    From the article, even Wall Street doesn't like him:

    "Some on Wall Street have been calling for his head for years. Since
    Ballmer took the reins as CEO from Bill Gates in 2000, Microsoft's stock
    has been nearly cut in half. Despite this year's strong financial
    performance and impressive sales of Windows 7, Office 2010 and cloud
    products for corporate customers, Microsoft's stock has gotten hammered,
    falling 20%."

    How long before MS is history?

    It's time to check out Linux, folks. I recommend Linux Mint. Get it free

    I used to laugh at such suggestions however when presented with a spare
    computer and much spare time I gave Linux a try. I ended up with Ubuntu
    but that isn't the important point.

    I was surprised at how easily I downloaded it (free), installed it
    (fast, and no secret serial numbers), and immediately installed
    Thunderbird (my favorite email software).

    Pushing a few keys brought me a load of suggested updates, and then I
    was actually doing some useful computer work.

    I then pointed it to many of my older windows created documents and was
    able to open and use them.

    Don't be afraid to give linux a try, the worst would be that you later
    deleted it. It won't cost you a dime to find out.

    I even loaded it on a different old computer as a second booting option
    (Win 2000 was primary) and ven that worked well.

    I learn something new every day, if I keep my eyes open.

    That's probably all the most-reasonable of the Linux community
    want.

    Or anything for that matter.

    Don't let anyone make up your mind about anything...not matter
    how many times they preach/put down solution A or preach/putdown
    solution B.

    If you try out (whatever) for yourself, give it an honest shot,
    then your opinion means something and it counts.

    You won't know it will you, because you'll be in your coffin and dirt
    will be covering you.

    Do you think so? Clown I knew what "that long" meant in the context of
    your stupid little comeback reply.

    But the dirt won't be flying over your head. It will be lading on your
    head as they lay you to rest, and MS is going to be here long after
    you're dust in your grave. The sooner you go, you won't be missed.

    Threatening people with death on the Internet is a crime. You've been
    reported to the appropriate authorities. You might want to bone up on
    what "triangulating" means.

    Like they give a shit about you, you have a bad day. It's wishful
    thinking that someome will care about some Broke Back Mountain
    pussy-fussings by some fag in Spain. :) You think too much of
    yourself and the internet.
