Don' t you think that's a little harsh. English is obviously not his native language.

No,

I don't

His Language is obviously not my native language or the native language of this forum

I wouldn't expect to be able to post very well in a forum run in his native language.

I think that amjad's post scans very nicely as poetry. It compares favorably to the posts in this thread.

Well... I would say Linux is popular in your place because there are many intelligent people in there .

And well.. maybe some people in your region prefer to get a free OS instead of having to pay to an American monopoly?

Often the combination of being freely available and customiziable is what people like.
The fact that the programs available are quite good also helps.

Why do you think that Linux is popular here in the Arab lands? Is it because of its freedom under the GPL?

I could be wrong in my interpretation, amjad, so please let us know. I am affraid that I couldn't make anything out of the rest of your post, but I did try.

Welcome to LQ, english or what. I think Linux is better than windoze. That is one of many reasons people choose Linux. Yes, stability is great. Nothing worse than a business with a computer that is down.

Keep practicing on that english. It took me while to learn it to. I'm still learning.

Later
