So you're turning it on!

Mujo and Janez got a job to chop wood. First day, Janez got fifteen timbers down, Mujo did just three. Second day, Janez got twenty-two down, Mujo five. Third day, Mujo sneaks out behind Janez to see how does he do it. Janez just takes a stroll down to the place where he worked the day before, gathers some wood, lights a little fire, makes a coffee, has a breakfast with it, cleans up his dishes, packs them back, takes his chainsaw, turns the engine on... and then Mujo jumps out of the bush: - So you're turning it on!

Ever been in a situation when you had to write a long workaround - and then later saw a straightforward and simple way to do it? All it takes is knowing how to turn it on. :)

A thought and No Linux in Life

Text taken from the mentioned link, Well said Mary Jo Foley.

Microsoft Linux!: Microsoft could have and should have done its own version of Linux. It could have bought a Linux distro vendor or just christened some branch of Windows (with some Unix-compatibility add-ons) as Microsoft Linux. By doing this, Microsoft could have thrown a real monkey wrench into Linux companies' plans. Instead, Microsoft continues to spend lots of money, time and attention fighting open-source software on a whole host of fronts. They should have joined the camp, rather than obsessing on beating them.,1995,1977870,00.asp?kc=MWRSS02129TX1K0000535
