    Doesn't sound like "guessing". Sounds like anti-Christian propaganda. Your tagline (Only knowledge will set you free) seems strangely contradictory when you spout elitist rhetoric that demands a significant part of humanity must hide their knowledge and suppress their truth. You might find the original version of your tagline interesting. Jesus said, "You shall know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free." I suggest you look personally into the truth. You might be surprised at what you find.

    I was born as a Roman Catholic. So...

    Suppress their truth ? How ? When I say faith was mixed with war ? How dare you rewriting history ?

    You should read "1984" written in 1948 by George Orwell.

    And you will REALLY understand my signature. George Orwell wrote :

    It's not re-writing history. I don't deny that crimes have been committed in the name of the church, but that is a straw man. Crimes were committed by Hitler in the name of Darwin, by Stalin in the name of Marx. It doesn't mean those men approved that use of their philosophy. Neither would Christ approve much of what is done in His Name, but that doesn't change His life-changing power nor make Him less of a Saviour. Nor do those crimes negate the value to His followers of software that they can use, which is where this discussion started. I'm still not sure why you would object to the presence of this distro. I'm not sure even you know, but I suspect it has a spiritual rather than intellectual basis. I'll be praying for you.

    Don't forget Hitler went to power using a catholic political party. And that in history, christians killed jewish by dozen.

    by Stalin in the name of Marx. It doesn't mean those men approved that use of their philosophy. Neither would Christ approve much of what is done in His Name, but that doesn't change His life-changing power nor make Him less of a Saviour.
    Saviour for what ? Does original sin exists ? Or was the part of the genesis text a process to explain why human die ?

    Nor do those crimes negate the value to His followers of software that they can use, which is where this discussion started. I'm still not sure why you would object to the presence of this distro.
    Because it is in some way useless and a censoring tool ? Censoring in order to follow the "faith" of some people.

    I'm not sure even you know, but I suspect it has a spiritual rather than intellectual basis. I'll be praying for you.
    Don't waste your time for me. Use it for yourself. I did not believe in anything. That makes me an adult.

    Have a good day, anyway.

    It's my time, and it isn't wasted. I pray that the Lord will give you a hunger and thirst for Him, and that you will find in Him an ever-present help in time of trouble. pm me if you would like a private discussion on the reasons I believe.

    Re: Ubuntu Muslim Edition

    Waste your time if you want. Believes are nothing more than electrical links in our brain.

    Pray the void if it pleases you. Why do believers think they always right ? Fear of being wrong ?

    Well, anyway, you're free to believe in something that only exist in your mind if you want.

    Have a good day. I only hope that you'll ever read anything different than gospels.

    Re: Ubuntu Muslim Edition

    Just so you know, Fred, while I may not be the most educated man in the world, I do have a college education and 30 years working in civil engineering/land surveying. I've read Orwell. Didn't care for his cynical worldview. As far as faith, we are indeed hard-wired to believe by a Master Designer, yet it is somehow still our choice to believe or not.
    I hope you'll try reading the Gospels. They've stood the test of time, and whether you believe or not they have influenced every culture for 2,000 years. They have something valuable to say to you.
    Bon chance, mon ami.

    Edit: I think I will start Ubuntu Atheist Edition

    Nah, what a waste of time...

    Question Re: Ubuntu Muslim Edition

    Whats the point of having "Muslim Edition"? Wouldn't the localized versions for arabic, farsi, etc... provide all the language needs of a Muslim user the same way french, italian, or whatever woudl provide for a catholic user? Is a Muslim edition going to quote sutras from teh Koran to you every time you log in or have a desktop background of Mecca?

    Honestly - what's the point?

    Same point as they have any other editions of ubuntu, Hobby maybe, some spare time, contributions to community. If it helps people so be it.
    BTW, believe in nothing is some form of believe too. We are all believer of what we believe.
