There has been a fair bit of agreement with my post 42: The Church should be moving away from Windows in preparation for the late arrival of Windows Vista. See
- This OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: Spending Your Money on Something Important was updated.
- Good for everyone according to Bertrand’s weblog: The Church should be moving away from Windows…. (via Planet Apache)
- Good for athiests as well according to Anarchaia: A tumblelog by Christian Neukirchen.
One of the trends that I have been following and supporting for a long while is the move to web based applications. These of course make our operating systems far less significant and are a key reason why it is easier than ever to switch to Linux from Windows.
Not just windows either. See The Best Mac OS Is Ubuntu via Linux Today – WebProNews: The Best Mac OS Is Ubuntu.
Of course if Churches want to take the suggestion at small ritual: accept salvation, get wifi to provide Wifi networks (and coffee) then Linux is obviously the best way to go (via Why churches should offer wireless internet � The Cartoon Blog by Dave Walker)
Open-Source Advocates: Microsoft’s Development Model Is Failing is a relevant and interesting article, more about licenses than code.
