//And you're retarded. Look at how many folks build their own computers....they don't come with OS'. I've built probably 12 systems for my own use, sourced all parts, assembled, installed OS, etc. etc. I'm the only one of my several-dozen-close-friends that has ever done this. 98.9% of people who use computers buy them already built. If you don't believe this, then you are the one with severe learning disabilities.

Away from Linux on the desktop. It is pure fail. I've tired every distro under the sun, and none of them are as consistent and as useful as Windows or Mac OS X for anything outside programming or l33t h@xorz. Don't listen to the freetardian chants of "um, security! Virus! Blue Screen!" Anyone with half a brain can secure a Windows box with two or three free apps. Same with OS X. Desktop linux will be a daily battle for you to turn work around to your non-linux customers, I promise you. They will soon stop putting up with the bullshit.
