Hello

don't u guys know the true reality behind ubuntu?

have you tried typing (u) (b) (u) (n) (t) (u) on msn?

It means something like this

I'm broken hearted, my girlfriend left me, i've drunk a beer to forget her, but that beer didn't worked, i'm still broken hearted, and i'm in low moral too, so i try to phone her but she doesn't reply, so i'm even worse.

Is this the true reality of ubuntu? Will we all sooner or later lose our girlfriends?

Or maybe this is all an advertising idea of Microsoft against ubuntu, saying if we change to ubuntu, we won't get in touch with anything, or anyone, and we will loose all touch with reality? :roll:

:grin: :grin: :grin:

in attachment the screenshot from my msn :)

I'll take whatever MSN says with a grain of salt.

Amen. I've never valued the opinion of Microsoft as a corporation... and I can say the same for their software and web platforms. If that MSN has a beef with me, it can come over to my house and I'll kick its code back to fortran.

Ubuntu is user friendly and can be pretty (using gnome, KDE or XFCE). My girlfriend likes ubuntu user interface.

People don't know if they like something or not until they see/try it.

And that's another thing. We have a whole forum board on the subject on helping Ubuntu better fit the needs and desires of women. Whereas Microsoft... has rarely made any sort of effort to give a girl what she wants... fun! :D

And productivity. And a good, working computer.

If you just made the women you love mad, then you have to do what every other heterosexual dude on the face of the planet does when he makes his woman mad!

You beg!

Usually large gestures like you showing up in a large public place with a band, making a fool of yourself in front of her co-workers, and singing "Your song" might help.
Giving her favorite flowers and another gift you know she likes (maybe something you made)...

Then when she gets home (if you live together, if not schedule it) you have a romantic dinner waiting. Yet more gifts and more making yourself into a fool and admiting you don't deserve her, explaining what a fool you were, how good she is... You probably already got the point! You bad, she good...

If she's just gone, then vent out somehow... People usually have this one all to themselves.
Some write, others paint, other wrestle, build...

I don't know how it works where you live, but generally speaking...
Men are always wrong, and women always right.

If you end up being right one time, then you'll be damned because you were right and made her submit to you...

Maybe your women are a diferent breed over there!?

If I did that to any women I know I'd never hear the end of it!

The women of the forums are probably just containing their excitment over this admited simple truth!

I think thats sexist, there are some intelligent women out there its just generally men reward them for being silly about things ;) . To be honest I've never had any issues of this kind since all the women I know well understand my patience in all things.

I never said that there aren't any inteligent women out there, nor did I ever say that I didn't go threw life being silly about something serious to lessen the "crisis"...

...But; in general; in an argument you have done something remotelly wrong, then what I said applies... Doesn't it?

In both my posts.

Generally women are right and men are wrong if said women even remotelly thinks you messed up... Doesn't matter if you think your right.(Men)

Women have that one won. They win when they think they're right. Men grovel, beg, ridicule themselves just for their ladies.

A big show just for that special someone is usually a good thing, but might get you out of the "dog house"...

Well, I don't think an interest in computers should deter women from a guy. Just be interesting; and computers are not interesting. I like computers, but I hate talking about them. It makes me feel geeky, and I hate that of myself.

Like cars, football or any other specialist interest they are only interesting to those that are also interested.

I have no problem discussing that with someone of a similar mind as long as its not for too long. However if you find yourself unable to discuss other topics with people I strongly suggest you find more interests (this does not include the finer points of japanese anime)

nobody hates a philosophy, literature or art geek that actually knows what they are talking about

BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War.
:lol: That article made me wet myself laughing!

Perhaps MSN is trying to send other subliminal messages via emoticons? Who's gonna try it? :lol:

lol i agree with everything lapsey said, amen

i once found myself discussing ubuntu with a fellow computer science student at a punkrock/grungy-despressive gig which was a change, i'm sure there wouldn't have been one other person in that place interested but i wouldn't have even tried, i know where to keep my computer science knowledge .... safely hidden, in comes the photography .. most people can relate to that

I thought I had better point out, I use 'lady' in this post very liberally.

How can someone as computer-obsessed, fashion-hating, slobbish, and generally un-ladylike as me be called a lady? Just 'cause of these fleshy bumpy things I guess. Oh, and the spewing blood for a week every month. (I must be immortal - if a guy bled for a week every month, I'm sure he'd be dead quite quickly...)

I have to say this is true of me also, but at least my brother is much the same, but he lives in London. He got a job with Google.
