Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

I'm a Microsoft refugee. I also once or twice installed updates and had a panic; my Windows would not boot! I've also compiled a kernel on Linux, and learned that an update can undo your custom compile,yes it's true! I had to repair my "free as in beer" OS! Linux isn't error free, it does have security updates every few days instead of one Tuesday a month. Another problem I'm having with Linux is that I can't seem to find my Linux Genuine Advantage Validation Key!
