    On public forums your suppose to give someone a pass for misspelling words. In fact most forums TOS consider it a violation to point out a misspelled word of another poster, it's treated as a personal attack.
    I'm a Linux user, our version is different from the windows one. I don't like the newer setup either, liked the old one. Also, the spell checker used to be automatically installed with Firefox (default browser for Xubuntu) but last two releases, I've had to hunt it down.

    Linux, know a feel who use Linux and say it's the best browser there is. But they say it's not for the layman.

    Is Linux easy to use ?

    If everything goes right on install. Then something like Ubuntu (or Xubuntu) is easy to learn how to use. They are a windowized version. It's only harder when you add programs not in repositories (or finding a repository sometimes) or packages and you have to compile them from source that things can get a bit confusing at times. Most of the time is is just as easy to use.

    It's easy to install really and will automatically give you dual boot, so you can still boot into windows if you want while you practice up to learn. Lots of forums to help you learn also.

    I almost didn't come into the thread because I was embarrassed that I didn't know what "limate" meant.

    Yes, there should be an age limit. There should also be one for SCOTUS and all other judges as well.

They could still be president maybe and like hold off ices in the administration, but some of them are just carrying on old ideas that aren't working with the changing world

    Thoughts?
    ... you can't legislate around bad morals, they find a way to get at you no matter what rule you create to circumvent them.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
