Maybe I should have posted this in Tech Humour? anyways the anoraks are at it again................I bet they all ride Lambrettas
or use the interwebz just to get those blue pills?
As far as I am aware, users in most parts of the World are free to chose whatever software they want, and they seem to have done so?
"By translating Windows 7 Sins into as many languages as possible, we are making this an international campaign for computer user freedom," said FSF campaign manager Matt Lee.
"caveat emptor" (let the buyer beware)............you don't have to buy proprietary products, it's just that most people chose to do so.
"Vox Populi, Vox Dei"..............the voice of the people is the voice of God...........and the people have spoken.
I just cannot believe that the majority of corporate and institutional users Worldwide actually chose proprietary software because they enjoy paying for it? They must have other very good reasons?
If anyone is going to dent Microsoft it will be the Cubans and South Americans. Check out "Nova Linux" (Cuba) and "Red Star Linux" (Argentina).
The Chinese would like to try, but are really not that good.........I have "Red Flag Linux SP1" and "Kylin Linux", but they are really nothing more than regular distros translated into Chinese. The first two are a much more serious attempt to build a friendly GUI (provided you understand Spanish)
If it ever happens, it will be politics that will do the job, not a shower of whining anoraks IMO.

If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
