OK. So we have to end up with just a warning.

For some people (like me) standard vga 80x25 mode is not enough.
I use vesafb 1024x768x32 with X driver and nvidiafb as loadable module when 
I'm not going to load X to speed up and increase vertical refresh. And I can 
not live without little tux boot logo :P
I like to have big screen.

I'm not sure. :-D
Thanks to lunar I forgot how to compile kernel or apps. : o_o
Even do not remember sites or download links I used in the past.
lin gives me every app I need.
lunar update takes care of everything when I sleep. No need to run update 
program for every single application or visit download pages.
Nothing hangs or breaks. There is no viruses or malware to fight with.
There is no need to install firewall/antimalware software or keep away from 
dangerous www pages/p2p. If something breaks lunar fix repairs everything.
Lunar _is_ for lazy people.
Sometimes I think I should go wild and install windows without 
antivir/antitrojan/antimalware/antiadaware/anti_something_else/firewall to 
feel the wildness of Internet jungle and receive some fear and troubles.
