    Windows ... Outperforms Linux
    Did make me giggle


    But on the other the more serious side, I wounder how many of those research companies they are reffering to, and their papers are objective. There's no end to what you can buy..

    Methinks Bill is getting a little worried. Hence the propaganda.

    So much talk recently of Oracle strengthening itself with Linux as a business solution has probably contributed. I wonder how many large corporations have been making the switch from Windoze to Linux?

    I'm sure those reports are 100% valid...those research companies have their reputations on the line. Just goes to show that for the right dollar amount, the figures can be manipulated to say anything!

    Sure it it true, I've never crashed a computer faster in linux than in windows

    Everything is a question of: Som man frågar får man svar
    (translates rougthly to "they way you ask the way you get answer", ie if you ask with a leading question you're likley to get an answer you like, I'm sure they bought those 'analysis', from some corp that wanted to make some easy money)

    I wonder, did they benchmark a 33MHz 80386 running linux v.1 to the latest P4? (they wont use AMD, since they're allies with intel)

    Thats because msSQL is now a big threat to Oracle since it out peforms it.

    Ever heard of Necronomicon (or Necrowombicon - if you read megatokyo (stip 96))
    I think he has that book... Luckily Tux is unaffected by spells of 3v1l...

    (source: http://www.mtfn.net/faqpage.asp?sec=3)
    49. Necrowombicon:

    Book of supernaturally-derived spells currently owned by Miho; supposed spawn of the recent Daikatana fiasco. First received mention in the Penny Arcade strip (non-manga). Item is a spoof on the Necronomicon (book of the dead; bound in human flesh) first discussed by H. P. Lovecraft and made famous in Evil Dead 1 & 2 and of Army of Darkness movies.
    (Evil Dead 1 & 2 = Windows 95 & 98, Army of Darkness = M$ Office et al)
