What a difference a day makes, as the old saying goes -- or, perhaps more aptly here in the Linux community, what a difference an app makes. Which app, you may ask? Why that would be Microsoft Office for Android, of course -- the arrival of which a few weeks ago has caused no shortage of jubilation in the Linux blogosphere. "The father of Linux, Linus Torvalds, once said, 'if Microsoft ever does applications for Linux it means I've won,'" noted a recent article. "So, it looks like Linus has won."

When I was at a very large medical practice--'organization' would be a better word-- (hospitals, clinics, imaging centers, completely paperless, entire autonomous specialist medical practices) the other day, I took a look at the exam-room's computer splash screen when the doctor left the room. I'm certain this organization didn't get as big as it is without a coherent IT strategy. The splash screen?:

Microsoft Windows XP.

It's not so much that Linus and Linux have won.

It's that Microsoft has lost.

How do you feel about Black Friday/Cyber Monday this year?
I'm excited to find great deals and plan to do some serious shopping on BFCM.
I'll watch for BFCM sales, but I intend to drastically curb my spending this year.
BFCM has become a season -- I no longer feel driven to look for bargains on those specific days.
I plan to have most of my holiday shopping done *before* BFCM.
I detest the holiday sales hype and will avoid shopping on BFCM.
