15 Bloggers Telling you Why Linux is Better

3 05 2008

Link ini aku dapat dari http://www.linuxhaxor.net. Ada salah satu artikel menarik jang judulnya sama dengan judulnya postingku kali ini “15 Bloggers Telling you Why Linux is Better”. belum sempat kujelajahi ke 15 blog ini. Aku coba2 buka http://www.whylinuxisbetter.net, ada poin2 menarik yang bisa kita klik.

Kmudian ada satu yang menurutku menarik yakni “Help other countries, and your own”. Apa maksudnya, baca dibawah ini nih :

Microsoft is an USA company, and its success is great for the American economy.

But if you don’t live in the USA, when you buy propietary software (eg Windows), about a half of the money goes directly to the software company’s HQ (eg Microsoft’s): that money leaves your country, while the other half stays in (sales commissions, etc.: no technical benefits). Your country is not producing anything, and you don’t even need qualified people to sell boxes. That leads to IT professionals with no high level knowledge who only install and configure proprietary software without the option of modifying/learning/customizing it.

With Free Software (eg Linux), the economy (and IT professionals’ knowledge) of your country could improve, since there could be a lot of small/medium companies customizing solutions, providing support, consulting, etc.

People who know how to do things and retain money in your country will benefit from it, rather than people who just sell boxes with a predefined sales pitch, sending your money offshore, leaving IT professionals without real knowledge about how things work.

Nah lo….baca tuh baca…..

Review blog lain ntar menyusul….
