They won't stand a chance if they sued me.  My lawyer would destroy them.

Unfortunatelly, no...
There was never an innovation brought in from linux world regarding computers (software or hardware). The linux fanatics only know to bash microsoft and make noise... That's all they do, all day long.
And of course, immediately I say something like this, you'll see here soon enough, all the posts here will be against microsoft (I have a lot of anger against microsoft myself, but that's different). Because that's all that this so-called operating system can produce. Innovate something? Make a software that is not a copy of something already in the market? No way. But noise? Oh, yeah, you'll see...

Just cause some linux users is lamers, dosent mean the operative system sucks...

Why i run linux, is cause its free and stable compared to windows. Everything i need for it is free... mail server, web server, office applications and so on.. Ontop of this, it runs faster on my hardware... works fine even with as little as 64megs of ram..  :-)

I do also have one computer running windows, cause of my gaming needs and dvb/capturing needs...

Ok, I must admit, maybe if more linux users will be like you, I wouln't have so much against it...

But again I have to ask, my motives for being against linux is that there is no innovation from linux coming, and I love computers (loong way since I had my sinclair spectrum) so I want to see them advancing. How is linux helping me in this matter? I want to see a computer like in star trek during my lifetime, damn it... The fact that linux is running with 64 mb of ram means exactly nothing, sorry. I have 512...
You know, my sinclair had 48 k of ram, and it booted in about two seconds... For sure, it is the most advanced computer in the world...

I'm not sure my memory serves me right, but I think they own Unix - yes, intelectual property or something - (back from the days SCO was Caldera) and they want to make some money out of these rights... It's stupid and useless, but we're living in a strange world anyway. Back to the topic, some poeple suspect that microsoft is behind this, and I don't think I would be surprised to find out that it is true :-)

What if this is just a trick of SCO to know all the private LINUX users out there? :-)

Gotcha! SCO will take your $$$$$

Bullshit!

Microsoft and their non working spying OS must die.

Linux worked from day one on Windows is still crashing even XP.

LINUX is a copy of UNIX and what is Windows? A copy of everything what was invented before already.

M$ haven't really inventde something usefull that wasn't there before:
No they didn't invent the internet, no they didn't invent the mouse driven OS, they're just a gang of lawers who steal everything they can.

Yes, linux users, in defending your operating system (monolithic design in the nineties, who would be that stupid?) do what you do best, bash microsoft for all your fears and failures...
You know, that fact that I don't like linux, doesn't mean that immediately you have to tell me "that stupid xp is crashing every minute". You can do better, I'm sure...
But I think I know where this is going anyway, too bad...
