Ok, you are right.

For me, making the war against Bill OSes means using Free Software OSes
(Debian, Gentoo, FreeBSD.......)instead Bill's one. Everybody is free
to use the OS he like, so I choose FreeBSD or Linux simply because for
me they are better. I also try to evangelize my friends here in my city
to use free software, but at the moment, it has been a difficult task.

By making the war, as I stated above, I mean using FreeSoftware instead
Thanks for your response.
