Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

no more Microsoft software


Is it possible to live without IE, Office, etc? Of course it is. But is it possible for me?

It seemed not. When I installed Mozilla (pre 1.0) I kept clicking on the button for IE and never gave Mozilla much of a second look.

But why? I knew it was just inertia. Well, screw it. Now I have installed Mozilla 1.0 and I'm determined to try to switch. I have just switched the default browser for the OS. I will soon get an alternative Office (e.g., OpenOffice) and replace the rest of the tools. Eventually, the OS should go too right? Well, maybe not. Some for my research requires Win32 development, and so far the best solution for that is Visual Studio.

Let's see if I can live with a monopoly-free machine.
