it's replies like this that give Linux the bad, haughty name it has in 
the non-technical community.  The following responses warning against 
asking question lest you get ignored defeat the community approach Linux

My "Foundation" verse:

every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
