Hi all,

Windows 8 is released.

Help Microsoft to fight against software piracy.

Suggest people to use Open Source Linux Distribution.


Thanks

I do my part by keeping my opinions to my self. This way i don't have to waste my time explaining technical details to someone who most likely will have forgotten most of it before i even finish: and i don't waste there time while they pretend to listen.
I only talk about Linux if someone asks.
Here's the way i look at it. What is the one thing most people know about Jehovahs Witnesses? They're annoyingly go door knocking trying to get converts, (Nothing against Jehovahs Witnesses, just stating this particular belief is annoying).
I would be interested to see the statistics of people whom were convinced to convert. When i get unwanted pressure to do something i had no interest to do, yes it brings it to my attention, but it's all negative, and as the old saying goes, first impressions last.

I don't see why you would announce a Window$ release on a Linux forum. I don't care about Window$ and want nothing to do with it.

I don't see myself as a preacher and will only suggest using Linux to people who are able to understand and change. I have given up on arguing with people who are not capable of understanding, it's a futile effort.

I notice that whenever people ask me for my opinion, they already know it before they ask, and they ask it because they are bored and want to argue with me. They basically are trying to start an argument, and I refuse to answer, that's why I really don't talk very much. They want to provoke me, to convert me, to change me. I don't want the same in return, I want to be left alone.

I can only discuss with people that can think and reason. So again, I will not recommend Linux like some preacher.

I also don't care about windows 8 nor any of there future releases. I also don't preach linux to people because it it a waste of time. If they want an alternative OS let them find out themselves just like I did.
