Using Linux Mint 17.3 (for ease) and LibreOffice 5.0, which handles MSOffice stuff seamlessly now. No viruses (if you download from certified repos), no crashes, auto updates of everything (asks politely first). Talks straight to my Note 4 and syncs. Just works. Oh, and it's all free. Why Windows?
Yep. Common saying when I lived in Japan 40 years ago.
Young Eddie gets a lot wrong. No "punitive import taxes" on Toyotas (Thailand's 2nd biggest EXporter after Japan), Mazdas, Nissans, Fords, etc, only on fancy imported stuff. Same with bikes.

Coup d'etat? Yes, and eagerly supported by all of us (with intelligence). The fascist Red Shirts, led by US puppet Thaksin, then his sister/daughter Yingluck, almost wrecked the country then stole rice crops from their own supporters. Yingluck's about to be tried for fraud, just like her daddy/brother, who skipped out.

Phuket? Oh, the Ph=P, the u=oo and the k=g, and the t=d. Get it?

เบื่อฝรั่งโง่ Look it up!
