With all due respect but it's not a treatise or anything else objective, just a question:

. I don't see the value of that getting digged except free ride publicity for your thread there.

The majority of Linux users also use toilet paper. What's your point?

If you're going to try and start discussions like this, at least put a little meat in it to give us something to discuss.


DISCLAIMER: The use of the term 'Toilet Paper' in connection with a thread about Microsoft Windows is purely coincidental. Any connections or mental images drawn from this are solely the responsibility of the owner of the mind that created them.

It's an opinion, not digg-worthy and doesn't have any facts to back it. I fail to see the value of the link. I have closed this, if you really do wish to discuss/debate this with the LQ members, feel free to read through the Linux vs Windows megathread in General and if you think there is anything to add, start a new thread and put your workings clearly on the thread.
