Someone supporting them in front of you eyes? Counter them and strike
with this article :

P.S. A counter on people who say GNU/Linux is not ready yet for
Desktop.

Nice link. I use Linux all the time, but I still feel as a Desktop, there is
lot of things to do.

I think instead of counter strike, better will be, if we can make linux more
friendly, enriched and available to everyone. I know there are free
downloads available, but I think pirated softwares are more easily available
then Linux OS. I also think that drivers for windows are more easily
available than linux as the hardware vendor provide drivers CD for windows
OS but not for Linux OS and the user has to work hard to get the required
drivers.

I generally don’t write/comment, but as I have written, I apologize if I
hurt someone.

I welcome you to collaborate on this personally with me. I am taking
up an initiative for such work and your inputs and help might be
valuable. Contact me at 9231443728

That's because piracy is some kind of drug treatment for general
public by the non-free market. They want you to have it pirated so
that they can be more popular. Licensing fees of a single user wont
make them rich but popularity of their product will make bigger
corporate licensing of their stuffs. Also even if they are available
as pirated copies, dont you still feel that GNU/Linux is far superior
in terms of stability and reliability?

That has many reasons like smaller user base and evil-pact of h/w
vendors with non-free software giants. But why not use hardware that
is supported in GNU/Linux system.

But why are you so afraid to exercise you freedom of thought. You are
posting to Passion4Freedom mailing list and you have all the right to
express your views. Your views might be questioned and can raise
debate. But that should not stop you from sharing your thoughts :)

Only one problem with your mail. P4F members call it GNU/Linux,
because "Linux" is just a kernel and GNU system is the real operating
system which uses linux as a kernel. So from now on I request you to
use GNU/Linux instead of just "Linux". See http://www.gnu.org/gnu/why-gnu-linux.html
for more

Thanks for taking my words positively. I appreciate your proposal, but
neither can I afford STD cost or my thoughts can complete in one call.

from my words.

I read your post but didn't checked that my mail will be posted at
Passion4Freedom. I am happy that now I have at least one platform where I
can post freely. I want to know your position in Passion4Freedom
Freedom of thought, I don’t think so. Generally speaking, my opinion is that
you cannot talk on what a community dislike. You can get examples from the
History (Ha, I am not a History student).


At the end:
As you have shown your interest, I am interested to write on your personal
mail id. I expect that you will allow me to mail on your personal mail id.

Best wishes,

No, basically I got your point but was trying to make you understand
why "pirated softwares" are more easily available.
