There are some better quotes that apply a bit better I think.

Now I have been pondering on this, Is it realy that bad? Think about it. The Net would be split into 2.

one side essintially owned by Microsoft
one still free and open.

All the linux servers out there will not run out and all the sudden by this version of windows or upgrade their hardware. IBM has no love for Microsoft, nor dose Sun Microsystems. Right there are 2 harware vendors that just may come out with a hardware solution.

Software alternatives are already inplace. The way I see it, you would have a corperate net under Microsoft... And a net were open source projects and such can flourish. Might even be better...

Do you realy think Apple servers will all the sudden be replace by these Microsoft/P.C. ones? How about other platforms?

Spark stations
Alpha
Apple
http://www.transmeta.com

All of these platforms are still compatable with each other on the net... So word documents will not be able to transfer on the free net. So we use the new standard for the free net.

This could actualy be a chance for some companies to sell a cheaper product with more freedom. I mean when Micrsoft starts deleting out MP3's and porn these other OS's and platforms will have a new found intrest in them.

Now maybe I'm playing Devil's advocate here. I mean just yesterday I was going to start a boycot. But I can easily see 2 nets, and no Microcrooks on te free net.

Yea I saw that post. He was said one of our for fathers (I forget which one.)

That was the quote he was referring to. It's just if you are going to quote someone... Do it right. Not necessarily a flame on you man. Just a pet peeve of mine.

hey learner, that had a big impack on me... i was thinking the same, microdick can suck other peoples ass and go their own way while we could stay on the free net and support it, help, and not bitch about. MS could fuck us temp but i think we could live through it and help build and support the free net. We dont need them (althou i do like and use alot of their apps and oses).

that would be awesome, creating a new internet i doubt it will even be slow this is the chance every company who tried to sue microsoft has been waiting for if they help pay for a more linux/mac dominated internet many will switch from windows if microsoft's plan works who knows if enough people switch Microsoft may even go out of buisness course Bill Gates still comes out on top im sure he has a few billion tucked away. Then again theres always the possiblity they dont get the OS into the market and things stay the same

so either way, if things stay the same it would b nice but if shit changes then we all get rid of microsoft and scooter down the free/open internet and live happy and support it and say fuck u M$ and get supporters and fuck MS over and live happily ever after. Either way... id b a adventure if the OS goes to market.

Well, honestly, I don't think it will happen. I mean, it's possible, but highly unlikely. Not enough people would agree with it. All the Unix/Linux servers out there would work fine. People would switch over rather than paying a ton of money. It's just pretty unlikely. It would suck the big one if it happened. But I don't think we have too much to worry about.

i think home users less experienced than us would highly not switch to another OS, I used to love windows and i still do but i think i can handle the change but bussinuess people like my uncle and other fmaily and friends would probably not switch... but they can upgrade and live with the shit, Im not. I think there will b alot of people that will probably switch but i think the majority of them will stay with M$. I was raised on windows.. it would b a challenge for me to switch.
