:B :cheers :s :-D

I can not wait until the day when I'm out of school, and am sitting in a cubicle coding all day. I want to do it for Linux, it's just that I'm not "there" yet. I will be. :)
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

Could be a good thing or a bad thing depending how you want to look at it. :think:

One of the good things are the way it looks and feel. So MS has to bend their rules to make it look like Linux in order to succeed but since is like Linux cannot sue Linux for copyright infringement. One of the bad parts is... once MS start collaborating with Linux they will weasel their way into it to own it; and that is what I am afraid of. :( In another hand, depending how the hand is played, Linux might end up inheriting MS by MS adopting Linux code :lol: and that will be the end of it.
