So the mainstream press is conspiring with Microsoft? Damn!  You might
consider that with the press and media and even the Bush administration
all conspiring to help Mr. Softee put down the OSS revolution, you
might be up the creek!  Better pick a better line of endeavor, eh?

Well I did ask.  How else are you going to learn?  Even so, I think it
just goes to show how easy it is to use Windows.

Roy boy had a cite this morning from some guy that went on for days
with the same kind of message.  He said that people are not inclined to
search for change if they don't have a problem and Microsoft MOL makes
sure that few have to search for anything.  That was the key to their
success in the past and their continued dominance today.  That would
make linux a solution in search of a problem, don't you think?

Some few posts ago, wasn't it you who was saying that you make the "big
bucks" by showing people how to straighten up and fly right?  I don't
think that I said anything like that, although I might have.
