I would like to know how an open source operating system that has a community of total unknowns, pactching, work arounding, and supplementing constantly is a good thing. to make it work you do this you do that you utter this incantation . ..what. . . to save $89? I'm good with the household budget, and can free this amount up with some effort. I just bought win 7 64 for my first build today for that price at tiger. Since I am new and ignorant. someone help me out--hopefully not chew me out.
