this whas written at securityfocus, a very good statement.
" You can't increase security by giving people the wrong information, or not enough of the right information. If you don't like Microsoft, then don't buy their products. Write your congressman. Get a job at Oracle. Wear a penguin T-shirt. Do something about it. But don't wave your Microsoft Sucks flag with your left hand while pocketing your stipend with your right unless you just want to be part of the problem. "
Many of you want to learn Linux, but eventually end up choking during install. Still you keep complaining about M$ and keep posting negative things about them.
You don't have to be an expert or Linux user to avoid using windows. You can get a Mac instead. Or keep trying to use Linux, but never give up.

But I'll still wave my M$ sucks flag! Just because....the truth is the truth no matter what your philosophical views.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

My logical nonesense
M$ sucks, true, but thats after the fact that every one has to start somewhere whether it be a Mac or windows. No one just picks up linux as their first os.
Sure M$ is capitalist, scandelous, and taking full advantage of there monopoly over under educated computer users, but you can't deny that there programs are VERY easy to install and use.
But untill you learn whats really going on with microsoft and why Bill GAYtes is a billionare, then you start to stand up and wave that M$ sucks flag.
So how many linux users still use or have used windows? Without windows, begginers have to turn to Mac, which in my opinion sucks.( I just installed Linux a couple days ago) But at least M$ is good for something.
