Buy a Microsoft Product?

No you bloody don't - unless it's a mouse.

You pay for a license to use it!! Until just as long as they don't decide to pull the plug.

PC Use

Hmmm. Do you know, when I were a lad I had to take TWO driving tests. I had to take one before I were allowed on t' road on a motorbike without 'L' plates, and bugger me if I didn't have to go through the whole bloody stitherum again before they would let me do t' same in a car.

Now, considering as 'ow 99.9% of botnet computers are belongin to feckin clueless Micro$oft Windose users, dosna tha all reckon that it might be time for ALL PC users to pass some sort of test BEFORE they are allowed on the Internet??

Tha' knows!

Mine's the one wi t' pit pony tied to it, tha' knows

Windose Install

"as the install of a Windows image on a bare PC takes only a few minutes."

Last time I did it, it took bloody hours, including having to go on the Internet (via another operating system) to find device drivers that bloody Windose couldn't find on a fresh install.

M$ Pcs

Ha! You know you could always go to Austria (Graz is the place I know) and find PCs for sale with ONLY Linux Ubuntu offered. For a little more money you could have a dual boot Linux/Windose machine!

OS Purchase?

Since when? You only license it! Especially with M$! Like most other software you never OWN it!

To see M$ take this one on, and then get taken to the cleaners by the writers of the stuff already mentioned.

MS Orifice


"MS Office is sooo much easier to use."

Is it bollox! How many wasted hours have I spent trying to make the spawn of the devil MS Office - particularly MS Worm - behave.
