People who say that shit are not using Linux. They are using Windows and trying to sound like they know something about tech.

Linux users are fairly smart, and value security.

I do not have to worry too much about viruses and bot nets but that is because I harden my systems so that people looking to get in can not. We all do it. Install only the components we need. Whitelist where possible. External firewalls and compartmentalizing.

Any decent Linux guy has a system that is fairly secure.

And using filed claims to "prove" causation is questionable, at best as scientific proof!


Seeing a 20% rise in insurance claims on electronic equipment during the time of highest geomagnetic activity over 10 years seems to me to be almost everything but actual, rigorous proof.

I would go so far as to say that you are just being difficult due to the fact that you recently got schooled on the difference between causation and correlation. Now you feel the need to take down a scientific study using your new awesomeness,

I would go there but we all already know the sadness that is a pedantic AC.

Who told you that? Our society was built on the idea people should be free, meaning free from government, meaning free from politicians and muscular interests that could twist their arm to twist everyone's arm.

Correct. It was built on exactly those things.

It will be destroyed on the idea that rights are given, not recognized. That responsibility is only for the rich. That freedom is only important till someone is offended. That making everyone have an equal amount of stuff trumps recognizing that everyone is equal. That government knows best and every person and every government is equally exceptional.

Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate the way ACs are not only so free with their opinions, but I have noticed that almost without fail they always offer tons of well researched supporting facts to back up their opinions.

That coupled with their awesome grasp of humor and their perfect recognition of sarcasm makes me value opinions of ACs like you so very much.

Actually you could fairly easily set up a quick, small Google Apps Account with 10 - 20 users and use the tablets and the computers to work collaboratively and simultaneously on documents created there with very little training for the Admin or the end users. Not super powerful but probably more than enough for that type purpose. Cheap too.
