Shun Linux and kiss your job security good-bye

Given some of the comments in this forum, I am sure this post will cover a few keyboards with spurted coffee.

From Shun Linux and kiss your job security good-bye, part 1

"IT managers who think that their Microsoft certifications give them all the tenure they need are in for a rude awakening. In fact, says author Robin Miller, their pink slips are only a point-and-click away. Learn to use Linux, he said, or you'll be left behind."
...
"The smart IT managers are into Linux. If they're not, then in many companies, they'll eventually get replaced by ones who are. It's simple. Learn about Linux or get left behind."

Now the first thing the anti-Linux pro-Microsoft brigade is likely to do is to attack either myself or the the author of the above comments or both: ad hominem. Then they will ignore the content of the post and bring out the same unsubstantiated FUD and follow with the same line of logical fallacies. Just as they did in with my resent post:
Linux on the Desktop at work and worth it
http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=5&threadID=165827&start=0
It is possible and worthwile to integrate Linux desktops into a Microsoft and Mac using organization, and it is getting easier to do so.

Despite all the lies from Microsoft and its "zealots", Linux is now Mainstream in the data center and is going to take a similar slice of the business desktop market over the next few years.

For the majority, a career in IT is going to be dependent on the ability to work with and integrate technology on Linux, Microsoft and other vendors platforms and software.

Just attacking Linux with FUD is a failed and wasted strategy and is just damaging the reputation of Microsoft.

It's not his obligation to

by Oz_Media In reply to nice language...

In fact TR has decided to make it a popular topic on the home page.

Judging by the number of replies, it is something many want to discuss. You obviously don't YAWN.

So the trick to TR is, if you don't like it, don't click it. Then you aren't compelled to post nothing, like YAWN in reply.

Problem solved.

Unless of course you feel it is someone's job to post entertaining discussions that you would like to post to. If not, get a better idea and post it yourself. YAWN.

One of our biggest issues on TR, is the posting of "garbage" and pointless comments like those left by 'Marcus' recently. You've made some intelligent contributions in the past, so don't flood our discussions with that crap. PLEASE.

I must have been in a crappy mood. Don't listen to me. :)

I was thrown back a bit by the fact that the discussion is linked from the homepage. Anyone who visits the discussion directly from the main page will see nothing but "yawn". This does not really promote the discussion, but maybe it's better off dead anyways. It's boring the **** out of me too.

Hot Topic

by cloverthepoet In reply to *** YAWN ****

TR emailed me the link to this topic. I would not have read this or be any where near TR if not for the email to this YARN fest. You sir, are retarded.
