    You are talking about some 95% of all the computers in the world. So,
    you are saying 95% of all the computer users are too dumb to know,

    but alias knows.

    You are correct. Fast food chains have become rich, Cocaine cartels
    have become rich and Microsoft has become rich..... All of them by
    providing something that their customers want to buy.

    Ubuntu, on the other hand gives their stuff away and their lifetime
    success is 1/1400th that of Microsoft's MONTHLY sales.

    It appears that Ubuntu is attempting to give away something that the
    vast majority of the computing world takes no interest in - won't even
    take it for free.

    I guess that is the story of your life.... you rush about shouting
    Mine is best! Mine is longest! Mine is biggest!

    And nobody cares.

    It must be terrible to be the Prophet of the Future only to discover
    that your audience turns their back on you, and walks away.

    Some of the earlier Prophets used to whip up a miracle or two to
    convince the ungodly. Will alias perform a miracle to astound the
    multitudes? Will we call you miracle man tomorrow?

    A miracle from alias is highly unlikely, seeing as how he is a professed
    atheist.
