Why didn't you post this in a new threat. And you can't mount a music CD just play it.

To oopicmaster(?),what are you trying to prove??Any way,your arguements will not have any takers here.because they are invalid arguements.I,personaly,am not an MS basher as such.I am using a duel boot.fine??So what do you want us to do??To leave linux???its not going to happen.If you want to use linux,use it.If you dont want,dont use it.Dont try to change our stands,because it is not going to happen.Because we use linux not because 'some friend's opinion',we have got perfect reason to use linux.That is it.And that is why linux is the fastest growing OS for the last three years??
BTW,do you work for MS Public Relations??
to others,Why should we waste our time spending on this thread anymore??

Yes, BTW I do.

And guess what? They pay me more than 5.00/hour. Which in India, would be considered to be a friggin fortune!

I am sick and tired of folks bashing Microsoft!

All they are is Bill Gates haters who are jealous of the Billions he made being smarter than they were.

Linux is cool, but like I said before, there is NOTHING new in Linux. It is simply a cheap Unix clone, no innovation whatsoever.

What drives the furture of technology is innovation, not just copying something thats already out there, as Linux has done.

Command line level Microsoft, is STILL way better than command line Linux.

I understand you will work for anyone,provided they pay you 5.00/hrs.(Is your family members are also like this??If yes,feel free to contact me.!!I am in a condition to pay more!!!!!)I am not in a situation where i should sell my heart and soul to someone for 5.00/hr.I know how to 'reply' to this remark,but my culture doesnt allow me to do so in such a serious forum.Moreover,I express my deepest sympathy to you on your brain's present working condition,but what can we humans do other that pray for recovery??

Wow, I've not been checking my e-mails for a while, and my inbox was full of this thread only . It's just amazing what bored, incapable of learning something different (or learning anything at all) and probably lonely peoples with no friends as oopicmaster can do to get some attention, isn't it? I kinda feel sorry for him...
Everybody "vote oopicmaster" at the console... oh wait, this is not CS . Anyway, I'll unsubscribe too...

Yes, for 5.00/hour without Health benefits you can hire MOST if not ALL of India's technical talent, and work them 20 hours a day. You haven't heard? We in the US surely have!
