    I plan to keep XP as long as I can. After all, I did pay for and I like
    it. I will learn Ubuntu and it will take me some time as I am not a
    techie like you. I do have a friend who was dealing with Unix probably
    before you were born and when he gets back from the States, we will be
    looking at a number of Linux OSes for our own use and for his clients' use.

    So, you can stop your "Ubuntu awaits you" crap.

  3. Your friend was a Unix techie back before 1953? wow.. so all this talk of
    people trying out Ubuntu on your recommendation is phooey as you have no
    idea how to work with it yourself?

    Your credibility is fair running away from you.. I remember Unix/AIX well
    from my days as an RS/6000 engineer.. Ubuntu wasn't around way back then..
    maybe you were not either..

    Yep. IE7's being total crap is everyone else's fault but
    Micro$oft's.
    That's funny. Micro$oft calling some else's software
    invasive.

    If you don't like Internet Explorer 7, and want to go back to IE6,
    go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
    Find Windows Internet Explorer 7, highlight it, and click "Remove".
    That will take you back to IE6. The roll-back process worked
    for me, for which I am grateful to Microsoft.

    True. Because everything is everyone else's fault.

    More and more, Microsoft is starting to remind me of a bunch
    of drunks...

    - They're arrogant.
    - They blame the problems they create on everyone else.
    - They can't fix their problem, because they won't admit they have a
    problem.
    - They think they know everything, even though things under their
    control are in disarray.
    - They go to lots of meetings, but when they come out, they're still
    screwed up.

    If they can make up a 12 step program for people who shop too
    much, I'm sure they can come up with one for those who pray to the
    Northwest.

  6. HP admitted to the problem, and I was the person who called HP printer
    support software invasive..

    OK, when you were a teen ager. I said I showed it to people, not that
    they were trying it out. They liked what they say and them, like me, are
    not techies. Got it now?
    No $hit.
    I've been around longer than you have. I am not, nor ever claimed to be,
    a computer tech. or engineer. My friend is one. The person who has
    offered to help me with Ubuntu next week is not my friend but someone I
    met on these newsgroups.

  8. It's not getting any better for you..

    You showed people an operating system about which you know zero, and they
    liked what they saw.. well, I saw and liked the new style Greyhound bus, but
    I am not about to start driving one..

    Your friend's time spent with Unix is completely irrelevant to any topic in
    here, and your associate, met in a newsgroup, is going to need more than
    'Ubuntu Week' to show you the Linux ropes..

    You have posted a link to a site that criticizes MS re. innovations, and how
    MS acquired other stuff.. MS never claim to be inventors, but they are
    innovators, and have brought together enough stuff and given it a good
    polishing such that people like you can get into a computer and do something
    half meaningful. And what were your remarks on the posted site? That MS
    stole a whole bunch of stuff? Read the wording on the website, and you will
    see that they legitimately acquired stuff, either by buying or agreeing
    rights. Many companies do this. It is a shortcut to getting technology or a
    product that will enhance the range already offered. If you do a bit of
    surfing, you will find that the competing Office Suites did exactly the
    same, but with way less style.

    So how do you see your credibility rating?

    People like me come here to try to help people get a better computing
    experience from MS products. We all do it voluntarily. Much as people like
    you try to thwart us, many leave here with their problems fixed. Of course,
    there will always be those that can't be helped for one reason or another.

    Re. IE7, I have installed it in a few computers now, and have had no problem
    so doing. Yes, the look has changed, and No, it is not too customizable, but
    it is a very capable browser and will become everything and more than ever
    IE6 was. One has to remember that when IE6 was intro'd, there were more than
    a few pages that wouldn't resolve because the pages had been coded to look
    exclusively for IE5. Some complained that there was nothing much new and how
    come it looked like the old one. Others griped about not having enough
    viewing space, and no tabs like FF. IE7 has the features that people wanted,
    but there are some who are just never happy, and have to try to find fault.

    MS is not perfect, but they do try and have succeeded where others haven't.
    If Steve Jobs had the business acumen of Bill Gates, you would no doubt be
    taking shots at Mac stuff, but history tells another story.If you are going
    to come here, at least try to be helpful. I ask this not for myself, but the
    those who come here for help in using IE, be it whatever version.

    And before you suggest that I may be losing self control (never yet seen by
    anybody), ensure that you are not about to lose yours.

    the problem.
