Article from Issue 65/2006

Dear Linux Magazine Reader,

We’ve begun a new survey to get input from our readers on topics to cover in the coming year. If you have a minute, pay a visit to to let us know your interests. We'll donate US$ 5 to the Free Software Foundation for each completed survey.

In the meantime, while we wait for these results to roll in, I decided to do a little fact finding of my own. Have you ever wondered what you would find if you clicked on one of those “Get the Facts” links? Microsoft’s “Get the Facts” campaign is where they supposedly make their case about how they are better than Linux. Most Linux users never click that link. No Linux user wants another Linux user to sneak up on them while they are visiting the “Get the Facts” site.
