I see free software as a means to expand my knowledge. I really don't
care about commie stuff. We don't have lawyers, advertisers, artists,
social workers or cow specialists here. All we have is a bunch of kids
who code. Tell me Binu, will you be able to achieve anything with your
cow if you aren't a cow surgeon ?... contribute to free software by
coding free software :-)

fads, huh??

     If I have paid for XYZ software, It hurts to see that I do not own
it,!!! You bought a M$ cow, but you can only take the milk and the dung!!!
And you cannot milk it unless M$ allows you to!!! I donno if they will have
a EULA for the crap:))  If one has a pirated copy of Window$
.......................................!!!! . We stand for
good citizens, not pirates, we stand for *freedom* to milk the cow; to patch
the cow if it's giving less milk and and dung; and create better cows out of
it too :D

 I give up here!!!
