    Microsoft and its daughter company Accenture are to cut 7,000 Jobs worldwide and replace them with cheap chinese work force.





    Way to go, microfackts!

    Dear graphical companies! You pay our money to Microsoft and resist on feature parity to other OSes. You support that actions. Thank you AMD! Thank you Nvidia! Much love!

    Actually it is thriving quite well and has had a good inrush of new adopters lately.

    But hey, it is far more dramatic to make a Henny Penny comment isn't it?

    (we have heard this all before when Novell purchased SuSE, the same "the sky is falling" comments were made then)

    I've been running openSuse with Tumbleweed and been quite happy. Now running the 2.6.38.4 kernel with KDE 4.6.2. Aside from a couple freezes everything's working fine.

    Been a long long long time member of SuSE/openSUSE as well, that's why I find all these "the world is ending" type comments amusing having seen them again and again over the years.

    Would you prefer they fire everyone and rely on "the community" for programming?
