    That's what, sooner or later, you will get if you keep running Windows.

    Was in PC world yesterday and noticed that most of the new PCs were turned
    off. The few that were running were displaying scrolling ads instead of
    Vista. There were no customers in that section, and no sales staff either. Is
    that because they aren't selling any, I wonder?

    Another point to ponder is that the supposedly healthy Vista sales figures
    almost certainly include OEM copies, but of course no-one knows for certain
    how many of these OEM disks get formatted the moment the PC comes out the
    box. It's possible the actual usage figures are lower. Much lower.

    So your computer running xp is constantly infected?
    Is that correct?

  6. It's also possible that the usage stats are higher because of the Chinese.

    Now if you read the article, you will notice that the company, PatchLink
    provides solutions to companies who want NETWORK security solutions.
    PatchLink polled 250 of them. Now, in the network world where Linux has a
    higher presence of users than in the home market, the number THINKING of
    migrating to Linux is about 8%, or maybe 20 companies. Not surprising for

    Yes, I know that the subject of this thread was geared towards Business, but
    most users here are HOME users. It is natural that business explore the
    possibility of migration to a non Windows solution. Whoppte-do.

    If the home user has issues with Vista being slow, crashing, not running
    their software, fixes will be coming, or they can migrate back to XP. But
    they certainly don't want Ubuntu or Linux. Bad choice for most. Reason
    being is they want something that they can work with right away. Ubuntu has
    a steep learning curve that most don't want to deal with. Bottom line,
    Ubuntu is for Geeks who have lots of time on their hands and want to tiker
    with toys.

    Just another posting by the Ubuntu Marketing Department (Alias) to try and
    scare the visitors the the group to think about

    Why would they want a TOY OS to play with when they can use Vista or even XP
    to get real work done?

    Of course not. I only use it for gaming. When I use the Internet, I
    don't use Windows, you moron!

    A tehc friend of mine has been installing Ubuntu on HOME computers, one
    a day, for the last month. He can't keep up!
    Yeah, in the form of paying more for hardware.
    Um, you don't speak for anyone but yourself.
    LOL! MS is the KING of FUD and you are one of the fanboys that laps it
    right up.
    Ubuntu is not a Toy OS, of course!

    To email me, remove what's invalid

    Just wondering, what makes it a 'toy' will only run on a Speak 'n

    Advanced video editing hasn't really arrived to Linux, nor has gaming.
    For everything else, emailing, Internet surfing, faxing, printing, etc.,
    Ubuntu is great.

    So your Windows XP computer is not constantly infected with malware and
    viruses like you're constantly preaching about?
    If that's correct then that proves you are a liar...just as I've been
    saying all along.
    We have never, ever been infected by malware or viruses while being on
    line constantly while using only Windows applications for well over a

    The constant lies and FUD you chose to spread in this ng point to the
    fact that you have much larger issues than simply some brand of software.
    Of course you'll deny it but that's apart of the sickness isn't it?
    We are all now very much aware of your sickness as you try to infect us
    with it numerous times on a daily basis.
    Get some professional help.
    We all know you need it!

    It's a great toy and you're nothing but a lying FUD spreading moron!

    Not what I said. Read it again, this time with your reading glasses on.
    Being as it isn't correct ...
    The people who do admit that they get viruses are paying attention. Live
    with it.

    I make a lot of money with the "toy".
    The only people who "know" that are fanboys like you who are too stoopid
    to be able to install Ubuntu and who bluster all over the place, lying
    and insulting anyone logical and reasonable like a deranged orangutan.

    So you have proved my point. A TOY Operating System just for geeks. I have
    heard that with the OpenSores software you can even write words down,
    numbers down and even draw primative pictures. NO advanced video editing,
    no real gaming. But you can surf, print, and check email. Boy, my old
    Windows 98/ME pile can do those things.

    When you go out to your prospective Ubuntu clients, make sure you tell them
    about what you confessed to us here. Maybe the Marketing Division of Ubuntu
    should rethink its strategy.

    Emailing, Internet surfing, faxing, printing, etc is just for geeks?
    Since when?

    I have
    Try to find a new computer that will run Win 9x. Also, those toy OSs had
    to be rebooted constantly due to resource loss. Defragging was a real
    joy too.
    I do tell them and those few who do video editing are encouraged to do a
    dual boot with XP until the video editing programmers get with the new
    OS that will wipe Windows right off the map.

    I said that Ubuntu is for geeks. Of course they can fax, surf, and print.

    Any new computer will run Windows 9x. You may not want to put it on a new
    computer, but it will run. Reboot - OK so what. Defrag? Yes it's a pain
    but less of a pain than Ubuntu.
    Who wants to dual boot to use a TOY OS? Get real. People don't want to
    dual boot just to pay with Ubuntu - Get real.

    So what you are saying is you have no reasons for that other than seemingly
    than Frank calls it a toy OS.
