I guess I am one of those people that are willing to buy it. I work in the corporate environment and 98% of my PC, the IT department hates. I run W2K and that is not the corporate standard. But I do production work and win2k is much more stable than 9x or NT. Yes, I could throw them a wrench and run Linux and then install WINE on top of that and then place a request for more ram cause I am developing in both Linux and Windows. Yeah, I am one of the people that has paid the $99.00 for the software. No activation, install it on a bunch of my PCs and yes, I can install my Office XP CD and it installs just fine. Of course, there are a few bugs in the OS, but hasn’t every OS from MS had bugs as well? XP is the most stable offering from MS to date. I do agree on that. But look at the price of it. And if you want to install it on 2 different PCs, go buy 2 copies. I have installed Lindows on 5 different configurations so far and it still only cost me the intial 99 bucks. And 70 percent of the users in the corporate environment never change anything on their PC, heck, they still call wallpaper a nice screensaver. Do you have any idea how much a corporate site license cost these days from MS? More than some of you make in a few months. And I’m sure that if Lindows gets rave reviews, a lot of you that are complaining about it may find a copy somewhere and install it. You may end up liking it. You may switch to it all together. Oh yeah, a lot of the DLLs needed for windows-based programs to run on Linux/Unix can be downloaded from many a developers web sites. Source code for windows is a different thing.
