lobby4linux goes live

Filed under

Linux is on a collision course with success, and that success is measured by every new Linux Desktop User we gain. Join us in our effort to make Linux the obvious choice for millions of desktop users.

Linux is at a crucial point in could be called the perfect storm of opportunity and circumstance. Microsoft is floundering with their next generation operating system, codename Longhorn. With the cost of hardware plummeting, the retail price of Windows XP, and with additional anti-virus and firewall software factored in; the cost can equal over a third of the total computer investment. That is ridiculous!

Linux has a Golden Opportunity here and we need to take advantage of it. There are only a few things holding Linux back from gaining a substantial share of the desktop market. This website is devoted to concentrating on the most important factor in this equation- software.

For example, we still lack a good all-around accounting program for business...a GPL program. For the want of one or two software programs of this nature, people remain chained to Microsoft Windows. is going to make every effort to change this. We do not have much time to do it. We need your help and participation.
