    Linux isn’t about being vs. anything. Linux is about being the best OS that the developers want it to be. Linus in almost every interview says that he doesn’t think about microsoft or windows much and just focuses on making Linux the best it can be.

    And the only competition you’ll see is from the capitalists. And not everything is about marketing. There *is* life beyond the dollar. And believe me its nice.

    Debian is *not* about being anti-Miscrosoft, although most of us aren’t sympathetic to the crappy OS monopolist. This is irrelevant nevertheless. Debian is *not* a windows killer and it will never be. Debian is a OS by the people and for the people that follows it’s strict ethics and is not driven by money.

    Debian is a superior OS for it’s own merits. Remember before most of us got here we were using Windows, Mandrake, Redhat or Suse.

    I didn’t install Debian because of the lovely grafical maintainer nor for lovely automatic hardware detection (*grin*).

    I learnt to love Debian using the stable release on servers. No fuzz, just the basics. At that time I was runing Redhat and Mandrake. Guess what partions got assimilated? :c)
