Yeah. Right. Riiiiight.
In your dreams, my friend.
Speaking of Firefox and open source software, firefox crashes once in an
hour (and even more with flash in it). I'm developing an app for linux, the
PC at work can't run a single version of linux (I tried the major 4 distros
namely, ubuntu, fedora, suse and knoppix) each of which didn't work do to
different but equally degrading bugs.

Unfortunately, the PR doesn't work that way.  Do you really want to be
buying
an entire operating system from somebody who just admitted they can't
even
produce a workable browser with all their resources?

(Note this works differently in the Linux world, where the kernel crew
doesn't
even pretend to write browsers, and the Firefox crew *just* does
browsers, and
somebody else *just* does OpenOffice, and distros (for the most part)
just worry
about integration issues, and everybody only claims to do their little
part
well)

Seriously.  I mean, just look at Linux, Firefox, and OpenOffice.
Pristine code, not a single security vulnerability between them :)
