    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I really wish I had the money to donate to one of the Linux projects, and as soon as I do, I definitely will. Knowing how many people are going to fork over 80 bucks US, to get the new version of Windows 8 and then be disappointed, is disheartening. I know how hard the dev's work to keep all of us happy! Happy to not be using MS that is! Free is a misnomer here, as "time is money" and it takes a lot of time to get whatever distro your using up to it's current standards. I also know it's hard to make everyone happy all the time! That said, for now my contribution will have to come in the form of the written word on my blog site. Since August 15th, that amounts to over 12,000 viewers! So if you want to know what I have to say about the wondrousness of Linux, look no further than; No Thanks, I have Linux! (I had to change at least one word so as not to make merelyjim on the #! CrunchBang Linux Forums think I was stealing his title! )

    Moderators, feel free to redirect this post to wherever you deem it should be! This is just where I post the most. I just wanted people to know how important 'we the users' donations are in the continuation and betterment of Linux, and Open-Source projects, really is. Donations can come in many forms, i.e. money, word of mouth, posting something positive on your blog, or even contributing to development etc.

    Thanks,

    Now you've polluted a positive thread about this with a very long negative one.

    The new thread seemed kind of positive about this, and the old thread you merged it with had a lot of negativity.
