    I understand why people use(d) the software, in those days it was impossible to install Linux without using the command line, Apple was horribly mismanaged and the OS sucked (and a NeXT/Darwin computer was insanely expensive), but it doesn't mean Bill Gates is a good person.

    Bill Gates Foundation overcomes all the stuff from his past.

    Steve Jobs was evil and God killed him for it.

    Deal with it :coffee:

    I don't, but he made it nearly impossible for people to do that in the 90's. By the way, he's involved in suing Google for killing the Windows phone right now: http://opensource.com/law/13/8/fairsearch-foss-complaint He claims Android being free is an "unfair" business practice designed to kill closed source software. And for the record, I used OS/2 and BeOS in the 90's until Linux really got going with Slackware.

    I'm sorry for you.

    I did just fine in the 90s and beyond with or without Microsoft.

    People always need to have some giant evil corporation to blame for the unjust and unfair rules of life.

    Tuff shit.

    Microsoft crushed anything and anyone they wanted to.

    Its over.

    In time, they will fall.

    Don't get a tummy ache over something you can do nothing about.

    I'm waiting for Windows 9 :c

    Actually, not to blow my own horn (actually yes), but I did do something about it by cutting a check to the Free Software Foundation and Debian GNU/Linux every year for 15 years now. Considering that Ubuntu, a Debian based OS, is going to be shipping on 20% of laptops by the end of the year, and Android (which is Linux) has killed Windows on the tablet/phone, in my small way I did something.

    Gates is a thief that stole from other to get rich. Fuck Windows. Everyone should install Linux today.
