Ruben, you know I'm a big Linux supporter.
And let me say this ... it's people like you who hurt "our" side.
#1. The guy only cares about Windows. He said that. Did you read what
someone wrote the other day on this list about how to ask and answer
questions. Automatically spewing "Use Linux" everytime somebody posts a
Windows question does nothing. It pisses people off. Hell, it pisses
*me* off, and I'm a Linux user!
#2. Spreading lies does nothing except hurt "our" side. Windows will NOT
turn off in a few months if you don't pay. THAT IS A LIE. It's not just
a lie, it's a silly lie. My report, which I referenced, discusses the
same issues, but without resorting to lies. Lies piss people off. Hell,
your lie pisses *me* off, and I'm a Linux user!
If you can't add something constructive, please, don't bother. You're
just hurting the greater cause of something I care about: Linux.
