Is whatlikesit12345 and chaoskid03 the same person???

I've seen them responding back adding to questions by each other like this all the time...

How does chaoskid03 know what's going on with whatlikesit12345's PC unless they're using the same one? or the same person?

"I acduantly went to a site..."

You should try accidentally going to English class. j/k. :)

*and*

If this was the result of installing an app and spybot's not getting it out, you may have to manually clean out all the files, references and your registry entries. (I am not advising you to do this, as it can be dangerous)

of course you can play mp3s on Linux. mp3 is just a data format, not an executable.

No, Actually there isn't even a GUI for Linux, no mouse compatibility, no printer support, and definatly no sound. You are lucky if your network card gets recognized, and even luckier if you computer doesn't explode.

Bill Gates has done a lot to get computers into the average person's home. I applaud him for that. Of course, I don't agree some of the techniques that he used to do that...

But anyway, what I'm trying to say is that while I love Linux and everything, I still believe that Windows has a very important place in the market. If they'd just change some of their licensing issues and open up the system a bit, I'd like them a bit more. :-) I definitely don't believe that Bill Gates needs to be "eliminated."
