    The source is my Assistant manager who took his interview & i was there. Want me to give you full info on him so you guys can come up teaching us how to respect privacy & all that….??

    And Adnan it’s the matter of perception about churning crap? Others may have same opinion about you. And because you are already famous among authors for useless tit for tat comments, that’s it from me. You continue. Also, please don’t ask for our any email regarding you as someone asked info/source on this poor NED student. But just read these links. I am not VISTA’s enemy. I had a point of view about a certain aspect in it. Its not my mistake if you took it other way. Hope you don’t want me to remind you the GRAZ topic. Now please don’t come defending that. Anyways, check these if you as much time as for replying, besides reading your own link again. You are a nice fellow its just that we have to choose 2 or 3 things out of 100 that you say. Its tough but we love you. Happy commenting. Few links may be old.. Do read carefully what critics have to say on it.

    And this not so good one for Vista

    All in all if you again couldn’t get it from J Alichin. Do watch MAC video’s apart from Kadaitcha link. I pray to ALLAH you get the point now.

    @SUFI: …hahah..
    Are you an author here ? You must be joking right, asking me to shut up. Come on. No one is contesting. Change the way you take things yaar. Seriously. How you can promote freedom of speech like this to others even if you differ to their opinion or think it’s stupid. Relax..

    Back in 90s, few guys started a community/movement to promote Linux/Opensource in Pakistan called PLUC[Pakistan Linux user community] and I was one of the early member of that group. We did arrange few initial meetings as well but things are not as easy as they appear still those guys managed to arrange local copies of lots of linux distro within Karachi. The community also has a website http://linuxpakistan.com and they are successfull to create awaareness among Pakistanis about opensource and Linux. I am not in touch with those guys much but i hope fawad,basit uzair and bilal will still be trying their best to promote Oopensource and Linux and Pakistan and If I am not wrong,umar is also with us since beginning :-)

    LinuxPakistan has made tremendous efforts in promoting Linux in Pakistan.

    @Adnan
    you should better know Linux is not just about Gnome or KDE, the best thing is, it gives us choice and also free doesn’t mean low quality, Linux is still rock solid. Let me give u an example talking about UI, linux has got the conecept of virtual desktops from ages and still Windows is not able to implement it.

    Mohsin, I was just making statment that many things in current Linux’s desktops were copied from Windows. I never said that Linux is all about KDE or Gnome but end-user can’t make any difference while interacting with different applications installed on machine. They just want a user friendly interface to acomplish their tasks thats it.

    linux pakistan has indeed played an important role in promoting linux and OSS in pakistan. I know Fawad he is my good friend. I was associated with linux pakistan for many years but then slowly due to my involvement with other things i have totally withdrawn from it.
