Toshiba Portege Z830
Toshiba's Portege Z830 is cheaper, lighter, and better equipped than Apple's 13" MacBook Air

Wrong. Windows runs most *desktop peecees* in the world. NOT most computers. Real computers run AIX, HP-UX, IRIX, Linux, Solaris, QNX, AS/400, NSK, OpenVMS, MPE-iX, zOS, etc. You know, REAL operating systems, ones that don't shit the bed and blue screen when you look at it the wrong way. lol.

And more Applcations? LMAO! I run Linux on my laptop because all the applications for Windows either cost $5000 or they just plain suck and don't work well. Sorry, Windows is a cumbersome cludge with no good software.

Did you take a break from sucking Bill Gates Powerpoint to write that? Don't forget to play with his .DLL's. He likes it when you play with the DLL's. lol.

I don't know where you are getting your software from but I have never paid more then 50 dollars for software and none of my software is crappy. It always runs great and does what I need it to when I need it to.

He's talking about Windows Server 2008 as he is comparing server OSes. The cost of $5000 is correct.

Yeah...5000 bucks for Windows 2008 Datacenter...for 4 processors (Not cores, processors) may cost 5000 bucks. But that's beside the point. The argument that there are more servers using *nix is highly dependant on which method you use for determining. There are more *nix servers running in the publicly accessible space, but many more Windows servers are shipped with the OS installed than *nix. Windows outsells every brand of commercial *nix OS available by a long shot.

Besides, most of the *nix software available is pure garbage. I'll take Exchange over Squirel Mail any day. Same goes for the other FOSS server systems as well.

The biggest reason that *nix is actually *losing* commercial market share and isn't going anywhere in the consumer space is largely due to people like the *nix geeks are ignorant, arrogant douchebags who look downt their noses at everyone and like to pretend that Windows and OSX haven't changed at all since the 90s. Hell, more than half of the server uptime top 50 today are Windows 2003 servers. As a matter of fact, the FDIC won't allow Banks to use FOSS software because it's impossible to find quality support for it. You want support for a FOSS application? Find a forum and post something, hoping someone will be will to condescend long enough to give a straight answer. But don't expect to not be treated like a complete moron, cause it ain't gonna happen.

Yeah, Argon18 is the perfect example of such a fucked up Unix masturbating douchebag, even Tony Swash looks super duper smart compared to this fucking idiot.

Hyperbole much?
