    Yeah..I lost all that hacked OS work.............

    Me too .... However I hate the jackasses that spend every waking hour
    hacking the OS, to force MS into activation, AND I hate MS for not just
    charging enough to absorb the pirating... ;^i

  12. Really? That's not the impression I got when it was implemented.

  13. I can't understand why Bill Gates isn't a big enough man to admit that
    he already has enough money. What's he afraid of: that he'll be forced
    to eat McCheeseburgers, at any point?

    I just want to tell everyone I am sorry for acting like a little child. I
    will try to be more mature and responsible in the future when I am
    expressing my opinions. Please understand that I am on ridalin and my
    parents send me to counseling three times per week. However, this does not
    always work, especially when I am out of school and have a long break. I
    have alot of free time on my hands, so picking on people is often the only
    source of entertainment I have.

    Again, I am sorry for my poor attitude. Thank you for bearing with me as I
    try desperately to behave myself.

    tell me, after reading this particular piece of garbage from the doegirl,
    have you figured out that she is just cutting and pasting everything she is
    spewing?

    Please stop encouraging anymore typing from her.

    Because most Linux software is either already on the distribution CD/DVD
    ready for installation or readily available for free download. But you
    knew that, right? No need to give CompUSA or others your cash.
    OK, got me that time. Should have said I seldom use MS as I no longer
    use them as my primary OS. Having it installed and actively using it
    are in fact two distinctly separate factors. 99% or better I use Linux.

    windows messenger and that msmessenger service are two different things.
    The service SHOULD be disabled, and does not affect the use of windows
    messenger.

    I'm going to die rather sooner than I'd like. I tried to protect my
    neighbours from crime, and became the victim of it. Complications in
    hospital following this resulted in a serious illness. I now need a bone
    marrow transplant. Many people around the world are waiting for a marrow
    transplant, too. Please volunteer to be a marrow donor:

    The European Union compelled Microsoft to develop a version of its OS
    To me (in the USA) it looks like the EU has a personal vendetta against MS.
    Even though the regular version of Windows comes with a Media Player,
    there's
    absolutely nothing preventing people from loading their own favorite and
    having
    that one be the default player for any and all media files. You never have
    to see
    MS Media Player at all if you don't want to. It seems like the EU makes up
    rules
    and when MS complies, the EU adds MORE rules onto that so MS is still out of
    compliance. If I was MS, I'd pull out of Europe all together until they get
    their
    act together. Good thing I don't control MS!
