Google doesn't use Linux for their products? Are you really trying to claim that? No, Stallman (and others using the GPL for their code) say, "Here, take this code and change it however...
After takin' a swig o' grog, billwg belched out this bit o' wisdom:
You're talking about companies such as Hewlett-Packard, SGI, IBM, AutoZone, Novell, Daimler-Chrysler, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Google, I take it?
No comparison. At all.
Yeah, you went out on a limb, and it broke on you.
No. I go to openoffice.org, firefox.com, gnu.org, gnome.org, kde.org, intel.com,
What I find incredible is that you seem to believe your petty and erroneous disparagement have any merit whatsoever, even as devices of ridicule.
Some of the ideas you have about Free software and open source are so outdated as to be worthy of ridicule.

These companies may use linux instead of unix for their server needs, I will agree, but the issue was...
For work, our official products are Visual Studio .NET (but we don't use the .NET stuff, and I make sure the libraries also compile with gcc), Qt (you know, the open-source product, free for non-commercial use, but we pay $1300-seat for it), MS SQL-Server with ODBC, and Borland C++ Builder.
But, if it were up to me, I'd go with gtk+, gcc-g++, mysql (our database needs aren't heavy), and makefiles.
However, billwg, even if my work forced me to use nothing but MS products, it would not support your argument one wit. The work-universe is much larger than you or I.
You're very impressionable. That's why you hew to Microsoft marketing.
-- I love the smell of code compiling in the morning. It smells like... Freedom.
