    I know exactly what you mean, I was on another forum the other day, and some dumb 05'er made a thread saying 'Microsoft should buy Apple and Linux.' After three people stated that you can't 'buy' Linux, and it is only a kernel. Somebody follows up by showing us a link to buy SuSE online.

    Or perhaps they're people who've been indoctrinated by Microsoft and need to be cut a little slack... :P
