    You still have mighty loose moral principals.
    Your own reasoning for needing Win 7 was gaming only.
    You now have additional uses that forced you to succumb to
    activation/authentication ?

    It's not Linux users. It's Windows users that Linux users observe. It's
    Windows users that Linux users have to bail out because Windows fails to
    live up to all of it's hype and propaganda.

    My Windows problems are minimal because my Windows use is.

    THIS is bog standard iTunes behavior. However, Linux tools don't do this.
    There just isn't any reason for them. There isn't any sort of DRM or other
    strange compulsion driving this.

    This is a part of his post that is a total lie and fabrication and is a
    pretty good indication that he's never touched Ubuntu in his entire life.

    This is one area where Ubuntu simply stomps all over all of the competition.

    That's hilarious. Every machine I've ever installed Linux on had the
    correct sound and printer drivers automatically installed.

    Liar. I've never seen a Linux installation run as slow as Windows does.

    Windows 7 is still inferior to Linux. While Win7 is a huge improvement over

    Well if you'd open your eyes and look at the headers, you'd see that
    this thread has been cross-posted between comp.os.linux.advocacy and
    alt.windows7.general. I'm reading this in alt.windows7.general and
    perhaps the other guy was as well. There are a few twits here that have
    been fanning a flame war between Linux and Windows and it's my guess the
    thought it would be cute to start cross-posting this mess to a Linux group.

    COLA is not a Linux group. It's an anti MS group. Subscribe and be
    amazed at the lies and froth these morons spout about Windows and
    Balmer/Gates. It's astonishing how much hate single cellar dwelling
    fat guys with dirty beards can generate. God knows how their Mom's put
    up with them down in the basement pretending to have girlfriends and
    daughters who regularly use Linux on their new laptops ......
