Ok, It'd probably be wiser to ignore this guy, but I don't want to. So instead I'll waste my time on a lengthy reply that won't get read... sigh.
|LOL!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen: I present you a fanboy. Note how I just made a simple remark and see the kind of response I get. I even got called a stupid.|
No, you didn't. I said that it was stupid of you to use the phrase "show your true colours" because it doesn't fit in the context. To show one's true colours is to reveal e.g. a part of yourself you've hidden from view. I'm openly anti-microsoft and have been for a while (long before I started using Linux, by the way. I just didn't hate them as much before). Therefore it's wrong to say I've shown my true colours just now, because I've never hidden that fact about me.
|Go play with your Linux box, fanboy chirsname.|
I don't know who is being referred to as "chirsname," but if it's me, then my response is that I would, but the incompetents who my parents bought that box from are "fixing" it (they've had it for a month as of Wednesday. To fix a fucking video card. I could have done better, i.e. replace the damn heatsink and fan
, it takes five minutes!). Anyway, so I'm stuck on windows.
|Let the rational discussion to people who can control their temper.|
No. I could snidely say "then why are you here?" but that wouldn't fit the mood.
|If you read earlier posts, you'll see that I praised Linux's kernel and Compiz, and I acknowledge that MS copies features from Linux.|
Don't deny that you were clearly trying to appease my great anger (I'm a loose-cannon, uncontrolled beast of a man who eats people) because you fear for your life because I've perfected the art of turning up the brightness on people's monitors to such great heights that their heads explode.
|Or were you too enraged to notice?|
What? Haha, what am I supposed to be Leonidas or something? I'm not kicking you into a well (hard though I try :) ), so calm down.
|And to enrich your knowledge: The English language has something called metaphors. "showing the colors" was intended in a metaphoric context.|
To enrich your knowledge,
1. you don't capitalize a word after a colon
2. metaphors is plural, so why is "something" singular?
3. there's no such thing as a "metaphoric context" despite how cool that sounds.
Don't argue with me on English language, it's my forte (even though that's a Latin/Italian word)
Firstly, why does that make me close-minded? I would have thought that a willingness to try new things implied open mindedness.
Apparently wikipedia agrees with me:
|Someone who has an open mind is receptive to new ideas or information.|
I was willing to try Linux, Minix (which you've probably not heard of), OpenSolaris, BSD, etc. Doesn't that show that I'm open minded enough to accept that another OS might be better than the one I used at the time (windows)? I could accept that windows is better, but in my opinion, it is not. Technically, it is not. So I don't.
Also, what is a F A N B O Y? Is it an acronym for something? Freakishly Awesome Noun for the Best Of You :l (yeah, that's terrible, but I'm in a bad-pun-making mood).
|Oh, and reinstall your Windows box as it is clearly broken.|
Yes, because clearly a bug in the interface means the hardware is faulty :l
Does that mean if I write a program that uses up too much memory, I can just blame the manufacturer of the memory for letting me use too much?
