Sorry for jumping in; people are changing rapidly these days and it 
seems as though they cannot live without their mobile phones taped to 
their ears and a tablet or lappy burning their eyes until the wee hours. 
My take for what it's worth; regardless of system used (windoze, mac 
etc) people cannot live today without these things so it kind of makes 
one think that even a 'free' system such as Ubuntu will always be worked 
upon to try and keep people glued to their monitors/tv's. We are headed 
down a very dark, twisting road because we never bother to look outside 
the window to see whats going on, we believe the news broadcasts and 
take them for granted - mostly lies of course, but when you are trying 
to turn the human race into mere robotic morons without them noticing 
it....well, that's my observation anyway.
