    On April 29th, the Long Term Support version of Ubuntu will be released,
    a release that Mark Shuttleworth devoted all his time to so that Ubuntu
    will finally shoot Windows out of the proverbial window. Get it at
    http://www.ubuntu.com/ You'll be glad you did.

    What can be done with Ubuntu:

    Email
    Surf the web
    Burn CDs.
    Rip CDs.
    Listen to music.
    Watch vidoes/DVDs.
    Scan and print.
    Spreadsheets.
    Presentations
    Newsgroups.
    HTML editing.
    Games like Chess, Tetris, all kinds of solitaire, etc.
    Make videos.
    Download photos from a camera and organize them.
    Translations.
    Use a dictionary
    Learn how to touch type.
    Edit images.
    Send and receive a fax.
    Take screenshots.
    Create .PDF files.
    Create and use a data base.
    Instant messaging with over 10 different programs in one including
    Windows Live Messenger.
    IRC.
    Bluetooth.

    and much more!

    What you can't do with Ubuntu:

    Worry about:
    WPA, WGA and WAT raising their false positive ugly heads,
    DRM,
    Viruses,
    Root kits,
    Spyware,
    and
    Malware.

    The learning curve is for the pits and my investment program won't run

    Not really. If you can point and click, you're all set. You will also
    notice a question mark icon on the top panel which is the Help file. Not
    only that but when you open Firefox for the first time, you will get
    links to forums and other support web sites.

    What difference what program it is? He said his program won't run on that
    SHITTY Ubuntu so that makes Ubuntu worthless. As I said, Ubuntu is
    worthless to most because that INFERIOR OS won't run the popular software
    programs out there. Oops.

    Ubuntu is good for geeks who have no social skills and have plenty of time
    to learn cryptic line commands to waste their days away.

    Ah but you only have to learn it once as opposed to learning a new
    version every few years - and you can get another 'investment program'
    that will.

    Oops. Windows 7 won't run some fairly popular programs either - like ANY
    Office version prior to 2003. OOPS!

    It's a Windows program, dumb fuck, and, in WINE, it may very well run
    which makes your advice worthless as usual.

    The most popular programs "out there" are IM, email and surfing the web.
    Ubuntu will do all of that and much more safely than Windows.

    Never heard of cmd.exe? Never had to diagnose your Internet connection?
    Do a chkdsk? That said, liar, I haven't had to use a command line since
    2006 and I only used it then because I was getting help from a long time
    Linux user who used them. Since then, not once have I opened a terminal
    except to do a MD5SUM for the new version of Ubuntu.

    So are you saying that Windows 7 should run Office 97? Maybe Wordstar?
    Why would you expect Microsoft to continue to support and fix programs that
    are over 10 years old? What an IDIOT you are.

    Neither Office XP nor Office 2000 are over ten years old. Neither will
    work in Windows 7. You constantly bitch about having to "give up"
    expensive programs to use Ubuntu but have no problem with people having
    to buy a new version of Office along with Windows. That makes you a
    fucking hypocrite. BTW, I can run Office *anything* in WINE.

    Your comprehension skills are as bad as anyone I've seen.
    There are still MANY MANY thousands of copies of Office 2002, and 2000 in
    daily use.
    YOU'RE the idiot.

    You didn't post very man reasons. Actually, you didn't post any reasons.
    So you are full of shit as usual.

    Office 2000 and 2002 work on Windows 7. It's just the updates that
    don't apply but that's because the support has finished.

    Passwords are not remembered in Outlook. You call that 'working'? The
    fact that support has finished is a very good reason to run it in WINE.
