windows and its maker a crap bill gates stole every bit of what windows is made form IBM mac Linux. so get your facts straight look up kunbuntu
care to elaborate on the lack of printers and other device driver support for linux?
it would be nice to be able to use all of the features of my printer not just the print part.
I have a friend that works for the military installing communications systems in vehicles etc, they use windows.
also care to elaborate why all of the programs rarely are complete and functional? and why none of them are a all in one program? even real player isn't a complete player for linux.
why is that there is no good software for linux?
you may hate bill but it's jealousy.
and again, installing a tar etc file on linux is a absolute nightmare. I wan't to use the computer, not basically work on it or compile the software to make it work.
if you would like to see linux used and accepted on a broad scale, tell your buddies in the industry to make the damn thing actually work.
someone shouldn't have to go to college to learn how to work a OS. that's like telling everyone they have to know how to rebuild the engine in their car in order to be able to drive it first. then telling them it just takes some "smarts" to do.
I like to use and tinker with my 3 computers. but linux is just too much of a backward f'ed up os it's a pain to learn. and nothing works with it. so again, you have to go back to a windows install just so you can use your printers functions etc. linux is stupid.
