    Interesting first time in my life I have seen someone say Hotmail uses
    Windows because it works for them. Hotmail uses Windows because they are
    hosted by Microsoft and no other reason. As for the guy saying everyone is
    gravitating to BSD for servers. Acctually their not these days all the big
    companies are going towards AIX servers. Now for the whole start of this
    arguement I have ran *nix for many years. There is no competition when it
    comes to a general market OS. Windows is the only option at this time for
    standard PC's OS X is nice but it still doesnt run as well as Windows does.
    And lastly as far as Vista being an ME all over you have to be nutz right.

    And "real work" being?
    Companies ... companies. I like it better than XP or Vista I am somebody.
    No sense of humor, eh? I guess you've been doing too much "real work".

    I don't vote in Spain as I am not a Spanish citizen (I have residency
    due to being married to a Spanish lady). I vote in the US presidential
    elections and vote democratic. Although there is a very small communist
    party in Spain, I wouldn't vote for them if I could vote here.

    So, that just leaves you god to go on about.

    I don't even know who RS is, much less worship him or her.

    Oops.

    There he is, right on schedule! At least he didn't try to deny the
    numbers.
    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.

    So, you think that Ubuntu is no good yet you've never installed it. Or,
    should I say, couldn't install it. Try using a spare hard disk and then
    get back to me on what you think of it. Unlike Vista, you can try Ubuntu
    out for free. Just be sure you install Feisty Fawn, aka ver. 7.04.

    And the real work is? And the software programs are?

    You'll have to tell me what "real work" is first.

    No, I didn't say that. I can't install it because I have no HD space.

    I played with the live CD, booting it on this laptop. It didn't
    recognize the wifi adapter. It was ugly.

    Install it and configure the appearance to your taste. Then go to the
    Ubuntu forums to find out how to configure your WiFi.

    And after all of that I'll still just end up with.......another Linux
    install.

    No thanks. Don't need it, I already have OS X for my geeky *nix needs.
    OS X is better right now than Linux will ever be because it has, you
    know, professional programmers/designers working on it. People who
    actually understand UI design.

    Head. Sand. You've never tried Ubuntu because you're biased.

    End of dialog.

    Head. Ass.

    Get over it. You're just upset because someone doesn't like your
    favorite OS.

    I *have* tried it. I just was not impressed. Just like *you* are not
    impressed with Vista. The difference is I'm not whining because you
    don't like Vista. Unlike you, I have no emotional attachment to
    software. Vista is not "a cause" to me.

    The other difference is I'm not trolling the Linux groups preaching
    Vista to Linux users.

    It's becoming quite evident by your postings that you're really not all
    that bright.
    In fact, you're postings define you as being rather stupid, mr genius.
