Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

What? You mean that going to the Ubuntist Temple is a bad thing and that I shouldn't burn at the stake every Windows user I see and drink their blood? *rolleyes*

C'mon, gimme a break. We're talking about two Operating Systems remember? It's not a religion, it's a bunch of people who do their best to help other people. They're not a professional support service; Canonical would be more than happy to give you professional support by charging a fee.

So please cut them some slack, they're just trying to help.

BTW, I'm modding you up above zero.

Stake-burning and blood-drinking is simply not enough.

For a start, this infection is contagious. You should never drink the un-sterilised blood of a Windows enthusiast, better still, carry around a stick of enriched uranium to irradiate any Windows-related biomatter before contact.

Secondly, if you think that burning is enough to kill these monsters, then you are responsible for letting many of them walk-free. They should be approached at midnight on a full mood, stabbed in the heart with a silver stake, then their severed head should be mounted on the walls of the Ubuntist temple for all to see.

I wasn't referring to Canonical as the community, i meant the unreasonable and immature ppl that fill the various forums with anti-windows-user hate.

Thanks but no need for that, it is what it is!

Me neither. I meant that, even with its problems, the community does its best to help and you shouldn't expect a top-notch, professional, support service from them. That's what Canonical is there for. Sorry if it was unclear or I didn't get your point, english isn't my native tongue and sometimes I screw up.

I'm afraid that you will find those all over the internet, no matter if it's an Ubuntu, Windows or Mac forum. I've read jewels like "I had to recompile the Linux kernel just to change my screen resolution to 1024x768" even here at OSNews. I'll never understand how something cold and dull as a bunch of code can heat up discussions so much ;)

Thanks but no need for that, it is what it is!


But it's wrong. If I don't agree I just say it, as I actually did. Modding down without valid reasons is just plain childish.
