  • Again,shows the weakness or poor designed

    and the inherent vulnerabilities of the useless

    and expensive Microsoft Operating Systems.

    I am amused to see how these IT Evangelists

    preach the virtues of badly designed IE.

    As Oscar always refers:

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks

  • Hey Pinchacool man.

    Telling that dude,the truth,I could not

    articulate better the way that you put it.

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks.

  • I had a Linux once. It didn't work. I tried to make it do the Wi-Fi, but it said I had to compile a driver. I don't have a compile! Then there was this Ubuntu that had a Gnome that I understood and then it was a Unity and it was crap and none of my icons worked anymore. I tried to play games on a Linux, but Tuxracer is very old and freeciv was very crap. If the source is open, why are the games so crap? And LibreOffice ran slow and couldn't check my grammar. And I need a grammar check. I don't like Ubuntu anymore cos it is too mainstream. RedHat is run by capitalist running dogs and is not pure enough. Debian has too many followers. The way that you can tell a Linux distro is cool is by the number of people that use it. Distros that people use like Ubunto are really uncool but if you can find a distro that noone uses you have found the best Linux distro ever and you will get much Karma on Slashdot. Penguins are cool.

  • Narkor you are a genius. You should try out my new distribution Insektos. It doesn't use Gnome, Unity, or KDE but IceWM. You don't really need to use the window manager though because all cool stuff in Linux is done from the command line. I'm even browsing this site in Lynx because GUIs are for 'tards.

  • Hey Pinchacool man.

    Telling that dude,not the truth,I could not

    articulate worse the way that you put it.

    Linux Sucks

    Microsoft Rocks.

    I am a pointless Troll.

  • The most awesome platform in the solar system is Mac OS X Lion. Why? Lions dude. When PaddlePop wanted to sell more ice cream, did they go with a Penguin or a big number 7? No man, FKN Lion.

    Can Penguins form Voltron? Can the number 7?

    Nah man - FKN Lions all the way.

    If you put a Lion and a penguin in a cage match, the Lion would rip the penguin's head off! I don't know what a Lion would do to a number 7, but you don't want to mess with a Lion.

  • Again,shows the weakness or poor designed

    and the inherent vulnerabilities of the useless

    and pointless Open Source Operating Systems.

    I am amused to see how Trolls Like Me

    preach the virtues of command line.

    I live in a Basement

  • Narkor you are a troll. You should try out my new distribution Insektos. It doesn't use Gnome, Unity, or KDE, or keyboards, or power or any hardware. It is a cardboard box with glitter on it You don't really need to use the window manager though because all cool stuff in Linux is from the 80s. I'm even browsing this site in Lynx because GUIs are for smarter people than me.

  • This isn't where I parked my car...

  • Well, it shows the quality and the caliber of the Microsoft

    boot lickers, the lack of narrative and argument to understand

    the issues of poorly designed Operating System, the so called

    “vulnerabilities” that is prevalent in any Windows OS, to the

    detriment and danger to “Windows  User’s.

    The Cyber Scams are the in domain of Windows users and for

    what we know, nothing are said of other Operating Systems.

    Or what about the former employees of Microsoft offering

    by phone from overseas, to solve solutions to Windows Users

    that have conflicts with their computers, because, they know

    the inherent “vulnerabilities” which is built in a badly designed

    operating system.

    As typical of Pathetic Simpletons, calling themselves as IT Evangelists

    send like  by a Messiah, to spruik the virtues of the flop, that was Vista

    Or hasta la Vista sick puppy, or the other flop Windows Phone 7,the retail

    Industry, shows that hardly any one touches it, and you lot know very well

    the trusted are iPhone and Android, and the consolation prize is the so called

    royalties collected by MS, is from Google, on the grounds of crying foul.

    Jeff dude if your are using your friends to muck me, wrong chum my

    four year old kid does much better and original than your gullible morons

    As you know, the days of Microsoft preaching are over.finito,comprende?.

    I’ll keep telling you

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks

    Open Source, Free,Safe,Secure.

  • Hey NarKor or “Nacre less”, I do not blame you

    dude if you have losted,anyone licking MS ***ses &boots

    or bending over for MS, might happen like that, or

    you did not your job as been told and you got castrated, poor simpleton, I may pity you a little.

    Jeffa dude or High priest or whatever you are ***.

    As a Latino that knows how to ***nicar Morons like you

    have nothing original to say and you know Colonial simpleton

    that the truth hurts, MS operating systems are flops.

    Full of “Vulnerabilities” and mostly of the Cyber Scams are

    aimed at Windows Users, why is the reason of scanning for

    “windows malicious Software removal tool”, it is because is fools proof.

    Or are poorly designed architecture operating system, keep dreaming on

    Tell me why in the European Market, MS is very restricted, which browser

    and media player is or are used, any comments on that IT Evangelist?(ha,ha,ha).

    Grow up parochial minded lackey.

    The days of MS are over.

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks

  • Well after carefull  consideration

    I “must admit and confirm as follows:

  • Jeffa dude

    IT Evangelist,or what is that a Preacher of virtues,yes?

    Let's say that prayer together
