Somewhere there's a terrorist reading your post and saying "that's what I'm talking about!".

You say that, but why have nearly all distros moved to systemd? You're saying there's not a sound technical reason for it? NIH makes sense as a criticism in a few areas, but linux distros, largely run for free by hobbiests? They're imposing it on themselves for no good reason? Really?
Agree but i've had problems with Mint for a while, and the official forums for it are dead; you're much more likely to get help on AskUbuntu or UbuntuForums, so I've gone back to Ubuntu then upgraded the ui to xfce. Problem solved! (I tried briefly but unity is still a mixture of awful and buggy).
You're stating it wrong. When someone is dead you can say what you want about them.
OEM, sure. But it's not my understanding that if you buy a PC and buy the full, expensive version of windows and the PC dies and you buy a new pc then you need to buy another copy of windows. Otherwise....why would anyone pay for the full version; you'd get the oem, right?
We're not talking about rumours here, though.
You know nothing about computers. Why are you even on this site?
So can an app.
Not really, i'm talking about chickens. Must have used a trigger word or something.
" how the hens are kept that produce your eggs"
Er... What's wrong with ethical farming? It would be nice to think that you'd not need laws for that sort of thing, but apparently some countries need laws to stop people from discriminating against people with different colour skin so you can't leave everything to the marketplace.
Yes yes yes. But they also invent cures and treatments for diseases which blight or end the lives of billions of people (over time). Put down the Russell Brand dvd and signed t-shirt for a moment, and think about who exactly would produce a cure for HIV, cancer etc if everyone can just make copies of compounds the drugs companies produced (at no small cost). Let me guess - you're going to crowdsource it on kickstarter?
Need to learn to read,dude. Second sentence.
