I dunno what the fuss is, I use two operating systems to hide my illegal activities- One is windows, full of illegally downloaded software that works half the time, the other is Ubuntu, full of perfectly legal open source programs :-p

Interesting read, but it seems to be lacking something. I'm not sure what.

This has been covered in another thread. He was not arrested for that, but accused of hacking into Boston College Computers and changing grades.

Locking this thread. Here is the first thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1126083&highlight=boston).
