You are laughable.

Open Internet Explorer and enter a non-existent ftp server, try to open ftp:/127.0.0.1:26 for example, now try to close Internet Explorer.

You can't, it freezes and the only way to kill it is using task manager.

I believe that bug is in there for about 15 years right now with the only difference that I can kill iexplore.exe under NT - 2000 - XP where I used to get a blue screen of dead within 95-98-ME.

You were saying something about frozen browsers? I never have that problem within GNOME.

Adding fonts under linux? It's easier! I can do it with one single command!

About Open Office, I don't like to pay 900 bucks for a new office version just because of a new installer and some more eyecandy in the menubars and no extra functionality at all. If you like to do that and have money enough be my guest.

I just entered that FTP address into IE6 in W2K and guess what, it didn't crash or freeze at all. Maybe you are laughable because your computer is crap.
