    A place where i am supreme emporer
    Always one "english major" in the group :rolleyes:

    anyhow ... Linux is the way to go ... fast, stable, free in most cases, and open for everyone to play with.

    Can't you read!?!

    It's IBM! not IMB! It was like that since the beginning. I did not edit my post to correct any mistake... even if it says so at the end of my post. I'm not crazy, you are! :D

    P.S.: IMB means "International Majestic Belchers™"

    Edit: Bummer! I was able to edit the title of my first post but not the title of the thread. I should have know this would happen someday. :rolleyes:

    Back on topic, Anyone noticed about how we hear more and more of companies and government trying to break free of windows/microsoft clutch?

    On top of my head: IBM, Government of Japan, Government of China, Government of England (not 100% sure about this one), and many more I can't recall. It's no wonder Microsoft is starting a new campaing aimed directly against Linux. Billy's getting scare:

    And the song of the day is:

    I Want to Break Free
