mo gnu tco

found yet another rather good article about tco reduction when choosing linux at //ibm. yes, i am in making bizz cases for switching ;-)

while we are mentioning linux and ibm, their new commercial absolutely rocks, see //does he have a name"?.
note that they dont have any m$ windows media listed, though //this site does...?

the //transcript is good too: "Res publica non dominetur"

wheel the mainframes out of there

via /. but real funny; howto //steal some mainframes with confidential information on it.

willy thinks: lets watch ebay for some time...

(black) out windows

if //this is true, every IT manager for a plant should get a linux distro or a bullit, either way bite it! cause if the black out was really due to a bad product and a bad sysop, redmond is in *real* trouble, SOBIG.f trouble it will MSBLAST them right out of the business... (wishfull thinking)

cygwin, power to the desktop

gimpwhy o why.. why didnt i do this before. i installed //cygwin on my windows desktop, added some libs and have the power of linux on my work pc (yes, it is dual boot but i *need* m$ for my work, dont ask..). that was one step towards CLI power. than I read //using remote apps from cygwin and started using X from my small pentium 199 webserver/dns/firewall/databaseserver/dhcp server/etc..

now i can use //the best draw prog from my linux box on my wifi powered laptop, having a good load on both systems! why didnt i do this before, now i can use my X stuff from my laptop as well. xbill! all legal, all GPLicenced software (except my laptop OS Smiling ) without too much trouble.

ibm, a difficult relationship...

pinkroccade apeldoornmy employer has got a difficult relationship with ibm. we meet them in every single rfp we answer, yet we are a big customer and preffered reseller. i think imb sais it best when saying:

IBM has a complex relation with PinkRoccade. For example,the two companies also work together with the PinkRoccade marketing units. They collaborate to interest specific professions in the infrastructure that MegaplexPinkRoccade Infrastructure Services has in house,combined with the system development a marketing unit can offer. IBM and PinkRoccade also compete with one another on a regular basis [...]

willy wont: blog a lot 'bout his employer. too complex and too political.
