What is “digital pity” exactly? It’s a place that will host commentary for statements like this: “There are several people who have asked me about how Linux compares to Longhorn. I have decided to answer those questions here.”
I have to pity people that can make sweeping declarations for technology that is yet available – and probably won’t be for at least 18-24 months or more – because it defies all logic.
And then to follow such a bold statement with this whopper: “First I must say I doubt Longhorn will ever ship, I believe we will see Microsoft Linux before we see Longhorn.” Sigh…
Given that the person that has spouted such insight hates Microsoft and loves Linux, what exactly would happen if Microsoft released a flavor of Linux? Aneurism, no doubt.
