*Dear David,*

*I tried to use Ubuntu for a few months and I had too many problems and too
poor service.*
*If you tell us what specific problems you encountered with using Ubuntu we
may be able to help you resolve*

*Sometimes it takes days or weeks to get a reply. *
*Not if you use IRC help is almost immediate and FREE ! You get to save the
10 bucks :-)*

*And often with a sarcarstic   "attitude", often talking down to me, like
you are.*
*No one was talking down to you sir, it is a matter of interpretation ? If
someone is sincerely trying to help you resolve a issue and you see that as
being spoken down to that is well to say the least disturbing ! Put
yourself in the other persons shoes do you still feel the same  ?
*

*Very, very  unprofessional. *
*Again this is highly subjective, professionalism manifests in many diverse
forms and I personally have seen six year old's who were extremely
professional so again a matter of personal interpretation of events that
may or may not be. IF we were not professional enough to meet your high
standards I offer my humble apologies :-) We will try to be worthy !
*
*
No people skills.
Poor communication skills.
No customer service skills.
Very low calibre.
More like:  "Pool room-  bar attitude"
Pretty much "smart ass"  talk.
Very much unrefined- rogue  people.
*
Please see the link right below for answers to all these thank you.

*Very low on the scale of intellectual and professional development. *
*May I respectfully suggest you scroll down and review carefully the
section where it says adoption by governments:*
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open-source_software
*( This is a personal observation but I do not think any government is
going to adopt a operating system unless they have thoroughly tested,
reviwed and are satisfied with it ? )*

*And often I get an answer in "computer speak" , which a person has to
have  a degree in computer science or something equivalent  to understand.*
*Have you told the person giving you the answer the information is beyond
your comprehension and asked if he/she can maybe please converse in
layman's terms ?
*

*I am 60 yrs old and getting a bit senile already.*
*I am 53 my dad constantly tells me I was born senile but mom before she
paased away used to say I aquired it over many long years :-)*

*I am in Ontario it is now 2:30 in the morning and I wish you all a very
happy day !*
