On Sept 25 I posted a comment on how Linux could be the new threat. Am I still of this opinion? Oh yeah! I am (still) utterly stunned at how good my netbook and my desktop server with GUI executes. Linux and Ubuntu might finally have cracked that nut.
I have even found that GNumeric is quite a bit better for financial calculations that Excel. GNumeric is a real statistical and financial engine. Impressive. Now if I could only get GNumeric to talk to my .NET application.
