it doesn't mean if they get "poisoned" or not. They don't care. They don't 
even understand the difference. They don't like to learn ANYTHING.
They THINK they understand windows, and they THINK that's natural way of 
computing. They heard that linux/unix is better. That's all.

sent them whatever you think, just far away from projects like FreeBSD.
