Which means nothing can be completely and objectively wrong becuase nothing becomes that until it has a situation or a reason.
there CANNOT be levels of truth if there is no absolute truth.
because, without absolute truth, there would be no authority to show how true something is.

Killing millions of people For Fun is always wrong.
the For Fun part is included in that.
because "killing millions of people for fun" is always wrong, there can be things that are objectively and completely wrong.
besides, that was just an example.
if everything was relative, you couldnt say that ANYTHING is wrong.
survival would be no better than destruction, etc.

I think Dual booting both Windows and Linux is the best option.

Linux is the best for servers, Windows is perhaps more convinient for home use.

I heard somewhere that there are now viruses that can attack the Linux OS....I knew sooner or later it would happen.

Hehehe. You surpass yourself, young lad.

LK, you never fail to provide me with a chuckle.

Thanks for making me laugh again

There's something about your special blend of a completely authoritative style with total and utter lack of clue on the topic at hand that just brings a smile to my face every time.

Linux is a Unix.

Since Mac OS X, all apple systems are now based on Unix as well.

So you could say at this point, it is Windows vs. Unix in the OS wars.

You could also say open-source vs. proprietary.
