Mission critical systems should run only the best. Kudos to NASA for using  Linux instead of Windows. 
 
Cool. NASA is using Red Hat Enterprise Linux to launch (Launch Control Center, Firing Room 1) missions into deep space. Full pics http://imgur.com/a/n8vbu  via reddit thread.

+Ovi Chis Hopefully more and more businesses will see the light and migrate away from Windows. Windows is not only useless, it's also costly.

[Goodbye Windows XP]

Attention please!

In short, if you're 'still' running Windows XP (for whatever reason), please be advised, as per Microsoft, that system will soon be DEAD and no longer supported.

Long version?
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enterprise/endofsupport.aspx

[What to do?]

~ Choice A ~
Keep Paying for Microsoft and use their Software (Windows 7 or Windows 8) and suffer from tons of problems:
1- Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)
2- Slowness
3- Viruses, Spywares, etc
4- Non-Stable system (breakable often)
5- Not Secure (any beginner hacker can hack it)
6- Do I really have to carry on?

~ Choice B ~
Keep Calm and Switch to Linux!

Why?
1- Super Fast (you don't need to upgrade your hardware - have 512MB RAM? no problem!)
2- Super Secure (NASA, Google, Facebook, etc ... are using Linux on their Servers for a reason)
3- Super Stable (install it once, you don't ever need to format it)
4- Full Freedom (you have many User Interfaces, Programs, etc)
5- Highly Customizable
6- You do NOT need any Anti-Virus Program (Linux system structure is different and no command to be executed without the user's permission)
7- No more browsing the internet to install any application, you can do that within your system without visiting any website.
8- Free and Open Source Operating System
9- Community Based and World Wide Supported (there are so many people can help you with zero cost)
10- Can always enjoy the very latest software (system and/or programs) - unlike Windows XP, it is more than 12 years old now
11- Linux is being used to backup/save files of broken Windows PC/Laptop
12- Unlike what many people think, it is very and I mean VERY easy to use

Do I have to carry on?

You need more information?
Let us know!

Your choice, no one will force you to use anything :)

Thank you!

P.S.
If your office are still running Windows XP, your friends, someone you know, etc ... please pass this message through :)

Hugo Chavez got his wish. He was Dictator for life. It was just a little shorter than he expected...

Obama went AWOL during the 7 hour attack on Benghazi. No wonder he didn't want to answer any questions about it.

Why would the US Department of Defence choose an OS as insecure as Windows for it's main OS. They could have used open source software for a fraction of the price with the added benefit of more security. Steve Balmer must be laughing with this latest $617 million contract.   #linux   #microsoft

+Ken Starks Yes, you do have to wonder, especially with the military facing massive budget cuts in the next few years. Who knows what the real reason was for this choice but I doubt that everyone in the DoD needs the latest and greatest features of Office 2013.

►Immigration  - 
 
Marco Rubio says one thing in Spanish and another thing in Englsih regarding the Immigration bill. He made it clear in a Spanish speaking interview that legalization comes first and securing the border comes second. Glenn Back is right. Rubio is a dirtbag.

Google has no Easter doodle for Easter Sunday. Decides to honor a commie union activist instead. #Easter

Communist Party official smashes the airline computers after missing his flight while security looks on. His wife also gets in on the act. The political elite are untouchable in China.

Michelle Malkin nails it here on illegal immigration. Amnesty will only beget more amnesty and further expand the welfare state.

Rooms are pretty basic and they can use more bench space as well as a closet. Staff are friendly. Otherwise, good value for money.
