Comment poison the data (Score 5, Insightful) 201

Some of use don't have the luxury of not using Windows, either because we need to run applications that are only on Windows or we work with or support others who cannot be forced off Windows. What we really need is a hardware firewall that blocks all access to Microsoft domain names and IP addresses. Or even better one that sends bad data to Microsoft. Maybe a nice little distributed computing project would be to know what data Microsoft is collecting and the write and distribute software that keeps feeding Microsoft bogus data to make their data collection less useful. If enough people ran such software, and I believe a lot of people would gladly do it no matter if the were Windows or Linux users, Microsoft might get the message and cut this out.

Comment he promised change (Score 0, Troll) 185

It is a good thing that we are no longer bothered by a Constitution and need Congress to approve such spending and our benevolent King can now do it all himself. But we should be careful, the American public isn't too bright and someday an America hating person, maybe one who wasn't even born in this country, might try to take over and destroy this country by making bad decisions that he isn't legally entitled to make.

MINT? You tell me what you use but offer absolutely no information to support it. Might as well be saying " My God is better that your God ". So I give very little value to your input. I've actually seen Mint and used the Live DVDs. As a Live DVD I like it better than Knoppix, which I have used for many years (without really gaining the knowledge of Linux that I would like). But as far as I know Mint is based on Debian and I see no reason to to install Mint over Debian. Maybe you need an install dumbed down, I don't need or want that.
