blogs.techrepublic.com: This week, it seems like everyone is writing about how Windows 7 spells the demise of Linux (or not) or, alternatively, how Linux has contributed to the decline of Microsoft. I figure we’ve got several weeks left to kick them around, though, don’t you? So with that in mind, I found some practical resources to highlight.
