Re: Return Economics html trivial debate
If this is the word:
"What everyone who opposes MS needs to know is that there are
serious and viable computing alternatives to all of MS's products.
If you're still using MS products slavishly, you're as much a part
of the problem as the solution.
"We need to have a digital Boston Tea Party!!"
"This is where I am too. The consumer must be told that there are
choices (plural). They must be told that the choices are ALL better
alternatives than M$-stuff -- right down the line."
Then what about this:
A huge hurdle is to hold the hand of those who would
use alternative software if they were not afraid to make
the change. Such hand-holding is most often not practical.
Even using mostly MS pre-loaded and downloaded stuff,
and some from NS and others, the futz factor for non-gurus
is monstrous and scary. I rely on gurus far too often to
bring this mother back up. I've been "into" computers and
amateur programming for decades. But futzing on your own
in today's desktop world requires gifts and experience few
users have. You can throw a tea party -- but who will come?

by automation and saving -- not by high interest,
high unemployment and high taxes.
