| On December 15, 2006, the FSF launched its BadVista.org campaign to advocate
| for the freedom of computer users, opposing adoption of Microsoft Windows
| Vista and promoting free -- as in freedom -- software alternatives. Two years
| later, the campaign has nearly 7,000 registered supporters, the name Vista is
| synonymous in the public eye with failure, and we are declaring victory.

Declaring victory after the competition has smashed your face into mush is a
common trait of a mindless zealot. You also see it in the Middle East, with
Hamas and Hezbollah.

Don't worry about it Hadron, it's just one of the many, many things that whoosh right over your head.

He has not snipped *anything* at all from his reply to *your* post.

Are you really *that* stupid or is it just your usual dishonesty, Hadron
Snot Quark?

Qook really needs to take a break. Going away totally would be even
better. That boner is something ultra-stupid, even for him.

Hey Quack. Since you keep getting your ass handed to you, why not
declare victory, claim you already "schooled" everybody here enough,
and go away before you end up any worse off than you are? Like you've
done in other groups.

No thanks. I enjoy you "me tooing" and crowing despite the facts. Now run
along and teach Peter about Gimp layers or the vmware install scripts.
