Jesus, Thank you!! I'm so sick in tired of these "go fuck yourself" flaming answers to valid questions! Has anyone thought that maybe, JUST maybe, if forums like this were "on a whole" a bit more compassionate and helpful and less filled with this geek bully bullshit talk that, that might help the adoption of open source software? In my opinion, if I was a "newbie" and I read responses like "Ideal Linux system for newbies? I recognize the words, but together they make no sense." would tell me that this linux shit is still in a hobby tinker state and I might not want to use it because I need to actually get work done. And posting questions on forums like this is more likely to lower my self-esteem than provide me with a helpful answer. We all know linux is not in a "hobby tinker state", but stop and think about how responses like that come ac crossed to others? If we all want linux to be adopted by the masses and dare I say it, "user" friendly, start with yourself and be friendly. I know I'm opening myself up to get flamed too but fuck it. I can take it from you social retards. Just wipe the pizza grease off your fat little fingers before you start typing.

What the world *really* needs is a good Automatic Bicycle Sharpener.
