"The device sports a 336 MHz processor, 2GB of flash memory, microSD slot, head phone jack, USB device and 850mAh Li-ion battery."

Sounds promising. ::)

All for $99, so the price sounds about right.

It's a fucking netbook, it's not supposed to be high powered. Besides, it's designed to be able to run GNU+Linux, which is far lighter on resources than Microshit Windows.

I'm aware of what it means for a laptop to be running Linux. I'm wondering why sokarul is asking if I am opposed to them.

I suggest working on your reading comprehension, in that case.

When did I ask if you were opposed to them?  

You see, you used the wrong definition of opposed.  That is why I had to post the proper definition.

I used the definition of opposed that made the most sense in the context you used the word. If you meant something else, you should have used it in the proper context.

So the same way you use it is wrong?
so this might seem depressing, but then what is the point of life? we live we die and the world just keeps going.

As opposed to the Round Earth model, with all the meaning in the Earth being predicted to overheat and become unsuitable for life within the next few billion years?

You probably should just give up.

Believe it or not, the word "as" does make a difference. You can't just drop words out of sentences and expect people to understand what you mean.

Believe it or not you are still wrong and you were owned.  Congrats. 

Also you used a comma incorrectly.

Maybe instead of posting "wat" you could post "I'm wondering why sokarul is asking if I am opposed to them".

It would make you look less like a tard on a school trip.

Nope.

Also you used a comma incorrectly.

I used a comma where I would pause when reading my post aloud; I believe that is the purpose of the mark.
