Microsoft periodically shuffles around what it thinks to be its biggest 'threat'. Right now, it's apparently open source. Yesterday, it was Google.
I disagree. Microsoft's biggest threat is itself. Particularly the higher-ups (here's looking at you, Steve...) for their refusal to embrace the open source community, rather than spouting FUD and lies.
"Potential. That's the single reason I would recommend Drupal over wordpress (or movable type, etc).
Of course, there are all the other reasons mentioned in this thread: crappy wordpress community support, centralization of third-party modules, active development, cutting edge tech... those are all good reasons too."

Pulling out a much newer 80 GB drive, also a Seagate, I decided to test the new Kubuntu 6.06.1.
After burning a CD, and rearranging the computer's contents to boot from CD, and then running the built-in CD verification, the machine started a live session.
A recent news article caught my attention. It touts the friendliness of Linspire (formerly Lindows until Microsoft decided it didn't want anybody elbowing in on it's generic product names). There are a number of things wrong with this article, and a number of issues it brings up.
