    Lol - stupidest article ever.

    Alan Turing, the inventor of the first computer as we think of them today was British. Therefore, computers are a British invention.

    This would be certainly true were in not for the Linux project’s seductive Marxist ideology and the effect that it has on ‘Blue-State’ liberals.
    Sorry, but would you rather pay £300 for an inefficient, buggy OS riddled with security flaws and viruses, or nothing for an OS for which the number of compatible viruses can be counted on one hand, without even resorting to binary?

    The American software industry is worth more than $7 Billion; Introducing a foreign product like Linux which is often copied for free could threaten that entire industry. A generation of computer users might get use to accepting foreign software hand-outs rather than paying for a superior American products
    It would only threaten Microsoft, who are so rich anyway, and are probably making a bundle on XBox games. The only reason it would threaten the industry is if everyone used it and all software companies were too stupid to make Linux compliant software.
    Even if that were the case, you can get Windows emulators - the only company at any risk would be "Microsoft", and I doubt it'd do too much damage to them.
    Secondly, Linux isn't always free - you are allowd to sell it as long as you provide the source-code.
    Thirdly, see above for why "Superior American Products" in this case is an oxymoron. Infact, it is in most cases. American engineering is meant to be terrible.

    These days computers control everything from TV stations to battleships; Our crucial information and defense infrastructure is built on computer technology. If we allow this cancer into our networks, there is no knowing what the effect might be on our infrastructure, but that is just what liberals are trying to do.
    There is telling - it'd be much jmore secure. Hell, I'd be surprised if any such security systems were running Windows instead, anyway.

    Imagine if the State of the Union address were hacked because the TV station decided to save money by using Linux?
    Funnily enough, it's harder to do in Linux.
    Imagine if a stealth-bomber crashed because it’s software was written by anonymous Chinese or European hackers. It would make as much sense as inviting the French to come over and take over the White-House.
    As does this argument.
    "Oh, no! It's written by Johnny foreigner!" So what? If you're incompetent to not check the code over before implemnting it into something so crucial, you deserve whatever concequences there are.

    If you guessed it was Linux you would be 100% right. Osama uses Linux because he knows designed to counterfit DVDs, curcumventing the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and defraud companies like Disney.
    WTF? That sentence makes no sense - this is purely insane. Linux is not designed purely for piracy, and it's not like piracy isn't stupidly easy on Windows. Also, why would he want to copy disney DVDs?
    This is another knee-jerk propaganda thing like "Music piracy supports Terrorism" - How the hell does getting something for free give money to Terrorists?

    Next time somebody asks you how Al Queda agents pay for their rifles and rocket launchers, you can tell them that foreign hackers make software called Linux which helps them steal from Americans.
    Actually, they get there weapons because the Americans (and possibly the British among other countries. I'm not trying to be racist here) sold them the weapons years ago.

    But there is something you can do to help keep American #1 in the computer business:
    Hmm... I wonder what all of the Japanese, among other, development companies would say.

    I shold note, that I am actually not a Linux user, BTW, but other people are (especially those doing the computer science course at this Uni, because, guess what, Linux is great) so I know of some of the advantages. Most come simply by understanding the concept of open-source programming.

    To summarise "Shelly The Republican" is trying to spread ridiculous propaganda, and is dumber than a lemon. Not even an over-clocked lemon.

    oh -_~ you are harsh toward poor shelley

    did you read some comments too ?? some are interesting : example :
    "Yes, Linux is a primative European clone; It is much less capable than Windows. In fact it omits features that were standard in Windows back in 1998; For example Linux has no built-in anti-virus or anti-spyware software.
    You cannot even buy popular utilities like Norton Security to compensate for this fact. There are no tools for common tasks like defragging a hard disk. God knows what you would use to send a fax or make a website. You cannot even get Front Page for Linux."



    and what tristan said there is true !



    here are some in-depth articles about linux : http://shelleytherepublican.com/cate...chnical/linux/

    Nope

    For example Linux has no built-in anti-virus or anti-spyware software.
    Nor does Windows, or at least not Windows XP.
    You cannot even buy popular utilities like Norton Security to compensate for this fact.
    No, but Norton is shit. You can use other programs. They may not be popular, but they do the job perfectly well.
    There are no tools for common tasks like defragging a hard disk.
    Bullshit. They are such tools. Maybe not "common" in the way that every kind of Linux has it, but they are still there.
    God knows what you would use to send a fax or make a website. You cannot even get Front Page for Linux."
    Frontpage is shit aswell. Personally, to make websites I used notepad.

    Also, need to add in a bit about stability:

    I have had many crashes on Windows this year, but my server at home runs on Linux. It does a hell of a lot of work, but hasn't crashed for 4 years - and it's been on all the time.

    The only reason I use Windows is because of gaming - but you can run nigh-on any Windows program on Linux is you use and emulator - so you have all of the use with much fewer security risks.

    come on, i didn't have any big crashes under windows for years !... and using windows programs via an emulator is a last resort only

    norton is not shitty though, it's one of the best antivirus/etc available for windows

    How can she think that this is what British people are like, these two are characters from a fucking TV show. OK, I'm aware that Shelly didn't write this, but as a testament to the stupidity of these people, just look at all the spelling mistakes and gramatical errors in the article.

    Seriously, this bitch infuriates me, I find it impossible to believe that a person like her can even exist in today's society.

    Here is another gem of an article.

    This brainwashed bitch is so fucking racist, so full of herself and so over zealous, it boggles the mind.

    Lucky bastard.

    Why so?

    No, it is incredibly shitty - it is a memory bitch. It eats up memory and processor power like there's no tomorrow, it's too difficult to turn all of the annoying settings off, and it costs shitloads of money.
    I rather go for the free stuff - it's free, takes up less memory, and I can actually customise it the way I want.
    I'd say Norton is one of the worst commercial virus scanners for Windows, to be honest.

    I decided to start my European adventure in the United Kingdom. This country consists of England, the Channel Isles as well as Scotland and Wales which are independently ruled in way that they have their own government and own laws.
    She missed out Northern Ireland. Idiot.

    sheep’s
    Idiot.

    English - Scottish
    The same rules follow for pretty much any northern part of England (no, Manchester is not north)

    No wonder the people here are so fat.
    Yes, because no-one is obese in America (or, as they like to call it "Freedom land")
    At this point I wondering whether this site is sattire or ridiculous stupidity.

    There is no denying Scots are ugly and bad mannered.
    Replace "Scots" with "Chavs/Neds/Charvas" and you have an actually correct setenece.

    As a complimentary beverage he would serve me a lemonade called Irn Bru.
    I demand this womans execution for disgracing Irn Bru in that sentence.

    poisonous chemicals which are causing cancer
    If it was carcenogenic, it wouldn't be sold. Score 1 for lack of common sense, morons.

    London is a very dangerous place.
    Now I'm certain it must be sattire. Or at least this article is. The Linux one still just seems idiotic.

    I want to end Part 1 of my travels with yet another picture of fine British citizens.
    Yes, absolutely certain. No-one with a brain cell would use characters from Little Britain to represent the rest of us.

    I want to end Part 1 of my travels with yet another picture of fine British citizens.
    Still, atrocious grammar.
