Microsoft Sometimes, the sheer size of a company like Microsoft can make it quite hard to see and realise just how large and profitable such a company can really be. In these kinds of situations, there's nothing like a clear graph to make all those pretty numbers tangible. Up to a point.

I like how you take offense to rockwell's oneliners but say nothing when lemur posts his usual 500 word snake oil salesmen pitch for FOSS.

Actually, lemur's posts do annoy me quite often, since they are filled with inaccuracies and are sometimes obnoxious. However, lemur's posts are not at all offensive. lemur doesn't go around calling people, basically, retards, for believing in something.

Pretty much all rockwell does is call people "freetards" and post links to LHB. Personally, if I were an admin, he would be banned.

Struck a nerve, didn't I? The truth hurts.

Linux belongs on servers. On the desktop it is an utter mess of a failure. You would have to be "retarded" (look up the term in a dictionary, it's far from offensive) to think otherwise. Thus the term "free-tard" or "freetard."

Stop me if this is over your head. Millions agree with me, and I do my best to post the truth on this bastion of freetardia that is OS News.

Lol! Yeah, right!

You really are a barrel of laughs, rockwell. The way you label anybody who doesn't agree with you a "freetard" really shows off your debating skills as well as your maturity. Not being able to qualify your statements has never been portrayed with quite your level of childishness. Well done!

Now run along. Like I said last time, we adults want to have a real conversation.

Desktop Linux doesn't belong on servers. I have Arch Linux running KDE SC 4.4, which is current desktop software, and it is a far better desktop system (running on the identical hardware) than any version of Windows.
