    Linux ... It's everywhere???

    Who else but JerryP would know about this???

    At 20, Linux is invisible, ubiquitous - CNN.com


    Nothing a little bourbon and soda wouldn't fix.

    Most of your Web sites run on Linux servers; you have GPS units, OnStar Mobile, and others running on top of Linux variants. It is in more places than you think...

    Let me rephrase that...

    Who else but JerryP and Spazntwitch would know about this?

    It's funny that you say that. My web hosting is Linux based, but I'm contemplating moving to a Windows based hosting so I can mess around with SQL Server.

    It's a marvel what you can do with just a little WINE How to run SQL Server on Linux | SQLServerPedia

    Windows offers no WINE or anything "free" (like free beer).

    The calculator app is free. Don't you think that is worth some kudos to Microsoft?

    Actually though, I'm running SQL Server Express 2008 for free and Visual Web Developer Express 2010 for free (and legally too) on my Virtual Dedicated Server on GoDaddy. Microsoft seems to be getting better about offering free versions of their stuff. These items will work great for my purposes.

    I was thinking flagitious, but sure, nefarious works too.

    Don't forget solitaire. I understand that that is the only reason people use Windows.

    Dr. Preco, I hold a license to practice on Uranus.

    Anyone seen my pen?

    You have something against Linus? What has he ever done to you?

    Love both (when maybe not Linus' religious affiliations) but Linus is "off topic" (I think)
