the ill effects of 6 month Linux distribution releases.
"For years, Microsoft thrived on just such a strategy, adding features to Windows as though they were going out of style and not caring about anything apart from marketshare.
From 1995 onwards, the name of the product reflected the fact that the company's expertise lay more in marketing than technology - Windows 3.1 in 1990 was followed by Windows 95.
What has been the end result? Windows is a widespread but highly insecure and buggy operating system which everyone is forced to use simply because it has become some kind of de facto standard.
I fear that GNU/Linux - or at least some distributions - is following in its wake.
