Nope, but a lot of the world IS, because people like reducing a complex issue to a "yes/no" question; and certainty and verbosity are inversely related to knowledge and understanding.

Why can't the sun AND greenhouse gases BOTH be warming the climate. And if you look beyond these two, you'll find other contributors.

Even if one cause is shown to be more significant than the others, is that a reason to ignore the others? If so, pour petrol on your house if it catches fire: after all, it's on fire anyway :-/

Got to agree with this. My wife has been using laptops with versions of SUSE on it now for over 3 years, and one of my daughters has a Linux Aspire One, and both are happy with their machines. The last one is most interesting as it's a 4Gb SSD version, yet is entirely adequate for her needs (the 16Gb SD card in the slot gets rotated with others to keep the MP3 industry going ;-) They want "consumer appliances", not development machines: if you want bells and whistles then be prepared to pay or make trade-offs.

Klein bottle for rent -- inquire within.
