    "Because it is not Microsoft's"

    I almost hit my head with the wall.
    "I've got the money to use Windows." "Great!, I've got the knowledge to use Linux."

    Anyone with me? I can create a simple pmWiki space on my server if anyone is interested.
    Quoting because I thought everyone should read this post again.

    I think that is a good idea, it would be nice if the guy who started this thread created it (started it).

    ok... what do I say to that? Ubuntu will now read/write NTFS, Openoffice has saved in .doc and others for some time now... when this one comes up I don't typically continue helping them with Ubuntu.
    This is where those "If your freinds all jumped off a bridge/cliff/stood in the middle of the freeway..." quotes come in handy.
