    Re: An Ubuntu story

    It's just bad that the idea of using Linux could lead someone to think your a criminal. creating the best operating system in the world doesn't need that kind of resistance.

    "Want to try Ubuntu Linux?"

    "No, I don't want to go to jail"

    I laughed out loud at the first post, and linked to it from my journal. Awesome.

    Re: An Ubuntu story

    Went into "Currys Digital" the other day in search of a cheap PnP portable hard drive, asked the guy in the store which one wouldnt require silly proprietary drivers, and would therefore work on Linux. He laughed at me and said "With Linux you have to build your own drivers". I can honestly say that in 18 months of various Linux flavours that I've never had to build my own driver for anything. *sigh*

    That's not really the point.

    You claim you were arrested simply because some customer services dogsbody said you were doing something illegal and disclosed your personal details to the Police.

    She had no right to do that, had no evidence that you had done anything wrong and again with no evidence you were arrested on suspicion of commiting a crime.

    And you consider that to be acceptable?
