    Hey dude,after so much frustration with MS

    Operating System,plus the price to pay to fix

    so called “vulnerabilities”,let's face dude as

    learned Oscar, mentioned security issues,what

    a headache has it been for me the overpriced

    Windows Vista,what a flop?,bag of crap.

    As far as I know,your boss B Gates or idiot

    Steve B, never apologize or admit the crap

    of that lousy platform, that is Vista or “hasta la Vista”

    and what was that baby or a sick puppy.

    So you dude that pretend to be IT pro-evangelist

    or a preacher of useless MS-OS's.

    As Oscar laughs,I'll go and buy myself Mac's latest

    operating system,cheap and effective,but,still

    Linux for me,as born again Linux user forever.

    Repeating Oscar's slogan

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks

    Grateful Linux User forever.

    Microsoft Sucks

    Linux Rocks
