    *embarassed grin* I forgot about Brainstorm. I signed up ages ago, but it lost priority in my "Check Daily" list. Thanks!
    Why are uploads slower than downloads? That's easy. When you upload, the computer has to push the bits upward. When you download, the bits just fall by gravity, so it's much faster.

    ~/ ~/ on the range...

    Well,that's just a repetition of the idea of a tutorial then.Probably wasn't in the right frame of mind that day.....

    Well, personally I have heard alot of different excuses. And I will not push the issue. If it is a valid excuse, I help them find alternatives and have them test it out. Kind of like test driving a new car. If it is a lame excuse, then I leave them alone. Why waste your time, they are stuck on windoze. I hate to say it, cause to me Linux, any distro, is better than Windoze. For everything, except maybe gaming.

    I read in one of the post that it isnt a Professional working desktop, Have you looked around, there are plenty of apps that are professionally used.

    People end up using Linux almost everyday, with out even knowing it.

    Most cell phones, are running some sort of Linux distro, or at least unix. Most servers people connect through, is a Linux server. Most of your bar stool games, you know those ones you put maybe a dollar in, and play a game by touching the screen. That is running Linux. Alot of Professional security admins, photographers, medical, music, drafting, and alot others use Linux.

    Cell phones, sort of. More and more are turning to Windows and OS X based mobile platforms. All the bar stool games I've seen are all Windows. Finally, for the professions, most of them use Windows, even the security admin. What you are thinking is clusters. Macro-Linux clusters are lighter than NT based clusters and generally perform better, not to mention cost a lot less.

    "Firefox is expensive"

    Mozilla Firefox (tm) is expensive? It does have a restrictive EULA and it isn't stricto sensu Free software, but it is freeware...

    Tsk, tsk, another person who completely misunderstood the purpose of the new FF3 EULA. It's for the name and associated artwork for Firefox. Ie, the Firefox logo and just the name "Firefox" itself. Everything below the branding is completely open-source.

    Be that as it may, it limits repackaging and redistribution rights, therefore it isn't stricto sensu Free Software.

    Tsk, tsk, another person who has no idea what he's talking about.
