Why do you guys answer Linux newbies like this?
Some people like to do that. It is a mailing list. I take nothing written here personally. I've been on Usenet, compuserve, and mailing lists for 20+ years. Nothing phases me.

This is so belittling. And why can you not just write Windows, why do you have to write windoz? Maybe the newbies never used Windows before, but OS-X for instance. Somebody asks a genuine questions and gets answers with this attitude...
Welcome to the world wide web. :) It has been this way as far as I can remember and will continue to be so.
