    What ever happened to the Professor and his bet about Ubuntu vs MS?

    As the year wraps up, just wondering whatever happened to professor fate and his bet with his friend about Ubuntu vs Microsoft. That was one of the more popular threads at the time before it was closed. Just looking to see if anyone knows what happened, who won the bet, who payed, etc?

    I don't know.

    The professor requested to close the thread and gave this link as the place for updates:
    http://thebetison-ubuntu-microsoft.blogspot.com/

    I don't see any updates there, though.

    His last activity on these forums were November 18th. He never updated his blog which was made after the thread was closed. Hes made no effort to resolve this, and that in itself is an answer.

    With the demeanor he had in the first place, and the ungodly bet that was in no way fair to reason, hes back on Vista now as we speak. You cant force one to like an OS, especially if it isnt there thing.

    He moved on to Windows.

    But don't you find it weird that after all that activity, the professor wouldn't put even one blog post up to say "Hey, I won the bet and am still using Vista"?
