    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.

    You're kinda creepy.
    You get a little too excited posting to me.

    And your fixation with my external orifices is down right weird.

    I guess Glen Beck is your hero. Send him some more money or buy some

    Wall Street=investors free to make and "lose" money (course, being
    socialist now...the taxpayers got screwed anyway with bailouts).

    Bush did the bailouts. Most were paid back. Obama's plan will make the
    banks provide their own fucking bailout or go out of business. You are
    brainwashed by the likes of Beck.

    > Socialism=A lazy, non-productive society
    >


    Do you even know what is socialist in the USA? ALL the congresspersons
    are covered by socialized medicine yet the hypocritical Republicans
    don't want YOU to have that type of coverage. The first full face
    transplant was done in Spain, a partially socialist country.

    Is Joseph McCarthy your hero?

    The banks will pass that cost on to their customers...you aren't
    punishing the banks.
    And the Government will rob from that money pile like they do SSI.

    I have health care, you loon.
    Most people do...and a large portion that don't, *choose* not to have
    it.They spend that money on luxury items they otherwise couldn't afford.
    It's they're choice to spend their money as they see fit.

    This new plan...I will once again foot the bill for people who just
    don't feel like trying so hard. People who...instead of getting health
    insurance...choose to travel, or take a vacation, or buy that huge HDTV.

    > Is Joseph McCarthy your hero?
    >


    from the '50s?

    I have no heroes ... my opinions are my own.
    That's right Alias, conservatives actually "think this way" all on
    their own. I don't follow anyone, wasn't "taught" to think this
    way...it's a by-product of my up-bringing.

    Explain how the taxpayers got screwed when these are in the
    process of/have been paid back ? That would equate it to more of
    a loan, would it not ?

    You should also research 'socialism' and not rely on what others
    tell you what they think it is, even though you claim....'I have
    no heroes ... my opinions are my own.'

    Really? How much is the deductible? How much do YOU have to pay of the
    bill? 20%? Could you afford to have a triple by pass? Would your
    insurance cover all the costs? And, dumb fuck, what the hell would you
    do if you were diagnosed with heart disease and your beloved insurance
    company dropped you like a hot potato?

    Health care in the hands of a for profit company is just stupid. Course,
    you don't see any congresspersons buying insurance. They have complete
    sole payer coverage. So do I.

    If we are being payed back, why is the debt growing larger?
    It's not going back in my pocket...it will be distibuted thru various
    entitlement programs...to those that didn't pay for the bailout, as they
    don't pay taxes.

    You have no understandinig of this shit, do ya?

    Using the tax system as a form of wealth redistribution and forced
    charity is socialism, dumbass junior.
