    Did i said that business world should return to command line ? I wasn't
    under that impression.

    Do the interface of OpenOffice and MS Office looks THAT different to you
    ? Hell no. These secretaries are formed to work on an interface, and
    changing a few things in that same interface will not as you think,
    bring the business word to a crawl. To the reverse, it will make them
    more proefficient at computer usage, as any human does become better
    when having to deal with different interfaces / systems. It will make
    them curious about the new software, capabilities and changes. It voids
    the 'One way of thinking' that vendors try to impose.
    Nowadays it is perfectly possible to have 'workers' use a free desktop,
    100 % compatible with all M$ formats, at lower costs, performing better
    ( real multitasking ), and with real stability and not prone to virii.
    So why isn't it happening ?
    Yes Unix expertise and tuition is expensive, but if all ur software
    licenses costs and other support contracts license money was going to
    your own Nix expert employe, who uses free software, not only would you
    save money, but you will be more secure too.

    Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
