PROOF why Windows is the BEST Operating System; Bob dines on lobster, paté & champagne 2nite

Click image, expands.

Scrooge McDuck dives into his money; his money bin in Duckburg (the depth gauge reads 90 feet = 27.432 meters
); the Beagle Boys and their Mother, who are always trying to steal Scrooge McDuck's money.

From comic books by Carl Barks and Don Rosa, artists for Disney. Mother Beagle is a Rosa addition; Barks' Beagle Boys, who wore anagram prison numbers
(176 671 etc.) during their brief intervals between incarcerations, did their burglary attempts without Mom's leadership.

In Danish translations of Barks' stories, Duckburg is Anderby -- Goosetown.

This one ain't much -- chicken feed, U$500,000.

This proves why it's better to run Windows and maintain good user relations with Microsoft.

The scam itself made me chuckle, used to see them all the time in my old job. And with this post you solved an old PizzaQ from my side.

In german the Beagle Boys are known as Panzerknacker, Uncle Scrooge is known as Onkel Dagobert, the nephews are called Tick, Trick und Track, they all live in Entenhausen. Germans have no clue when it coms to comic books, they should leave that to us and the french.

And, yes, Windows has the best operating systems.
If you are keen on constantly updating your anti-virus software (which can slow donw the performance of the machine while you have to cough up 100 quid per annum for updates and the scanning takes ages), downloading security patches all the time like mad and worrying about your Firewall or spam filters etc etc etc then Windows is clearly the system of choice. If you have never shown any symptoms of paranaioa and would like to expierience it first hand then Windows is a goot starting point.
I would start with Vista right away. "Word 2007 has no Windows Certification. Would yo like to continue anyway ? Allow or abort ? Are you sure?"
I have moved on the the Dark Side without any intention of coming back. No Norton and Kaspersky needed over there.

I concur. I have bitten the apple, as it were, and there is no going back. In four years of owning this particular computer, I have had one tiny little virus that was immediately solved by turning the computer off, then on again, and emptying all the histories and caches before going back on the internet. Took all of three minutes, and did not have to call technical support, fork over hundreds of dollars to a tech or to Symantec, and was up and running again at full efficiency in under 15 minutes.

Justina/Kitty -- Oh I am so happy for us both! We stuck with Windows, it was a long, difficult ordeal -- but it paid off for us!

Where will you live? Will you get a makeover? Let me know all the details of your wonderful new life!

I think I'll be moving to a quiet little Dutch island in the Caribbean, and drink Caribe beer during the day, and rum at night by the beach under the moonlight. said...

Oh my god, there is a great deal of worthwhile data above!
