Well, this is getting out of hand. If you're posting from the linux.advocacy
group, then you should just stay there and forget about this as I will too
because it won't get anywhere with your reasoning.
I'm not like most Linux people I come across "oh, Linux will rule the
world!", "Anything not Linux sucks!", "We're anti-M$,
anti-anything_not_linux!" yadda yadda yadda... And yes, I know there are
some BSD people that think like this too, but in the Linux world, it's the
*Linux trend* to be anti-MS.
If somethings does the job for me better than something else, then I'll use
it - end of story! If someone doesn't like it, well that's just too bad for
them now isn't it? I'm not going to follow other people, or trends like most
Linux'ers have... Linux or nothing! Sorry, that attitude is just not for me
and I feel sorry for those negative & closed minded individuals.
It's all about the right tool for the job! If Linux does something I need
that one of the BSD's don't (for free, or better, or for whatever valid
reason), then I'll use it; same with windows! But so far, *BSD or Windows
does all the jobs I need as of yet but that's just me. I'm open minded.
If someone starts a new religlion (as it almost is now) and their god is
Linus Torvalds I'm not going to quit my religion because other people are
Now, as for your comment on 'illegal monopoly' care to elaborate? Are you a
legal lawyer, or a legal judge? I didn't think so!
I still would financially support *BSD over MS any day! Linux, I would only
for non-MS'ish distro's such as Slackware to name just one. Most certainly
not RedHat, Mandrake, SuSe, Caldera, etc.. The MS of the *nix world IMHO.
PS: Caldera still thinking of 'licensing' their Linux distro in the same way
MS does? Or has it already been done? I can't comment on the other 188+
Linux distro's to date.
