Thoughts on why we love to hate MS.

Posted 07-02-2010 at 04:24 PM by rich_c

I read an article today entitled "Why do we (Love to) hate Microsoft." An interesting piece but the comments are as, if not more, telling. I, like many others spent many years not knowing any better.

Making a usb fridge/warmer in an old Barbie doll locker (repainted of course).

Going to use linux via the parallel port to fire off compressed air rockets on the fourth.

Running U 10.04 on an old 800 mhz laptop. Not too bad.

Have another linux box to build.

Linux router + jet direct + electronics = home control possibilities.
