Re: [vox] word processing software (was: visio on linux)

stating factual informaiton from my personal point of view.

The main point of my statements in this thread, were to

to Microsoft's OS and Office offerings, nothing more or

In case my integrity is still challenged...

I worked for GDS (Global Distribution Center for HP) for
the last two years. Once HP accepted Linux as a strategic
OS (along with windows and HPUX) we shipped 90% linux
servers and 10% linux desktops. The volume of transactions
that I was personally involved with was in the around
45,000 boxes in 45 countries. (I feel that this volume is
at least a representitive sample of the market, and so my
opinion should be considered) Even if 50% of all the
desktops sold were converted to Linux after the purchase,
the majority is not linux. Hence my personal opinion, which
you are welcome to disagree with.
