    But now I have to get that fu*** Vista machine up and running on the network...router, XP machines, Linux.... I had surpressed the frustrating feelings this caused inside me the last time....

    I must've done some really serious nasty things in a earlier life.... :(

    Only good thing with some parts of MS is that it has put Bill Gates in the economical position to start some health programs...:D

    hi, i find best thing to do is have 2 or more partitions on my hdd, one smallish one for the os, and on efor everything else. when u get a virus, it always (in my case's) has gone to the system partition, so i just delete that partition and reinstall it. i had avg free version which has en the best till now cos it now costs, havent had firewall for a while but not had any viruses either....i dont mind reinstallin my os when my comp fucks up cos i styill have all myt other files, and dont pay a penny. thats the best freeware in my mind, i mean how long does it take to reinstall bloodu linux...i use gentoo, personal preference but its not alot of time wasted, givs u an excuse to sit on ur arse at the computer for a while. lol. :D

    it isnt the "time" involved,,,,,,its "why ta hell should i have to do this",,,eons ago i had a virus kill my hd,,,,,,now,,hehe,,,well,,,no problems "knock on wood" ,, but i also make it bout impossible to get a virus,,,,,,,,i figure my time is worth money,,,,least to me it is :D,, and having to reinstall all the time is like saying,,,oh well,,, every time i get robbed in my house,, all i gotta do is call the cops and sign a few papers,,
    we get viruses cause of some damned idjit that thinks doing that to us ( this includes the 90% of viruses caused by "advertisings") is funny,,,,,,well,,,, if he wants to have a comedy hour starring me,, he needs to send cash first :D
    i got like 1 of those "partition" proggies,,,,,suppose to be the best on the market,,,,,never played with it tho,,,,hehe :D

    yeh but u cant stop all viruses, no software will, theres always a way around it, so whats the point in spendin ur hard earned cash of fancy products that only stop the bog standard viruses, the ones stopped by fancy programmes can be romoved quite esily anyway...if u r a computer boffin, its the realli bad ones u cant stop and that do the most damage, so if u can get freeware antivirus...do so, but dont spend lopads of cash on tryin to stop the small viruses, if the big ones get through u will soon know bout it, just delete the partition and reinstall....u dnt need fancy software to do that either, whatever os u use, just insert the disk and during setup, u can delete and create nu partitions, if r reali good wif comps, u could always ceate a virtual desktop and then when u get a virus, delete it, but u have to be a real comp boffin 2 do that, i just cant be fussed tbh. i keep my computin simple, it saves time and money, all round.

    Ubuntu Christian Edition is a free, open source operating system geared towards Christians. It is based on the popular Ubuntu. Along with the standard Ubuntu applications, Ubuntu Christian Edition includes the best available Christian software. The latest release contains GnomeSword, a top of the line Bible study program for Linux based on the Sword Project. There are several modules installed with GnomeSword including Bibles, Commentaries, and Dictionaries. Ubuntu Christian Edition also includes fully integrated web content parental controls powered by Dansguardian. A graphical tool to adjust the parental control settings has also been developed specifically for Ubuntu Christian Edition. The goal of Ubuntu Christian Edition is not to bring Christianity to Linux but to bring Linux to Christians.

    can be downloaded from here http://www.ubuntuce.com/

    Mas... Sorry I thought you were kidding. :confused:

    So, whats next?
    Ubuntuhammed?
    Ubuntislam?
    Ubuntuateist?
    Ubuntuhindu?

    I see a minor dotcom-era here....

    Well, on the other hand... since the release of Windows 95, and with the release of Vista and its bastardly offsprings, I'm pretty shure that these products are somehow connected to the dark side....
