heh

I actually PAID for some software a while back, a NNTP server application, and got treated like a friggin' leper by several of my mates!

They were all screaming about cracks and serials being available on the net, but I couldn't be bothered doing it the naughty way and also wanted the updates and tech support.

It wasn't Micro$o£t anyway...some Canadian outfit.

I dont think I have ever paid for software, just PS2 games. And im proud of it too. Bill Gates should be forced to use a copy of Windows XP Pro on a normal computer like most of us, see how he likes that ;0

Who forces you to use Windows? There is MacOS, Linux and plenty of affordable shareware.

Actually he does use Windows XP. Within Microsoft, they heavily believe in "Eating their own dog food." Ie they have to use their own software in a production enviroment, which often means that they are runnning their company on beta applications.

I kind of like Windows XP pro, I still have nightmares about 95, 98 and ME.

all flavors of UNIX and Mak OS are fine if you don't mind not playing games and don't mind fighting a constant compatability problem.

I know someone who does run a few different forms of UNIX on his home systems just to spite Bill Gates. Lucky for him he has no life because any time he gets a new piece of hardware he spends a long time chasing down drivers to make it work. I guess if your computer is your life UNIX is da shiznit.

I can even use UNIX based systems and I much prefer Winders.

I spent nearly two years as a web hosting administrator for a hosting company supporting FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows (NT 4, 2000, and just as I was leaving 2003). I am an expert at administrating *nix products, even I don't like touching *nix on the desktop because it's a pain, and one doesn't need to bear.

Windows is not perfect, but it's pretty damn stable with good hardware with 2000, XP and 2003. But Windows just simply works, not editing this file or that file, and the work is easy to do, and can be done remotely over a VPN using scripting (within a Windows 2000 or 2003 Active Directory network), so you don't even have to Terminal into the server. The administrator tools also work over the network, but I like the script most of my common tasks.

Yea, I have to admit windows 2000 and 2003 are very stable , especially the latter.
