The Origin of the
One old man was so poor that he decided to send his three beautiful
daughters into the streets to make a living. Finding out about this, St.

Lindows....NO it's NOT a spelling error. It's Linux (an alternate
and almost free operating system) with a Windows looking user
interface. Mater of fact you think it's just a different screen
setup choice when you look at it...BUT it's nothing Bill G@tes wants in
your home! Cause LOTS of Micro soft products run on it, and it is
super fast and super stable. You can purchase an entire computer
with this operating system on it for the price that the M S people charge
for the newest version of the operating system. Check it out...but
don't get it unless you have some computer savvy...cause there are some
higher requirements to follow! Take me
