Condemned to switch to Windows
If someone were to ask me about the worst move that can be made to a Linux user, I would clearly answer: Force him to use Windows. But for Scott McCausland, the US justice has made it even more difficult, since, either he goes to Microsoft’s operating system, or he will not be able to connect to the internet.
What did you do to deserve this? Throwing Hollywood out of pocket with a movie as gross as it was bad:
Sk0t was the administrator of the EliteTorrents download site until he was arrested by the FBI. His small business earned him a sentence of five months in prison and another five of house arrest for conspiracy to commit copyright infringement and criminal copyright infringement, or what is the same: uploading the Star Wars: Episode III movie to the internet before its premiere in the cinema.
After the punishment, the penance has come. Everything that Sk0t sees now on the Internet has to be controlled by a special program that registers all the pages. And that’s where the problem begins, because Sk0t’s operating system is Ubuntu (Linux) and the program only works with Windows.
The grace is that now, our Linux friend collects donations to buy a Windows license and an Office license. Although it seems exaggerated to me that he wants to cover up to $ 5,000 in donations. May the force be with you.
