Seven Reasons Microsoft Loves Open Source (by William Hurley)

Next week I’m leading the “Open Source, the Web, Interoperability, and Microsoft” panel at Mix07 in Vegas, my first Microsoft conference. Naturally, I’ve been pondering the topic so I don’t end up on stage with my pants around my ankles.

Linux Distribution Sucks-Rules-O-Meter

This site makes a graph with system performance with some distributions, as well, this guys have a lot of other graphics like Operating System Sucks-Rules-O-Meter.

Well.. in the Linux Distribution Sucks-Rules-O-Meter we have some interesting results.

The idea of this site is:
  • screen scrape distrowatch
  • select "major" distributions using completely arbitrary methods
  • query altavista with "sucks" and "rules" or "rocks" and the distribution name
  • graph the results

Funny and interesting idea.
