    haha ... good 'ol Linux, you gotta admit the price is great! As Microsoft is cracking down on cracked copies, more people are going to be coming our way. Soon it won't be that easy to run a pirated copy and still be able to install the continuous service packs and lack-of-security updates.

    Apparaently, Microsoft's latest plan is to have people using pirated versions of Windows to hand them back to Microsoft in return for a legal version of that software. The catch is that you have to show them proof of where you got that software from, just so that the Microsoft Secret Police can go around pirate's houses at 2 am and apprehend them cloning various pieces of windows software.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    i installed linux a couple months back and dual boot with windows. only time i ever go into windows is to play games....but i'm slowly moving away from playing games too, as linux keeps me pretty busy/entertained anyways

    i plan on (eventually) completely getting rid of windows and running gentoo as my main os and a second linux distro (probably slackware or maybe linux from scratch) as a project os....to keep me busy

    i've found it takes a while to figure out things in linux, but it keeps me pretty busy learning how to do something or figuring out something new. for example, tonight i just got my graphics card working after messing around with it for weeks (simple fix....just didn't realize it ).

    install the service packs??? i've NEVER done that. hell, if i ever plan to risk my precious hard drive to a windows update then i ask you all to beat some sense into me.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    It depends what software you use, but i've heard a lot of people i know complain that this and that program _require_ SP to be installed. That's why MS used the approach of scanning for legit copy of Windows before allowing SP installs. Because they know that sooner or later you will _have_ to install it.
