Hi people,Every one who uses computer would be knowing about the cold war between open source people and the microsoft monopoly. Whom do you support?Open source crew or the Microsoft people. I support both for their technical expertise. What is your opinion?

Exactly. Since it is free from virus it is better and safer to use open source for internet. All the web based companies use open source for their servers because of this reason.

Well, not all. I believe MS server technology is popular in quite a few places (look for .asp pages). although many do use a LAMP setup.

Open source software have a major advantage that a majority of users contribute during their development.It is not a work of a few people who want to make software according to their needs.It is a net result of thousands of innovations made by us. I certainly believe that soon open source software will take over paid software and it will be good for the software industry.

Of course of companies it is the best operating system because of its virus free environment. When it comes to personal computer experience, I feel we need to learn the open source operating system which is not necessary in windows. The user friendliness is more in microsoft's product and it is not in open source.

Yeah I support both of the two parties. I do request latest Ubuntu operating system in their website and wait for it to be receive by me. I use window operating system professional service pack 2 as main operating system in my computer. It is not original and it is torrent downloaded.
