    Re: Why Linux? Because Linux is better!

    RBarak (where does that come from by the way?), it's great that you like Ubuntu, Linux is indeed fantastic and Ubuntu is a great distro, but using Linux isn't about not using Windows, it's not about...

    Re: How to get refund for unused Windows?

    First of all, talking about "microsoft garbage", "windows crap" and "windoze" isn't big, isn't clever and doesn't really impress anyone.
