Linux and start using it, they instantly define you as a

for geeks and weirdos because you are a geek and weirdo

The one thing you Linux lusers fail to comprehend is that
it's just an OS. It's the APPLICATIONS that count.
Windows has the ones people want, pda,
[quote] For people who are interested in installing Linux on
PDAs or buying a PDA with Linux pre-installed, here are a
few pages that might help you find what you're looking for.
Information about installing Linux on PDAs/Palmtops
* Linux Palmtop Page - A guide to installing Linux on
* handhelds.org - website dedicated to information and
promotion of open source technology for hand-held devices.
* LinuxDevices.com - definitive guide to PDAs that either
come with embedded Linux or PDAs whose developers are
actively involved in porting Linux to their devices.
Linux powered PDAs
* Sharp page dedicated to the Zaurus and aimed at developers
As usual, due to your extremely low intelligence you
completely miss the point. It's the APPLICATIONS and not the
OS. People want applications that allow them to synch their
PDA, iPod, cell-phone, etc with their desktop.
So what links to you post???? A bunch of non-sequitor
Another insulting ad hominem rant from a Microsoft sycophant;
nothing but a sick, wicked individual, to post such tripe.
<SNIP usual troll shite>
So once again, you show that you have no idea at all of what
common computer users want. They want to synch their
pda/mp3/phone with their desktop and the "advocate solution"
is to give them a bunch of links to where they can develop
their own PDA software.
More ad hominem insults, intended to get an angry reaction, in
response to a reply to a known anti-Linux troll. This troll has
an inability to participate in the discussion, instead attacking
the poster. This is contrary to the purpose of this newsgroup:
1.4 The Charter of comp.os.linux.advocacy
The charter of comp.os.linux.advocacy is:
For discussion of the benefits of Linux compared to other
That single sentence is the one and only charter of the
newsgroup comp.os.linux.advocacy. The newsgroup's charter is for
the newsgroup as a place for supporters of Linux to gather to
discuss Linux, for the betterment of the Linux community and the
promotion and development of Linux. It supports this as a place
for those who would like to learn more about Linux to come to
learn from those who know Linux. It does not call for it to be a
place where the anti-Linux propagandists to gather in order to
