I won't... So a linux server finally got hacked and it happens to be a
server doing duties for an American Senator...

On the face of it, it's horrible, deplorable... down right outrageous... 

Let's look at the numbers though...how many windows servers have been
hacked? Too many to count, in fact it's so common that no one hardly pay
attention... Christ, even MCIROSOFT hides their windows junk behind linux
servers... Must be a reason for that one...

Problems? What problems? Post some links so we can review what you post....

And Microsoft never did that? yeah... right... Personally, I LOVE the RSS
feed coming into this newsgroup. You don't? Then don't read it....

Good... I like it like that. Besides, the RSS feed you mentioned does well
enough for advocating Linux. There's really no need for wasting time
bashing window. It's a lot like kicking a dead dog.

Is that the BEST that you can do??

Go reboot your windows computer, run defrag, virus checker, registery
checker, worm checker, trojan checker and then reboot it again... Oh...
don't forget the patches and... have YOU run WGA yet????
