Description:

For people who like to customize there linux desktop to look like anything they feel like: I put this WinFlag out, which goes very nicely with dockbarx.
For the people who hate operating systems: Good Job on being so cool!

So far I\'ve released the WinOrb and now the WinFlag. I\'ve been working on an Ubuntu logo for the die hard ubuntu users, but I\'m still a fresh GIMP user so its gonna take some time. Good things take time.


Directions:
-go to gnomenu properties
-install button
-find the file and hit open

Don't worry about people complaining about it looking like winblows. I use such clones like this on alternate user accounts to show friends how customizable linux is. I also have friends who want to switch to linux but are reluctant to leave their comfort zone, and clones help "ease them in" to using it by making everything as close to what they expect it to be as possible. It's the primary way I get people interested in trying something new, by making it appear the same.

It is not about hating an OS, it is about hating to do gratis advertising for a corporation we despise.
It was you who said that GNU/Linux is about freedom. So what do you think, should I, as a freedom lover, accept people wearing nazi symbols or such? I don't think so, they are most probably the enemy, or at least enemy sympathizers, which makes much the same...

Corporations like Miscrosoft or Apple (and quite a lot of others) take away our freedom, or at least they are trying to. And THIS is the reason why many of us don't like to see here no Windows flags, nor bitten apples. Not because we hate Windows or Mac OS, but because we love freedom.

I will try to avoid being philosophical, but I'm not perfect.
Pardon any digression.

I have never met an adult that is truly an adult. Every single one has a major fault, which is normal, but what is even worse is that this fault is ignored. Most people don't want to fix themselves, slowly they are driven to become selfish and taught to take what they can and to protect it.

Microsoft and Apple are businesses that want to grow and take over their industry, but what they provide is also a tool that is necessary in every day life. Ubuntu also provides that tool.

Now you say Microsoft and Apple are marked by symbols. I personally find associating people and things with symbols to be idiotic. It sounds childish.

Credit should be given to those who make symbols, but this symbol does not belong to that person forever because when that person dies everyone will use it.

The symbol I posted up, I don't see it as being windows corp. I see a nicely colored flag. I appreciate art for its strange beauty, which is why I also plan on making my own symbol that everyone can use.

Exactly, we HAVE freedom. So let others be FREE to customize their systems however they want!

I think he did a nice job on the logo, I will probably never use it but he's still contributing to the community. And some of the community likes how Windows looks. Give him a break!

I'm so tired of all these "haters". It's giving Linux a bad name. I don't like Windows personally but I don't go around flaming everyone who does. In fact I use Windows myself for work-related programs.

I agree that it is a blatant copy of Windows and I am not even certain it is legal... nevertheless give him a break - he is only helping - contributing to the community. The more choice the better.

I was just replying to what he was saying in the description. He just got what he was asking for. And as I said, I am not a Widows hater, I am a Freedom lover. ;-)

And I believe I was quite polite. after all... It was him who was proclaiming people childish for giving importance to symbols.

We could discuss semiotics, and I believe we would even agree to some point. But I am challenging you, amoob, to go out wearing a sieg-rune, which I believe it looks quite nice outside a nazi (SS) context. Then try to explain everybody you are not sympathizing nazism, that it is just a nice thunder-like line, cool for design.

If you want to exorcize a symbol from one of its meanings, you have to give him a new one. Otherwise, the association to the well-known one is just unbeatable. You can't raise a Microsoft Windows flag and then say it is just a "nicely colored flag", with no meaning. And you know it.

I am not afraid of the looks I would get if I wore the swastika. I wouldn't even try to explain to anyone in public.

To me symbols mean very little, but to others who have been controlled all their life by narrow minded thinking will make grim associations.

Microsoft also believes in freedom. The freedom to do what they want. What makes you different? People who believe in freedom are ruled by self desire. I believe in what is right. Right means not hurting others or yourself physically and mentally.

Did I hurt anyone with this upload? If I did I will take it down.

Hvala brate. Taman sam sjeo da mu odgovorim kad vidim jos jedan njegov "winblows piece of art", a ispod tvoj komentar u kojem si stao u moju odbranu povodom onog sto sam mu napisao za ono dugme, jeb'lo ga dugme.

Ali je nekim ljudima stvarno teško išta objasniti... Jebala ga zastavica.
