    Just a thought if it doesnt makes sense at all--- its late and ive got an exam in like 8 hours and i really need some sleep , wich im about to have in 3-2-1:snork::snork:::

    Ummm I once wrote a paper on Software PIRACY....I think you will find because Linux is free, that it doesnt out do Windows in third world/poorer counries. Did you know some countries have a 90%+ piracy rate?

    I use Windows.


    EDIT-DAMN I forgot to add that 1 copy of windows could provide for half a country etc etc, thats why piracy is so bad.
    Such is life.

    Dont want to quote evrything but true , there'll be lots of piracy but ive heard of a country in latin-america where the government really supports the use of linux/ Unix systems.

    Its a good thing for the people pirating it.

    Not such a good thing for people who have to pay more for their own software to compensate for piracy.
