Hi Ashley,

I agree with Nathan about poor arguments based on the same method of  
group Linux and open source software in the one basket. The comments  
are based around Linux on the desktop, but there are already many  
open source products being actively used on the desktops, and this is  
what will bring about the change from Microsoft domination in the  
desktop market.
