@ Crate:
<snip>

Wondering what you're doing on a Windows security software forum  ::)

<snip>


Your post is so full of inaccuracies, that's it's not worth even commenting on it, except for one item...

See post #14 in this thread:

Quote
Another thread here highlights my experience with a new computer that I purchased a year ago, that had Vista installed. Rather than erase it, I kept it around in a dual boot, and recently updated it to Windows 7 (which I like a lot, by the way). Frankly, I very seldom ever boot into Windows, but as long as I have it around, and since I still use Avast as one layer of my protection package, I periodically check in here to see what's going on. I've been a member around here since my XP dual boot days (Joining in 2005, I guess).

What, you don't even read previous posts?

(You're so funny.)

and you're so ridiculous, you have no arguments whatsoever. I don't even think that you know Linux. You're the perfect newbie burning distro ISO's and switching, getting lost, and switching again...what you call testing  :D You have no idea of what I was talking about, you haven't got a freaking clue, this is funny yeah...

ps: you're not even able to tell about the good things in Linux, which I could easily btw  ;)

Ubuntu:
uses GNOME as its default GUI

Kubuntu:
uses KDE as desktop environment

Xubuntu:
uses Xfce as desktop environment

Lubuntu:
uses LXDE as desktop environment
I've only tried Ubuntu and Kubuntu in my old pc!
I can say that Ubuntu don't have desktop crash but kubuntu has time to time.
Ubuntu easier to use that kubuntu.
More people with Ubuntu for linux but still far from beating Microsoft because more or over 99% people are using Microsoft Operating system and Microsoft is easier to use and have more programs from it.

I'm not testing anything. That's what the Squeeze version of Debian is named...

Quote
Debian “squeeze” Release Information

The code name for the next major Debian release after lenny is "squeeze". This release started as a copy of lenny, and is currently in a state called "testing".

http://www.debian.org/releases/testing/

Just one more of the inaccuracies in your posts. As I said, you're funny.

And hey, if the shoe fits...

From post #26:

Quote
You still do run into people who have an intense hatred for all things Linux, but generally, they're just people who are unwilling to fess up to the fact, that they're just not smarter than the operating system, and were beaten by it, when they tried it.

 :)

<yawn>

I've got something else to do, see ya.

It's actually more like 90%.

(some... ??? I doubt it, and no, not you)
would you mind me asking you to stop being the "top sheep" here...or the shepherd as you wish, it's not a church here, it's a web forum

what would you suggest ? someone holding a press conference in this thread, making wrong and misleading statements with arrogance (about Linux in this particular case ) etc...and I should say: "hello, excuse me sir, but may I interrupt you and give my opinion, oh if you don't mind Sir, I know that you're lying Sir but your opinion (ie your lies) is quite respectable Sir, excuse me again Sir, keep spreading the bullshit  ;D

 Well sorry Bob that's not me  8) and I'll keep saying what I think. pic below is just for fun  ;)

Say what you think but give others credit for also having some knowledge.
Especially those that have been here quite a while even if they don't post as much as some of us.  :)

OK let's just say that people like Polonus, Pondus, Essexboy....these are some of the guys I respect here, nothing to do with their post count or how long ago they registered. I respect them and acknowledge their skills. And why do I do that? because it's relevant. What are the other cases where I don't do that? when it's not relevant. Don't make a caricature out of me Bob, I behave differently depending on who I'm talking to, and yeah, this forum mirrors the "outer" world, unsurprisingly  ;)

ps: hmm..on a side note, would you mind reading the source of all this flaming here, and give your opinion ?
