another forum couldn't fix. after a couple of days. :P not to mention the learning curve on the way in with wireless. :P thank goodness for wicd. however, with so much invested in it, i've grown fond of it, and hence it stays on the laptop. ;) :)

    RE: Do we ever question Linux?
    bit torrent is horrible or wonderful, depending on qty of seeded machines. bit torrent is ok if several ppl give up cpu & bandwidth. but ftp on a cluster of servers with adequate bandwidth works just as well i do not believe the bit torrent [i][b]protocol[/b][/i] is any more efficient than ftp. perhaps i'm wrong on that. case studies anyone?

    [b]standardization is the key to success[/b] - ethernet - pc - wide-open implementation of various (hardware) standards - linux file locations (sorry, changing that structure won't make a better os.) - the look and feel of the standard menu bar everyone knows file = save, save as, print whether windows or linux what causes loss in standardization is the years it may take to come to a standard, or a vendor jumping the gun and creating a pseudo-standard, incompatible with anything else. w/o standardization, mine won't talk to yours. there is no basis for trade (gallon, liter, euro, dollar) nor communication (what language we agree to use) etc.
