Hello Everyone, I'm Aaron. My Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
, you may want this by the end of this.
Lord Kalthorn, I'm going to call you Lord K from now on.
Ok, Now I stumbled across your little forum viva google, this forum that is. I took the time to read this thread and I laughed my ass off! The things that were said in here are just so funny! It's like a really funny comic with out the visuals. Lord K your my favorite character, your ideas are priceless. I loved this so much I took the time to make a account on here just to talk to you. Now that devotion! Anyways, you seem to have a idea floating around in your head that the all the computers are running or dependent on Windows. Thats not only stupid but statistically wrong. Statistics say that the average Desktop computer is running Windows based on a query of computer that connect to certain sites and boxed Windows sales. That query is bias, it doesn't take in account for the computers not connected to the internet, and that the majority of people that use Linux don't buy a boxed Linux distribution, they simply download it from a ftp server. It also doesn't take into account servers, and routers running on other OSes.
I'm not saying that the majority of people are running Windows. In fact I would be surprised if a different OS was dominate. I'm just saying that the web is a complex network of servers and routers connecting you to your destination. For me to be on this site now I'm connected through my computers proxy, to my routers proxy, to my ISPs local servers and switches, then connected to my ISPs Central Location, which connects to another set for routers then finally to this sites router/switch/hub, on to the server, then to the site. I can guarantee that I've traveled through over 5 linux servers or linux-based routers. I no 4 for sure, My computer, my router, my isps local server and my isps central location server. I was actually surprised to find that this site is running on Windows 2000 but not surprise that it's running Linux/Open Source software to host this.
Hey, Lord K, did you know that Microsoft is running its very own servers on linux? Don't believe me? I have proof: Microsoft enlisted the aid of Akamai. Akamai runs linux servers. http://pclinuxonline.com/article.php...1e524308d07bcd
Also Microsoft brand routers run linux. Talk about a jaw dropper?
Oh, Lord K, You know your website: http://playfordnet.com/
? Well guess what. It also is running on Linux. Your servers IP address is 22.214.171.124, if you need proof for this also, here you go. http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph/...layfordnet.com
Hows your opinion of linux now?
Also check out my blog post I did on this page.
Also Lord K, I'm a very nice person. I just don't like when people bash something that they clearly have never used or at least taken the time to learn about. I'm not trying to single you out ether just trying to open your eyes to the world around you. Personally I wouldn't care if you never use linux in your life just before you bash the compition learn about them. Also I would take a look over at apple.com, because they have improved greatly in the last couple years over they're previous OS 9 and below. Other facts that might interest you, I also am only 16. Second I can't wait for Longhorn.
