- About Us
I'm sure * I am * a Linux fan, probably because I'm a computer expert. But<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... I confess I've tried to use Linux in my home office before with no success. I confess Linux wasn't mature enough for non-technical users. I simply couldn't prepare proposals, spreadsheets and presentations as I would like to. I tried to use Netscape mail reader to manage my contacts and I got a mess! I didn't have a decent schedule/calendar application to help me with my daily tasks.
Recently I tryed again. Now using Ximian Desktop 2 I have almost everything I need for my daily tasks. There are still some lacks: (1) my home banking doesn't work well inside Mozilla; (2) some websites uses non-standard, IE-dependent instructions, so it's difficult to surf sometimes and (3) there's still a serious gap related M$ Project file format.
In spite of these problems, I'm able to work as productive as I was working one week ago.
That's why I dont believe McNutt have hidden interests on Linux. Simply because now it works well enough and have mature enough office productivity tools.
