It is an attention-grabbing headline for a post, isn't it? Here's the original, on Microsoft's Channel 9 forums.
We can argue all day long about the technical superiority of Windows versus Macintosh vs UNIX/Linux but, when all is said in done, if they won't use it, there is no reason for us to support it.
Apple Macintosh and Linux users will have one less excuse to pay the taxman when development gets underway on an improved e-tax application compatible with any computer system.Commissioner of Taxation Michael D'Ascenzo announced yesterday the plan to make the eight-year-old application, which allows taxpayers to file their tax returns via the Internet, more widely available to computer users.

The latest release, version 18.104.22.168 includes security fixes, and promises to address some of the long-standing memory leaks that have been a source of concern for many users. Based on my admittedly brief use of the new version, memory consumption seems to be about the same as with the previous version.

comment A headline like that is bound to draw the ire of the Macintosh faithful. But might an operating system like Linux possibly spell trouble for Apple?
commentary A headline like that is bound to draw the ire of the Macintosh faithful. After all, since Microsoft, which can marshal its forces and target competitors at will with lethal precision, hasn't finished-off Apple after all these years (and I'm not saying that this was necessarily a Redmond goal), how on earth can an operating system like Linux spell trouble for Apple?
Sophos' anti-virus chief, Jan Hruska, says the race to perfect "on-access" virus scanning technology for desktop versions of Linux and FreeBSD has the company's Unix developers "tearing their hair out". The development of on-access scanning for Unix would give Linux users the same the type of technology that protects Windows and Macintosh users when they inadvertently double-click or otherwise attempt to open files infected with viruses such as those bundled into some e-mail attachments.
Sun's Linux desktop offerings have about 30% of German office productivity market compared to 7% worldwide.
Ximian, a small Boston company pushing use of the Linux operating system on ordinary desktop computers, is offering discounts to try to woo Microsoft customers dissatisfied with a more expensive licensing plan from the software titan. As of May, about two-thirds of Microsoft's customers haven't signed up for a program to offer a subscription-like product update service. The sign-up deadline is July 31. Ximian is offering discounts of up to 25 percent on software such as its Evolution for checking e-mail, its Connector software for integrating Evolution with Microsoft Exchange e-mail systems, and Sun Microsystems' StarOffice 6 suite of programs for tasks such as word processing. Many of these products are bundled with product support and online updates in a package called Ximian Desktop Professional Edition, which runs on versions of Linux from Red Hat, SuSE and MandrakeSoft. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
On June 24, German Linux seller SuSE will begin offering Pro-Office CD, a $24.95 product that includes Sun Microsystems' StarOffice 6 as well Linux software updates and version 3.0.1 of the KDE graphical interface, the company said Monday. Sun charges Linux sellers a fee to ship version 6 of StarOffice, much less than the $76 it charges retail customers but still more than the free version 5.2. Sun's pricing practices led Red Hat, the top seller of the Linux operating system, to stop including StarOffice. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
A test version of OpenOffice, the open-source brother of Sun Microsystems' StarOffice software and a competitor to Microsoft Office, now can be downloaded, project organizers said Tuesday. The version, an alpha test version intended for programmers, requires the XFree86 graphical interface software and uses an installer from ZeroG Software. Other versions of OpenOffice run on Linux, Windows and Sun's Solaris. Open-source software is collectively developed by a group of people who freely share the program's underlying source code. By contrast, the source code of proprietary software from companies such as Microsoft is typically kept a tightly guarded secret. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
