I’m not making a political statement, so no hate mail please. It’s just what came out of my warped mind.
Tried Linux, still wastes more time that DOS or Basic back in the day. And less works with it then DOS or Basic.
I wouln’t bring that up in front of Bob…
Sounds like someone hasn’t used Linux since version 0.1 alpha…
Hey Van: Do yourself a favor and get a live CD or USB key of Ubuntu. It doesn’t require installation and runs great. Get with 2011.
Been part of the Linux 1% for over 10 years :-P
Although if you count Android as a Linux variant it’s not really a small number anymore
I love it….Bob as usual completely oblivious of what is going on in the World.
As for Linux, it is great to keep older systems useful. I have a 6yr old laptop that is running Ubuntu 10.04LTS and it runs great. In fact I use that ol’ laptop when I am getting my chemo treatments….It does everything I need of it, even if it is doing my homework (it came with Open Office as part of the package) that day.
Yes I like Windows, but I can’t say Linux isn’t a decent OS..
On the left side of my desk is my Windows 7 desktop. On the right side is my Gentoo NAS.
So I suppose I half count as only of the 1% :p
i use only linux in my home
That is EXACTLY what we should have expected from Bob!
There are real reasons to use linux, and there are also real (and bogus) reasons to stay with Windows. What you do is up to you.
