I for one appreciate it and honestly can't understand why you would have
said that.

Yes, you have a point. This is a very helpful group, and I've received help here several times myself. What I was thinking of was in regards to Linux becoming a very commonly used tool - the way Windows is now. I still think that many on the list would just as soon that not happen. I wish I hadn't commented on that though - it obviously touched a raw nerve of one sort or another.

As for that other guy accusing me of insulting the people in this
country - that's just plain wrong.  I was referring to how we
outsiders relate to one another - the starting point is in being
guests in the country, coming from afar with a different language and
mindset.  People born and raised here are on a different footing -
naturally!  Actually, in a way, that post just proves my point - that
guy viciously attacked me over his own misreading of what I wrote.
The problem I spoke of is between foreigners, not between foreigners
and the people born and raised here!  Sort of a "best friends or worst
enemies" situation.

Anyway, sorry for that posting - I really didn't mean for that be so
inflammatory - I was just trying to explain something of expatriate
life here to someone new to the scene.
