Linux is not a windows replacement. Don't treat it as one.

Yup. Alot of people are thinking that linux is ment to replace windows. Which kinda suck since then they want all the things windows has just to make it easier to use for someone who has been using windows all his life.

edit: ofcourse it would be best if linux would be a little more userfriendly, but their intention isn't to copy windows.

http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW1.htm

That more or less sums up my view. Long read, but excellent article and point.

Mixx, I'm busy as hell, I'll be on once in a while to help with OS problems, programming stuff, or debate politics, but really don't have much time. None of us oldies do. =P

It would be a lot easier if you guys had an IRC channel.
