Linux is still the same
I think there's some ambiguity here however, we are talking "Microsoft"
which supplies all manner of things to a vast market Vs. "Other
Operating Systems" so comparisons are not direct.
I mean for example MS sell all manner of things that are not software or
even remotely OS related, Apple less so but still varied and one could
argue even less related, so there's no clear way for anyone to win this
debate, in fact it's largely a pointless debate.
My point was 1. Naturally MS make more profit than a non profit... and
profit / turnover can be misleading for many reasons, even without the
differences mentioned above. 2. That just because people are buying
something now does not mean it is any good. People "Buy" all kinds of
software, a lot of which is no good.
That is not to suggest I am claiming Vista or anything else is no good,
only that figures such as those quoted in the current debate don't
really mean a lot, one way or the other.
