airiox duel booted to linux just like the rest of you and he used suse 9 as well. but face it airiox uses computer to use computers not to screw around and try to install stuff. I mean as long as people who make opensource programs continue to support windows in these programs not many people will switch becouse its alot nicer when you just go through a installer rather then have to install things from a command prompt and sometimes even compile them on linux. sure suse has its premade package format but no one makes packages for suse its always weeks before you can find a package for suse with alot of these open source programs. and when you do you have to know german in order to install the thing. I love linux and all I run servers with it but it is not likely that you are going to find a simple quick installation with it. I mean it took me a month to find all the information I needed to port a movie from a linux machine to a tv. becouse there you go again its a pain to install nvidia drivers and use all the features you take for advantage on windows in linux.

Ok, Gentoo with GUI on is just as easy to use as WindowsXP is, and it is safer, 5X faster, and prettier!! Gentoo PWNS you (Microsoft). Actually, from what I heard, IBM was switching to Linux as well, and a division of Microsoft was caught using Linux... HAHAH! Linux being used at Microsoft's HQ!! Ahahaah!

Hehe. Plus, the director of IE security was caught using Firefox at home and office.

Umm......... I happen to know a lot more about Linux then you, so that post is pointless... I'm not old enough to get certified, which is why I can't. However, you do not know enought about it, so like I said, please don't post here, it just degrades the thread in a pointless way.

Stay away from this Forum? Not very pleasant at all Rakedog To become somebody who knows anything about Linux mean they have to like it? Of all the people here I don't know many people who know more than FX about Networks and such like - which is filled with Linux stuff.

The Director of Internet Explorer Security has that as his perogative - if indeed that is true anyway. Somebody catching him specifically using it at home is unlikely. As for at Office - Firefox is installed in no way at Microsoft on any of the Computers; if you have watched anything from the CIO that becomes obvious. If he installed Firefox he'll be in trouble; which again is less likely because somebody finding him using it at home and finding him using it at Microsoft through god knows how many firewalls it would be suprising to say the least - considering if anybody did that they wouldn't be checking what Browsers people are using.
