dedoimedo.com: All your friends and business partners run Microsoft Office and you cannot afford to have any blunders when reading their documents. Likewise, you don't want to have your presentations all garbled up when you import them from Impress to PowerPoint. What about Office 2007? What about macros in your Excel sheets?
ghacks.net: Often, when I ask why users don’t adopt Linux, I am met with the response “There are no CAD (Computer Aided Design) applications.

junauza.com: Instead of bashing Microsoft for deliberately spreading several great lies about Linux, I'm going to write something useful that I hope will benefit those who are planning to buy a netbook.
linuxjournal.com: Having your Linux distribution suddenly disappear from the internet would put a strain on anyone.
