Your comment on Vista

Shock admission:

MS admits that they use Ubuntu Linux on all
their HQ servers and desktops.

But then, MS, or in full, Mark Shuttleworth would, wouldn't he? :-)

re: New show?

Hey there, Goblin.

Sorry for the long delay  but last week, after doing the Wednesday newscast, I decided that with the US celebrating their Thanksgiving, that there would only be so much interest in a new WFTL Bytes! As you can tell, there's a new one up there now and another will appear tomorrow (Wednesday). Stay tuned and thanks for watching (and keeping me honest) [ insert appropriate smiley here ].

Hi Marcel, Hope alls well in

Hi Marcel,
Hope alls well in the WFTL bytes household!

I would be interested (in a future show) for your take on Mono.

To me Mono "Sponsored by Novell" has warning signals all over it. We all are aware of the famous MS deal, and I doubt very much Novell will go against MS again (due to it caving in to patent power before) So why would MS allow Novell to sponsor Mono, unless there is some other plan at work here.

Like I say, Id love to hear your take on it. I find your opinions well balanced and it would be interesting to hear from somebody who is "more in the know" than I am.

Kind regards

Goblin.
