    They finally realized that Windows was a better OS, so they mimicked it...

    LOL

    The whole point of linux is not to use windows, why would you want it to like windows?

    I am testing the accuracy. I have WinXP on my notebook. There are some better KDE styles and themes, but the WinXP theme is good too.

    I don't mind MS Windows, that's why I have a duel boot setup. Sometimes I forget which OS I'm using.

    I would rather use XP than Linux, however, if I had my choice on Win 9x/ME/2k, I would have to pick Linux.

    that is why I would pick linux over 9x/ME, and over 2k because it is very user unfriendly.

    I would rather use both, and apparently Win2k is more stable than WinXP Pro, at least that is what MS used to advertise.

    I see the greatest benefit comming out of Linux in the long term because it's a powerful OS that can be understood in more detail. With MS you are limited by the information that they want to give you which is never going to be the whole truth, however this is fine so long as you don't want to learn kernal details and specialize the OS for your specific purposes. Actually you can learn Win2k kernal details, however you just can't change anything.

    Well, since we are on the OS issue, let me say I love your avatar. Used BeOS even since version 2. It was a great operating system. Sad it was bound to failure... had they started it 12 years ago...

    People people

    THe way I see it, and take no offence newbies,
    but Linux outpasses by far any of Windows OSs, and the only difference is that there are more games being developed for Windows, and because MS is a monopoly, a lot of hardware manufacturers give all their support to ms. But the tide is changing, ever since IBM invested 8Million $$ in Linux. After all, Windows can't be hanging around forever....Jeesh
    If you haven't tried it, don't say anything against it....:P

    I have tried it, I have 2 distros, actually. I know hillbillie has, too. Tell me this: What does Linux as an OS bring you that Win2k/XP/NT doesn't? It's a helluvalot more unstable in my opinion, it's slow, does nothging new to me, has inferior products...good God, the list could go on. Of course it has its good points too, but there's no reason to use Linux as your primary desktop OS.

    I would rather use both, and apparently Win2k is more stable than WinXP Pro, at least that is what MS used to advertise.

    Stop bouncing back and forth, jackass.
