        There is not a right way to pronounce LaTeX. For more
        information, see this book: "LaTeX: A Document Preparation
        System" by Leslie Lamport. There you can find a chapter
        called "The Game of the Name" which explains some facts.

1. Betting on Unix

With my last 1 year experience with NT, i am completely pissed off.

IMHO, NT is a badly designed bull shit.

Now i am more than ever convinced on the future of Unix.

I predict   INTEL would be the hardware standard.
And Linux/FreeBsd would be the software standard.

Now my question is:
If that is the way the world goes, What are all the companies who would
be benefited by the raise of Linux/FreeBsd as software standard.

       Let's not predict the future by looking into rear view mirror.
