links for 2011-04-20: Who should(n't) by an iPad 2; Oracle gives up on OpenOffice

  1. 1.) I am not a blind fan. :-) I can actually see that all other products are crap. While tutoring someone recently on Linux use, I realized that it has been a long time since Bill Joy gave us BSD (and vi btw) and windows is still so very far behind. How is it a company that makes billions per month, can't compare with one guy in grad school? iPad - brilliant, all others - not. The best comparison would be if today you had a choice between a nice new 2011 SL500 or a 1982 K Car with both being the same price. That's about the difference.
    2.) Oracle gives up? I wish I knew the inside story. Now I hope the LibreOffice crew know what to do next and how to pull in other biggies to help the cause. Freedom!
