Escape from (or just avoid) Microsoft

I've been using computers since 1977. But somehow I never became dependent on Microsoft Windows, nor any other proprietary operating system. It was always obvious to me that open systems just met my needs better.

Through the years I've tried to show my friends and colleagues how open systems often met their needs better, too. This made me a commentator on the Microsoft monopoly, and how to avoid or escape it. But my writing has been scattered across dozens of newsgroups and mailing lists. Recently folks are bugging me to collect it in a weblog. That's what this blog will be about. I hope it's a perspective you haven't seen before. I hope you find it useful.
