Linux and Yanks
Ummmmm for the record, here's one Yank among many who is thrilled about Ubuntu on Dell and is no big fan of Microsoft either.
So I can't help but wonder if your objection to all of us is that we spawned Microsoft or just a response to the Bush regime nearly 50% of us here have been trying to put an end to.
Seriously, while I can certainly understand our lack of popularity these days if you read our news at all you will find out there has been a division in this country for some years about the direction we are headed in. So please don't apply a blanket statement about a large group of folks like that, lest you start to resemble the very close mindedness you may detest about us and our current leadership.
Also while you are reading our news (notice I read yours for additional and less narrow minded perspective), maybe you should read some history and show a little respect for the people who sacrificed the lives of their young sons in WWII to help you when the chips were so down you had to send your children away from your cities out of fear for their lives. My grandfather lost his brother in that effort.
One final note, if you read even more history you will find that the majority of the messes The Yanks and others are attempting to clean up these days had more than a little to do with Britannia. See Pakistan and India for starters.
Less narrow mindedness, a little more respect for your fellow penguine lovers if you please.
