Default Re: Wooo! Linux again *says hello to tux*

Root..dont think you understand.

Tried to load the correct drivers. Windows declined these and said "its ok chap! We have those on the disk! Dont bother with the floppy!" Just a proceed and no, load drivers from floppy anyway!

So i was forced to use the xp drivers for this and being offered no option to use my own. Which resulted into it failing.

there is always a search specific location...

the exact kind of process you had to use in linux to configure any nwe device.

I find it odd when Microsoft have taken a step towards the linux way.
(having direct links to driver files to install, warning before restarting, multiuser login model, fully customisable folder rights) practically anything that Linux seemed to have had that microsoft seems to have coppied, the soon as any linux user has to go through the same process on a windows box, they feel it's labourious or they don't know how to do it properly.

I'm not mouthing off, I'm just pointing out the flaws in your obviously anti MS arguments...

I'm yet to see anywhere an actual fair unbiased comparisson of the two OS's where the reporter, or method of comparisson does not obviously favour the other.
