More to the point perhaps, when do we cut their cross-posting?

I'll tell you when you tell us which 'rocket science courses' you completed.

Shush ray, this is a unique event!
A wintroll is getting irritated by another wintroll!
This could get interesting if left uninterrupted.

Let's just sit back and watch this spectacle.

None, raytard. Nor did I ever claim to.

Lopez99 didn't either. He's just a bullshitter:

* completed 'rocket science' courses, but is unable to research/install
Linux
* millionaire by age 30, but runs a $3 pirated copy of Vista
* charges $200/hr as a 'technical business consultant', but his target Linux
machine is a $25 Pentium II system
* claims to be a doctor
* $9 is $9 more than he wants to spend.

DFS you're a hack then? Nothing beyond high school dude? I thought
you were living large.


GD it doofus, we're on the same side! Team unity dude! These LInux
freaks are loving this!


Not at all easy to install either.


So? Millionaires love bargains too.


Not my machine dude.


I am.


It is.

Unity. We windows users have to show a monolithic front--these Iinux
freaks are like the proverbial herd of wild cats--they have no
discipline--free spirts all. And atheists. And evil doers, etc etc
etc.

You forgot about his complaints about wasting money burning CDs... And how
"blank CDs are hard to find"
And his constant complaints about downloading stuff via dialup.

I think Vista is nice, too. But it doesn't require expensive hardware, at
all.

I recommend at minimum:

ATI 9600 (not Pro) graphics card: $50
2gb RAM: $50
Intel P4 2.8ghz or AMD 4xxx series CPU: $100 max

You need better graphics and CPU for current games, of course.

I went a little further.




I do OK for a lowly Access/VB/Oracle/SQL Server developer.




I'm not gonna hold rank when you make bogus claims. It's not even close to
Rex Ballard-level fantasies of course (which cola "advocates" don't have the
balls to question), but you should hold yourself to higher standards than
the lying freaks of cola.




It actually is. Vista is easier in my experience, but any reasonably
intelligent person can install virtually all Linux distros (LFS and Gentoo
might require some work).





So tell us exactly how you made your "millions".

Did Dad start you off with $10 million, and through judicious investments
you turned it into $2 million?






OK. What kind of millionaire doctor has broke friends who run 12-year old
systems?





"doctor" strongly implies M.D. of course. What med school? What specialty?

If not an M.D., then a Ph.D. What discipline? What school?





Try www.frozentech.com. I sometimes buy from them rather than download
.iso/burn CDs.




I'm generally with you on this, but when you started up with the outlandish
personal boasts about income and education you lost me.

See, if you're gonna lie you need to make them really exaggerated like Rex
Ballard's or Chris Hunter's or 7's. Then everyone knows you're a clown.
