Thinking of making an Advert/Wallpaper with at one side a wall of desktop-screenshots and at the other side a wall of words. These words should be 'thoughts'that spring to mind when you hear/use the linux-destop. Something like: free - open - custom - choice

Which are the words that 'spring to mind' to you? I need allot of original words to fill that wall..

Safe, Secure, Efficient and your 2 "Open, Choice"

That's what I'd say anyway.

Somehow I don't think they are appropriate... But they sure are original!
Never thought we had anarchists wondering about the ubuntu forums...

When ever I talk to my dad about FOSS he always says the same thing...

"Damn anarchists"

It doesn't stop him from dual booting, but he hates that it is given away free.

I'm selling "Lukjad007's Ubuntu Disks" for $4,999.99 if he wants some. Postage included. And since he is a first time customer, he gets the FOSS (First Opinion Swift Service) discount.

I busted up at the first quote. Sounded like Microsofts press release.

Free - as in Freedom
Safe - as in secure
Flexibility - (Ability to do what I want)
Fun
Frustrating - (at times)
Fantastic - (Had to throw another F in there)

Um, I'd have to look at the records but I'm pretty sure I can beat that price. PM me for details. :lolflag:

The last word may not be the best to signify what I am referring to, but nobody from some giant company is telling me what I must have on my system, or watching what I do on my system, or what I can and cannot do with my system. Granted, if I took things away like the Linux kernel, I wouldn't have a working system anymore, but if I want to get rid of, say, the default web browser, it's gone, if I want to change to a different desktop manager, it is changed, if I want to use my system in a corporate environment, I don't have to pay anyone for the "privilege"

I love using things that arent MS related. It just makes the world that much a better place. When I went back to Windows it felt like I was cheating on my wife (whick who I have been married to for 7 years now).

Sucks somewhat less than Windows.

Rant-on: The automounter just decided not to work, for no knowable reason - maybe it took a coffe break, what do I know... That's why I'm not in a good mood right now... There is no computer system that "just works". They all suck big whatever-balls, but to different degrees. :( :Rant-off.
