Words mean things. Everyone has to agree what those things are. If your definition of a word doesn't match the rest of the world's definition, you have a problem, not the rest of the world.

What about the word "theory". I think that most people in the world would use it incorrectly, but it doesn't change the meaning of the word.

I myself use maybe 10%. There are parts (of Windows Vista) that I have never explored and will never explore. I just do not need all that functionality.

Yes, but who is to say that every user uses the same 10%? If most users only utilise 10%, I would think that these 10% segments overlap enough to cover a significant proportion of the total function of the OS.

Last I checked you can't use a debit card over the internet...

You can't use an EFTPOS card over the internet (eg Maestro) but you can definitely use a debit Mastercard on the internet. Also, in Australia at least, you can't get a debit card until you are 18 (with most of the major banks).
