Pokemon was a terrible craze, though sadly I do have to admit the title theme was sadly catchy :(

Actually I disagree most Linux users seem to be married with a wife and kids (Which is why they run away to the pc for some private time) so I think you will find are not sad at all.

An m$ user would be too busy updating their antivirus, applying security patches, trying to stop Windows Media Player leaking the entire contents of their hard drive to uncle bill's paymasters, sending spam... and trolling on these forums :!:

you're obsessed with arses :shock:
you are right about the media player, it's a nightmare you just click on it and it opens and plays :shock: rather than using knosole and about fifteen lines of code to play a cd (without any sound):P

You have to click on something to play a CD? How lo-tech! What's wrong with putting it in the drive and having it autoplay like KDE does?
