Based on what I've been seeing lately on this list, everyone always
has something to SAY about Microsoft, but they don't offer any HELP to
DO anything about the situation.

It's turning into something similar to a political debate, but it's
all talk. Anybody can sit behind a keyboard and whine about the ways
they have been screwed in the past from other proprietary companies,
but they don't help fix the problem.

Ubuntu has the largest community of all Linux distributions. If all we
do is talk, we're no better than those other companies that lock you
into their product.

Even if you do something minor like fixing a spelling mistake in
documentation or something simple, you have provided to the community.

There's so much that needs to be done as well as there's so much that
people can come up with to make this the best free product in the
world.

It's up to you now to take the ball and run with it. Are we going to
talk about the other companies and be lemmings of corporate
brainwashing or are we going to something about it?
