Default The real Window for Linux

Microsoft's current pricing just doesn't work with cheap hardware. If you have a $399 PC and $100 is Microsoft software that's 25 per cent of the total cost. Go down to $299 and Microsoft becomes 33 per cent of the total cost. At $199, it's 50 per cent. As I noted last week, the only way to work a five user licence through Microsoft is to incorporate. For a four user household, that's just silly, not to mention the overhead to manage license keys. Again, the Linux bigots need to start beating their chests louder on software licence management being a part of the total cost of ownership and overhead that a household shouldn't have to deal with.

Very good point.
