    You say that I'm brainwashed for using open source software, but you are the one who is paying the big bucks to support corporations who seek to be monopolies. I wonder who is really brainwashed.

    Next time you feel like spamming me than leave your name, number, and address. I'll pay you a visit in person and well have a talk about it. We'll see who is unqualified.

    I have zero tolerance for *nix people. I won't put up with anything. What comparisons are you refering to? It's not difficult to study cases where comparisons between operating systems are made. I have been doing this in an attempt to study the differences. Base your accusations on reality. As far as I'm concerned your comments have no substance.

    I see... And you're not a Microsoft loser... So what do you use, Dean? OS X?

    Outside of personal attacks I'm not sure what this guys claim is. Is he saying that software for XWindows is multiplatform? Okay, sure that's true, obviously Linux and Unix are related through XWindows. Maybe I insulted Unix. Oh well.

    ... and you rarely use the <edit post> button.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Yeah, I should edit the part where I called them cry babies. Na.


    As I understand it, Gnome was developed out of The GIMP program. I guess that the libraries used in creating 'GIMP' are the basis of the Gnome desktop...my favorite desktop!

    Personally, i think that a fresh install of any linux based operating system is tacky(the GUI), to get a nice GUI you have to mess about with things a little, window managers etc, change what you want to get everything the way you like it.Everyone has got their own tastes. i'm no linux guru so i won't protend i am, but for the user interface, windows is by far the better out the Linux vs Windows desktop battle from a standard install, though linux was not designed to be user friendly, all pretty colours, & a point and click OS but they are working towards being more user friendly...

    Back onto topic,

    I think it is important to know the bare basics of linux/unix - system directory structure/header files as they may vary (no expert), as sometime in your programming career you will come accross it, i'm no advanced user, but from what i can tell, programs written in windows can be ported to linux with little or no change at all, some commands vary etc. IMO, Another reason for the learning the basics of linux is because as you said yourself, many companies use it, the linux users are growing every day, companies are switching to linux because it's free, no licsencing fee's etc. Linux companies are looking for new recruits to help improve linux, to make it better than it is, more user friendly etc.

    I don't think they are working toward total nobrainer desktops. If they did that then they would be thowing security out the window. What they are working toward is a style guide so that if you know one app implemented with gtk+ than you will see a consistant style in other apps across the desktop.


    I just downloaded and installed the brand new Mandrake 9.0. This is the sleekest and best OS and desktop(s) that I have ever seen. I can not make this any clearer. I am warning you all. You have no idea what you are missing. You have no idea! I can not understand how this is free. This is completely scandalous.


    I told you. I warned you. Don't forget who warned you.
