Don't you mean a *large* grain of salt? Do at least get your terminology right.
A powerful statement of *what*, may one ask?
Of course. My kind. Pretty ordinary, not greatly experienced in computer use of any kind, but willing to have a go and learn a bit.
What cult? I thought this discussion was about computer operating systems, not religion.

No, they like stability to the nth degree.
No, it isn't. Where are you getting this silly rubbish from?

What's weird about it? A little harder for the average user to do, but why weird? Time-consuming, to a degree.
Bullpoo. You obviously never laid eyes on it, or you're a liar.
Why do you need to fic something that isn't broken?
Nope, it just means there are several different package managers. It doesn't prove any point about mess. All it proves is that Linux has several different package managers, each one catering to the needs of its distro.
Why should it?
Why should it?
How about it?
No, they are not. They all work.
Obviously, it can.
It isn't. It's almost certainly overtaken that of the Mac.
And we are supposed to believe you are honest, just because you say we're liars? Doesn't work that way.
At the moment, because MS has such a hold on the market, and therefore there are a great many desktops to replace. It isn't going to happen just like that.
Because they like it, need it, want it. Why do people spend money on Linux instead of Windows? It suits their needs
Personally, I don't see what he has to do with this particular dsicussion.
So does Linux.
Wrong. If Linux didn't work, I wouldn't be posting this, since I'm writing it on a linux box. Mandrake 10.1 Official Powerpack. Very nice it is, too.
Now you want to talk about singing? We're talking about linux, you boob. I think I smell a troll, and not a terribly good one at that. Certainly not in the least original. Don't you trolls ever think of getting a new script out once in a while, instead of boring us with this tripe *again*?
Now, push off.
