Ubuntuforums hark and Listen my word !

WE as a Community WE have the POWER to do whatever WE want !

We are 800 000 People ! Just now 14000 Are online CAN YOU FEEL THIS POWER ?!

WE as Ubuntuforums WE as Community WE as Linux User WE CAN MOVE THINGS !

NOT only in programming the Most awesume OS made out of WIN but in whatever WE want if WE GET UP AND MOVE !!!

Go to the Streets write emails Open Petition and WE will be the ones Controlling the Companys *caugh* *Checking wheter stdout is sane ... No*

*apt-get sanity -force*

What the author of this thread is trying to tell you is that If we would work together we could really move things ...

Like in this campauign for voting for Adobe to Fix Bugs ...
But i think even Greather Goals could be acoomplished if we work together as Community.

Just Imagine 70k People (This are not even 10% of registered users) writing e-mails to Company XY to make drivers /release specs for there device AZ or release a Linux version of there Product (GTA V for Linux :D) though the later isnt really the best idea (do we really nead closed source on linux?)

I think we should really start using our Potential for making Linux Public and have support from the great Hardware manufacturers (i mean real support with working drivers)

So thanks for reading

Even scarier: You pulled that quote, pretty much word for word, right out of my dream.

[THRUSTS Ubuntu LiveCD in your face...]


Oh, please. Billy Mays is so last year. Vince Offer is where it's at.
Please. Let's put Vince "You'll LOVE my nut's!" Offer and Billy Mays in a mano-a-mano steel-cage Death Match and SEE who has the Awesome Power of Ubuntu.

Vince, buddy, you're outta your league...






/But wait, there's more!!! Order now and I'll DOUBLE the offer!!

800 000 in a PC market of let's say 1 000 000 000, that's 0,0008%.

That's enough to move a feather if it's already windy outside.

Did you know that on the February 10, 2009 episode of Adam Corolla's radio talk show, Billy Mays challenged Vince Offer to a "pitch off"?

You did your math incorrectly.

800,000 / 1,000,000,000 = 0.0008

0.0008 x 100 = 0.08%

Your point still makes some sense, though.
