Re: Linux text editors are soooo slow

I dream of using Gnu/linux at work. However, In an email today I received from one of the IT bosses:
Finally, regarding OpenSource. I'm always interested in learning more as time permits. There has certainly always been (and is increasing) a push towards open source b/c it's cheap and even technically superior in some limited scopes. However, you can certainly appreciate the complexity and risk in adopting a technology that is not de-facto industry standard. I WOULD like to stay in touch with you to see how your projects are going and pull in your expertise should we ever set up an evaluation environment.
-Side note: this person was afraid of having Debian machines on the network and yet they use Microsoft Outlook/Exchange as their email server and IE is the default browser...

I think to win the desktop games will have to lead. With the rumour(?) that directX 10 will require vista, perhaps more gamers will wander the path of Cedega.
I agree that the Linux community should support the conversion process. I admire Sister's dedication and desire to renounce her evil M$ ways. However, I was a bit upset at how quick the M$ products were listed.
I've been using Cinelerra a bit more and it is a very nice video editor. The initial learning curve was a bit steep but it's well worth it.
