hhookk warmly greets my first RHat post How the hell would you know MyronASAP? Your complete lack of knowledge is very useful for our assesment of the redhat stock.

I apologize. Obviously you want to only hear one side of the story. Good luck investing with that "complete lack of knowledge" of opposing views. Myself, I have never told one linux poster to not post on MSFT board, instead I have said how much I appreciate them. I continually learn about stuff I readily admit I don't know much about.

Speaking of which, my college degree in finance tells me you are investing in a stock with a billion plus in market cap and very little opportunity to make money on a FREE product. But I want to retire early and you want to feel like you were right as you beg God that they have Social Security when you finally can't work anymore.

If linux is so far behind can you kindly tell me what windows can do that linux can't?


Make Microsoft a billion dollars a year in profit! Now that's what you invest for....PROFITS. But I don't need to tell a know-it-all like you that.

How about, provide you with a support team of everyone you work with or live next too.

Maybe having top of the line programs, games and educational software is an issue for some people.

Maybe a little Plug n Play with all the top hardware on the market would be considered beneficial.

How about simplicity. Everyone uses it and it comes on virtually every computer sold in the world.

Maybe built in software that handles photos easily or plays music is appealing.

Familiarity, used it for the past 15 years and use it at work.

How about the fact that I can buy an incrediably inexpensive computer at Costco and Windows comes pre-loaded. I can walk to the next table and buy additional hardware the works. Down the isle is tables full of software that runs on...............WINDOWS.

My investment of time will pay off because Windows future is much brighter then Linux. If all the people out of work in the world walked in and told their potential boss they don't know anything about Windows because they have used Linux the past 5 years, buzzz wrong answer... NEXT APPLICANT PLEASE. Check the want ads. 99% of all jobs don't ask for Linux experience.

And all the corporations have accounting departments begging for Linux because then know of virtually no major accounting programs that run on Linux.

Oh YES, Microsoft Office the number one program in the world does not run on Linux.

Ill tell you one thing linux can do that windows can' 1000 days with out rebooting.

Yes 99 on the list of the top 100 things consumers want in a operating system, run 1000 days with out rebooting. Gosh, poor old dumb Myron has only helped about 10,000 people with computers in the past 20 years and not one person has asked for a computer that runs 1000 days without rebooting.

I am too dumb to tell a bright person like you what consumers want in an operating system. (hint: it's the one all those dumb consumers freely give green pieces of paper with pictures of Presidents on for)

People spend BILLIONS of dollars every month just to say, "guess what you are wrong and Microsoft is RIGHT".

I love it when ppl who know absolutly nothing about a product and have obviously never used it say things like this:

I may not know Linux, but I know a lot about investing and Microsoft. You would be wise to learn.

just having fun,

I am trying to average about 6 recs for each post I have these days just to make sure I don't post a lot of garbage. As you can tell I won't be posting here anymore. But, what do you guys care. You can always agree with yourselves. Myself, I like a good arguement. I kind of enjoyed the give and take with you guys. Don't feel bad, I don't give enough recomendations to the opposing views on the MSFT board either. ADIOS
