Linux

Recently, an article appeared on CoolTechZone.com entitled: “Is It Wrong To Love Microsoft?” While we will give the author full credit for enthusiasm and loyalty to The Microsoft Corporation, his writing was more an emotional statement than a learning tool. This type of rhetoric is rampant within the Linux and Microsoft Camps. While not a scientific or academic work, we at Lobby4Linux would like to make some clear statements concerning the use of Linux and Microsoft operating systems. This is not an “answer” to the above-mentioned author. It is simply a well timed release of an article written over the past few days. “Is It Wrong To Love Microsoft” was published at an opportune time for us.

First things first. I have been accused of being “anti-Microsoft”. I am not. I am anti-poor quality products. Microsoft is responsible for some of the most brilliant and useful software in existence. They are also responsible for some of the most insecure and dangerous software in existence.

You need to know what your options are and the majority of you are not aware you have options. I am happy to tell you that you do.

If it’s free, how can it be any good?

Still running 32 bit Ubuntu?

I’m considering a proposal to have 16.04 LTS be the last release of Ubuntu with 32 bit images to run on 32 bit only machines (on x86 aka Intel/AMD only – this has no bearing on ARM). You would still be able to run 32 bit applications on 64 bit Ubuntu. Read more
