    I'm not sure what the lamest excuse I've been given is, but I just hate the general apathy with which they accept M$. Free software is largely a philosophical endeavor for me, not that I don't love the pragmatic side too. I guess I really feel a bit sorry for all the sheeple that mindlessly refuse to think outside of the box....
    I see that there is evil, and I know that there is good, and the in-betweens I've never understood...

    I usually get as far as installing Linux, playing with it for a bit and then forgetting about it before I then download an updated version and go through the whole palaver again. I have done this with, in order: Slackware, Red Hat, Debian, SuSE and most recently two releases of Ubuntu!

    I've just downloaded 7.04 and I've set aside a whole hard disk for dual booting and this time I really will stick with it. Honest.

    Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    Just remembered a classic excuse from a chap I used to work with. For the record, I've pretty much always evangelised Linux even though I didn't use it a great deal. I was in a discussion with a Unix sysadmin I used to work with, he was promoting FreeBSD and I was behind Linux.

    The other bloke comes over, listens to us talk for a minute or two and then pronounces to us both, "there's no point in using either - anything that's free can't be worth using. If it was any good they'd be able to make money on it". With that he walked off with a smug grin on his face.

    we got a winner, that one is very frequent and it is pretty ridiculous, so it is the lamest excuse.
