    Ahhh… Nostaligia!!!!

      Taking time off from hunting down little Palestinians today?

      • D says:

        Welcome Muhammad. You and the rest of the PLO are misinformed. It is YOUR children that strap themselves with bombs to hopefully kill one jew. It is YOUR religion that promotes killing children in Russian schools. Thats why we call YOU terrorists.

        If you are not a Muslim, then I hope your skinhead Nazi ass burns in hell next to Hitler.

        I am not jewish, but I hate ignorant comments like that. You are no better than anyone else on this planet, no matter what blood or religion you are.

        Boris, don’t even reply to these goons.

          I agree with you 100% D. I’m sick of racist comments like that. My girlfriend was almost killed last summer in Lebanon by Israeli bombs but I don’t blame all Jews. Everybody on Earth is One People. We are all brothers. It’s the kind of hateful comments like from MMM that result in dead children.

    Enjoy Linux. You’ll have less windows but you’ll not risk that your house crashes. :D

    Enjoy vodka! И те бе все будет ПОХУЮ

    I bet that home is cold, drafty and completely inefficient.

  5. illlich says:

    that house looks like it was built long before windows OS even existed, clearly a joke on the part of the sign-makers.

    It is 5 star Soviet hotel with window in each suite.

    • Texas1 says:

      Sure. What kind of 5-star hotel would have those ugly dishes outside its windows?

      • Boris says:

        It’s 5 star by Russian standards, 10 star by Texas standards.

        Dishes are attractive in Russia because places with high-speed satellite internet are uncommon. Who cares that there are dishes outside, the connection speed is more important. Free satellite TV is also popular in Russia. I’ve seen 1m diameter dishes on roofs, and people don’t care about how “ugly” the dish looks-as long as it works.

    Linux is actually gaining a lot of popularity in Russia:
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=linux&ctab=1&sa=N

    One of the reasons Windows has been popular is the widespread availability of pirated disks. I have seen 233Mhz computers run the latest version of Windows XP Professional in Russia! Hardware is expensive in Russia, wage is low, but software costs almost nothing!

    But Linux can run on much outdated computers, so it will help. It can run on a whole Xeon blade datacenter to an iPod to an outdated mainframe from the 70’s! I have seen websites where people ran Linux on all 3 of these computing devices! Amazing what a non-profit software project can accomplish. And it takes advantage of every hardware part, making it efficient.

    If anyone is interested in this great new software project, get an old computer and install Ubuntu on it:
    http://www.ubuntu.com/
    For this project, make sure you have 256MB RAM and a wired network card for easy installation.

    Also you may order free CDs, but you have to make an account, which is free:
    https://shipit.ubuntu.com/

    Most software for Linux is free, so you don’t have to worry about buying or pirating software. You don’t even need virus protection, because Linux has default high security! I hope more people will switch to Linux and see how better it is than Windows. For those of you who think free software is junk, many open-source (I’m not talking about freeware-they ARE different things) programs are much better to paid programs. The browser you’re using now, (hopefully) Firefox, was originally a Linux project (until they expanded to more OS’s, such as Mac and Windows).

    • D says:

      You’re right about one thing. Piracy in Russia is widespread and nobody cares how much the software costs. But LinSux is too hard to use for most poeple and the reason it runs so well on old computers is because it’s stripped of all features that make Windows so attractive. The open-source community can preach all they want, but people that get paid to write software will always have jobs.

      • kook says:

        Your comments may have been true 10 years ago, but Linux is infact quite easy to use nowadays. The only real advantages I see over using Windows vs. Linux is the fact that not very many games are published for Linux and that Microsoft effectively has a monopoly going on with it’s office software. This is all changing though, slowly but surely. Also, you can get paid for writing Linux software as well.

        • D says:

          I don’t want to start another Linux vs Windows argument because it’s been done countless times. Bottom line is, almost everyone still uses Windows and probably will for a long time.

    The US might produce a lot of carbon, but we definitely build more efficient and comfortable homes and buildings that have much better indoor air quality than the rest of the world.

  9. Marseille says:

    There are restrictions in France too. Yes, ugly.

    Boris es estúpido.
