Getting desperate Roy?

Vista is looming on the horizon Roy and for Linux users, especially
desktop users, it's not a welcome sight.

So who else are trolls going to reply to?
And most of the people in here are not trolls anyhow.
They are just people who in many cases use both Linux and Windows and are
simply here to filter out the total bullshit and lies that the Linux
advocates spew.

IOW to bring some reality to this group.

Rex is a sharp person, but at the same time he is one of COLA's biggest
Just the fact that you, Roy Schestowich, support Rex Ballard and ignore
his obvious fantasies, shows what kind of person you are and to what
lengths you will go to spew your Linux religion.

If Rex Ballard was spewing the same made up stories but was supporting
Windows, you guys would be all over him and he would be turned into a
laughing stock.
However since he supports Linux, you ignore his fairy tales that are
offered with no proof.

I prefer Coke a Cola.

I'd love to know how many Linux enthusiasts own Microsoft stock.
And FWIW one thing has nothing to to with the other except in the mind of
a crazy Linux zealot.

The only thing that had delayed Linux's deployment is Linux itself.
And the Linux community has certainly not helped it any with their smug,
superior attitude.

Remember Linux is free.
So what's the problem with Linux replacing Windows on the desktop?

Maybe the reality is that Linux isn't good enough and people are just not

Judging by the articles in the popular PCMAgs they are interested in Vista
Pages of articles on Vista and it's not even released yet.

But Linux?

Nowhere to be found except in 3rd world countries and geeks desktops.
