An Open Letter to a Digital World: Time to Switch to Linux

Chris Spencer posted an interesting open letter to LinuxWorld a couple of days ago, and it’s worth circulating to those a bit outside of the Linux world.

“Spencer had become so fed up with spyware, trojans, viruses, and spam, that he decided it was time to write a letter to the world. It’s a simple message: it’s time to switch from Windows to Linux. The letter serves as a guide … taking you through some of the history of Microsoft right up to this present day.”

If you are interested at all in understanding the benefits of the Linux environment, and don’t mind a bit of the technical, be sure to check out Spencer’s message.

    Hi Alec,

    I work for a school board in Ontario that doesn’t seem to ‘get it’ when it comes to Open Source Software.

    I work with a teacher consultant that ‘hooked’ me on Linux. We are now working with the K12 Linux Terminal Server Project. I know of a school in Toronto using several machines with LTSP.

    Perhaps we can share some information, anecdotes etc on OSS and Linux in Education. Please feel free to email me.
