The NY Times Supports Linux(?)

Dave Aiello wrote, "What's this? The New York Times ran an editorial advocating the use of Linux? I know people are going to think I'm crazy, but, I think they made a mistake: they should also have encouraged people to buy MacOS X-based computers."

"From a programming perspective, Linux and OS X are very similar. The user experience on the Macintosh, however, is arguably better with such niceties as DVD support. It could be a while before you can play a DVD or reliably read any Microsoft Office document on a Linux machine. Yet, you can do this today on a Mac."
