    Final leap-good bye microsoft

    Well, I finally took the time to Change over all my software to Opensorce, I have been wanting to for some time but had these lingering tasks like transfering all the account data and such. Now it is done and I am no longer using MS for anything. Hoorah!

    Yeah, congratulations, you are now truly part of the gang, please feel free to make ridiculous posts about how evil miscrosoft are, preferably including phrases l <snip>

    Since when has Linux been about not using Microsoft products,to anyone other than RMS?

    Waahoo, Congrats, liberating isn't it. I haven't jumped off the Microsoft sled just yet myself. Can't play Counter Strike or Left4Dead very well under Linux. Until that day comes, I'll have a Windows box somewhere in the house.

    Not all Linux software is open-source. I think the default Ubuntu kernel includes binary blobs and the like. And there's other software besides that.
