ya used to be a criminal?


I really love using a free OS. I never really felt comfortable with all the rips/ and burns and cracks of the windows world. Changing to Linux made me realize just how much I felt like a criminal, sneaking around, wondering if I was sending them info when I updated, worrying about this and that and just the overall sneakiness of it. Admit it [don't] ~ who actually pays $350 and up for their Corporate pro version of XP?

Bah! No more of that!!

lol....

its quite funny moving to linux....
using windows i devoped this weird habbit...

every time i needed to do somthing.... for example convert MY CD's WHICH IVE PAID FOR into mp3's so i can listen to them on my pc...

id go onto the internet, look for a trial ripper (that i havent already used) install it, use as much as possible till the free perion was over.

so when i moved to linux, decided i needed to do some ripping, go on the net, only to find i have the best of the best rippping programs pre-installed, free, no damn share-ware !!! brill

If you can actually manage to get the thing to run maybe it is worth it.

heh heh I know - you are forced to learn stuff. I like that most of the time but it can be a drag at times. It's the sort of OS that you customize and develope over a long period of time. It will be your trusted steed after a few years [yes it will last that long without reinstalling].
