    Geez, Frank. Have you no shame? Of all the people you could identify
    with and you choose him? ;)

    I vote democratic and don't believe in a god. I do believe in cause and
    effect. Do you?

    There is a reality that you linux lovers are simply not willing or are
    unable to accept and that is that linux is not a main stream business os
    capable of running most "real world" productive software. And please,
    don't tell me about wine or emulators. We've been thru diatribe with you
    guys many times before and nothing, absolutely nothing, has changed. You
    still can't run most major software applications on linux...period! The
    software applications most business need and use on a daily basis will
    not run on linux. Linux has some applications that are "almost" similar,
    but "almost" won't cut it in the "real" business world.
    Sorry!
    You may think in your mind that is will but in the "real" world (a place
    you don't seem to be a part of) it really doesn't run the type of
    software most (90+ %) of all business need to run in order to be productive.

    Now you may insert your snide, irrelevant reply that makes you feel good
    because it doesn't change a darn thing and deep inside you know it doesn't.

    Geez, norm, I'm only agreeing with his assessment.
    Which is so far correct.
    Is that a problem?

    Yes I was working on HP 3000, Data General 1200, and Univac 1108 systems
    with punch card readers.
    Also desiging hardware and software during that time.

    Interoperate with businesss software packages and do real work
    And no real change in the number of users. Several companys have offered
    systems with Linux and dropped it because nobody wanted it.
    Ya right. Grow up.

    No, it just means you became a geek.

    BTW, that is *not* meant as an insult. I consider myself a geek also.
    Anyone who actually installs OSes - as opposed to just getting one with
    a computer and having no idea what an "OS" is - is a geek.

    I've got Vista and 2 OS X versions on this computer, XP and OS X on
    another, and Vista, XP and OS X on a third - with OS/2, BeOS and Windows
    Server 2003 in VPC 2007 running under Vista. Plus a "real Mac" with a
    Power PC G4 CPU running OS X and - for when I want to laugh at a
    *really* primitive OS - MacOS 9.2.2. Pure geekdom!

    However, Linux still does not appeal to me. I simply have no use for
    it. I've had various Red Hat distros installed in VPC, but I never
    really did anything with them. Basically just looked at them and said
    "Meh. Big deal". I've tried installing "Ubuntu" in VPC but it
    doesn't work.

    Actually Frank we feel sorry for you, anyone with such delusions
    deserves sympathy rather than ridicule, however being an unsympathetic
    kinda person I shall repeat my assertion that you are in fact a looney.

    So far, i've only seen that you and ballmer think it is correct. Haven't
    heard from anyone else on the subject. ;) And I am not so sure that the
    comparison he made has any real substance other than his assessment that
    "free" equates to communism. I quote:
    Ballmer wanted "to emphasise the competitive threat, and in some senses
    the competitive opportunity, that Linux represents. Linux is a tough
    competitor. There's no company called Linux, there's barely a Linux road
    map. Yet Linux sort of springs organically from the earth. And it had,
    you know, the characteristics of communism that people love so very,
    very much about it. That is, it's free."
    If anything, the statement gives short shrift to both communism and
    linux. YMMV, and probably will. lol

    hehehe...then I'm in good company with Ballmer. I'll gladly accept that!
    Much better than that real nut case you open sores addicts worship, RS.

    Actually Charlie, the numbers prove exactly the opposite.
    And very strongly so.
    I'm right and you're the lunatic if you believe otherwise.
    Sorry...:)

  19. No problem, I think many picture you acting just like Ballmer does in
    the below video, only you act that way here in the newsgroup every
    day. Very revealing.
