Microsoft is making it easier and easier to go to Linux full time
While I understand that things change, I should be allowed to keep things the same. Microsoft use to have backward compatability. I am not a fan of Windows 7 and Office 2010 with tabs, and now that Windows 8 is going to be that much different, to heck with them all. I will buy my next box based off of Linux, though not sure which flavor. Linux Mint is very Windows like, so that will make my wife happy. Since Microsoft seems to decide for me how I should operate a computer, I will choose to spend my money elsewhere. In today's day and age, I am not for techni-communism like Apple or Microsoft. Being dictated to is NOT ok. Luckily, there are choices aplenty. In honor of talk Like a Pirate Day, "Hang them from the highest yard arm!!!!"
