I would rather pay $300.00 for 3 Linux Distros than be given Microsoft
Windows for free.

How the hell M$ sold so much software is a mystery to me. It's really
pathetic stuff. The detractors of Linux say it comes with no applications.
Are these people brain dead? All Linux distros come with C, C++, Python and
Perl. All you get with M$ is Visual Basic. I'd rather use my K+E Log-Log
Duplex Decitrig slide rule that that stuff.
