We are arguing about what sort of OS we ought to operate our entertainment machines with. These computers, being the product of fierce capitalist competiton and development, are so common that such a concern has meaning.

Meanwhile, the Cambodians are still desperately trying to work the communist boulder off their backs. I would suggest looking up an individual named Sam Rainsy. Apparently, unlike places like Singapore and China, this Hun Sen led dictatorial utopia is still trying to avert famine and recover from the hostile Vietnamese 'liberation'. Perhaps Mr. Rainsy will be able to institute capitalists reforms (presuming he continues to dodge further assassination attempts). Then perhaps here, as well, the debate as to which OS is 'best' will carry some sort of meaning.

The Evil One

P.S. (This is called 'redirecting the argument'. In any case, Bill Gates has done wonderful things, has become a cad, and ought to be dealt with. Of course, the U.S. government is doing just that.

As to LINUX, as I've stated earlier, if it becomes worth my while, I'll certainly use it. Untill then, it's the nasty WIN 98 for me.)
