    >Sounds like somebody got caught with a h4x0red corperate install of XP.<

    Okay....... that really doesn't make any sense.....

    >Someone is not a hypocrite if they critisize the
    US government and continue to live here. They're
    a patriot. They love their country so much, they
    don't want to see it crumble under the leadership
    of moronic politicians who seemingly always try
    to pass unconstitutional acts.<

    Exactly.

    >If you don't like Microsoft, tough nuggets, what you gonna do about it? <

    Thats a pretty lame response...

    >I just don't understand all the complaining. Also, I don't see how a supposed monopoly can affect one individual so much that he has to say he hates both the US Government, and Microsoft.<

    Thats because you've never worked for a company that competes with Microsoft, and experinced what its like. Its not my fault that your to naive to understand.

    >One more thing mfc2themax, if your not a fan of the US Government, why do you have an american flag as your avatar?<

    I should have been more clear, our current adminstration is the one thats terrible.

    >i agree, GWB is a complete idot, and MS sucks...my question is...if you dont like MS..then why is your name 'mfc2themax?<

    I registerd it a few months ago, didn't feel like getting a new one.

    >Jealousy? I think so.<

    Why would i be Jealous of Microsoft?? I turned down a position to work there (i talked more about it in a previous thread).

    >The registeration for passport, is no diffent then any other registeration. It just registers you for all the sites that use it.<

    Oh man, this whole world is gone from it.... nobody seems to know whats actually going on up in Remond.

    >I mean, there is a reason why it is leading for software. You know?<

    Yes i know, they use illegal tactics. I have a lot of good contacts with Senior level execs up there and have great insight into how the company works.

    MICRO

    What I think is that more people nedd to start taking risks and abandon Microsoft and move twords Linux which is now pretty safe. The only reason Microsoft had a monopoly is because we have brainless Idiots that are too afraid to just take a leap from Microsoft and find something better.

    SAD

    And that's the attitude that made microsoft rule the world.

    Computers are not about comfort or predictability. Thant would be boring.

    No, computers are about the excitment when you boot up wether it will work or not after you installed a new motherboard or recompiled your kernal. That is what a computer is about.

    >

    <

    software is being written for everything!!

    >

    <

    and 90% of drivers are written for *nix also
    furthermore, Windows does not yet support firewire which means its way behind.

    Paradox:

    nobody writes software for anything but windows because everybody has windows, nobody will get other OSes because nobody writes software for other OSes, SO EVERYBODYS AFRAID TO MOVE AN MS WINS!!!! WAKE UP!

    Windows XP supports it, and does not support USB 2.0, despite the fact that Microsoft is on the USB board.

    I love this type of argument, everyone uses a microsoft product so microsoft sucks. Go figure.
