Yeah, Mandriva 2009 was my first Linux distro, and I always advocated for it's use among beginners vs. Ubuntu. I eventually moved on to Fedora, then quickly to Arch (which I still use to this day), due in part to the reasons that subsequently lead up to he Mageia fork...I (like many in the community) saw the writing on the wall long before the fork became a reality. Unfortunate too...I loved Mandriva.

I'm certainly no fan of Google nor Chrome/Chromium. However, it's ALWAYS been very obviously faster than Firefox, in my experience. FF caught up (as far as my perception goes, anyways) with the release of Australis -- it's now about on par with chrome though still slightly slower. Just an opinion from someone who's not a fan of either browser.

I'd also prefer RHEL over all others, except for the costs (which are inconsequential to me, usually). I too get stuck trying to push CentOS...most shops I've been at want to be able to point the finger at someone, hence paying for RHEL. What's odd is, the shop I've been working at for the past year actually uses Ubuntu LTS, so I've (unfortunately, or perhaps, fortunately, in the name of expanding my knowledge) had to learn the system pretty quickly. Haven't had any problems with it so far, an actually I'm impressed with the LTS version's stability (while originally I abhorred it for no actual reason, heh). Seems like a cross between RHEL's stability and Fedora's up-to-date packages.

No matter how cold it is, it would STILL interact with light (being cold does not make something invisible). And given the number of cold brown dwarfs it would take to make up the difference, it would be virtually impossible to NOT have seen them (if they were in fact the the culprits of dark matter) as others have alluded to in this thread.

GP's attribution was in a negative light, and I (incorrectly) took your correction of that attribution as a defense of things being falsely attributed to Abrahamic religions. It's really as simple as that. I certainly didn't see you as harping on religion, and if that's the case I'd much prefer to see more of that type of "harping" going on (i.e., sticking to facts, and not emotional outbursts borne from past experiences with those purporting to be "Christians").

"Eye for an eye" is NOT common amongst those who truly follow Christ's teachings, and are not just looking for a way to oppress others and feel "holier-than-thou". In fact, (and forgive my bringing this up if my beliefs offend you) it was Jesus who said "turn the other cheek." And (admittedly unrelated) it was Jesus who said love thy neighbor as thyself, and thus, God does NOT hate gays (as so many of who you and many others view as "Christians" try to purport) or any other sinners, and he in fact loves them -- he loves us all. For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Neither does God hate pedophiles, etc. which is in the same vein as the GP's assertions of these types of people needing help and rehabilitation, vs. blind hatred for them (which -- I guess mistakenly -- is what I thought you were alluding to in your former post).

Perhaps there is a significantly larger portion or people seen in the adverse light and who I personally would not call a Christian, however, we're not all like that, and it was good -- at least for the moment -- to feel like someone else understood that.

Exactly, thank you for pointing this out and saving me the time. I know it's common and accepted to harp on religion around here, however a lot of the stereotypes are not actually factual and the product of fringe groups or otherwise misguided peoples, such as in this case.
