    huh?


    as for Flying windows, I suppose it's windows, but I have NO IDEA on what "tux" or "crash and destroy" mean

    I'm not going to vote... yet

    please explain to me what are those other two

    LoL, I thought you were Engineer.

    Well, I voted for Tux, because I think that's Linux. Although, the Linux mascot is a penguin.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Tux

    Tux is the name of the pinguin that is the mascot of linux. Flying windows is windows because so many people used to have the flying windows screensaver(I think) that they just started calling them that. As for Crash and Destroy I think its just meant for as they both suck or you like other ones better (like BeOS).

    It can be interpret as:
    Windows = Bill's OS
    Linux = Linus' OS

    Talking

    Tux is a penguin(not sure how to spell it)-God.
    Everyone should worship him/her/it!
    That's why I can call myself a Tuxist!!!
    LOL.

    Just ignore this...

    screw linux, I'm a windows man. The masses use windows, so why not dev for it? winXP is great, so is 2K and NT...don't judge windows by 9x or you're just a complete idiot...

    ...and if you use "Linux is open source though, dude!!" or "Windoze is evil cuz you gotta pay." or "Anything MS is crap!" as an argument, I'll hit you so hard yo momma'll feel it....

    Kill me if you want, but I use Windows, and will always use Windows. I once tried Linux and it sucked very hard (don't ask), so I vote Windows.

    Windows for me as well. I mean what choice do you have if you want to use certain software packages that are essential? No dual boot for me ..I just telnet into the school server if I wanna play with a true UNIX system. I actually just wrote my own shell the other day ...it's better than the korn(y) shell.
