    Hehehe! You really do hate Windows. It's ok I understand how you feel -- Windows crash too much.

    Here in my country, most (almost all) people thinks that Windows is the only operating system in the world. Last week I was bringing around my UNIX book and my classmates even mistook it for a new programming language (LOL) hahaha!

    Ever since birth I was influenced largely by the MIcrosoft world... until last month that is I was able to install a small version of Linux and I'm going full blast to make good use of it. One thing I can say: DOS is really much more user friendly, Linux is kind of cryptic. (But I think that's the beauty of it, right?)

    howdy,
    Linux LOOKS to me like an OS written by people that thinks like programmers instead of people serviceing an uneducated (at least as far as programming goes) general public.
    just think back to the DOS days where we used commands like cd\, delete, copy..... from the command line, or am i dating myself?

    Yah after all those years, I still have a fondness for the DOS command line hehehe I have to admit, it really awed me the first time I used it (That was the first time I've ever used a computer)

    You know, that command line practice in DOS has helped me in transitioning into Linux smoothly. They're pretty much the same, except that Linux provides more tools and versatility.

    So why should we hate DOS when in fact it somehow had a healthy effect once in our life?

    Try mounting with the "noatime" option. Even though you aren't writing anything to the disk, the system may be writing the access times for any files you use.
    I doubt, therefore I might not be

    Hahaha! Since he thinks this post is pointless, he must be some kind of weird nerd. Nerds always voice out their opinion behind the veil of secrecy.

    You mean to say you actually hate the things that make the PC a more convenient environment? You shouldn't... Linux has that GUI system too

    NO NO NO i meant back in the old days when my ego said "I don't need that school kid stuff to command my 8088. Damn it anyone that uses one of these should know debug. Hell i can do anything i want with a simple entry in my autoexec.bat or config.sys. That windows stuff is for children that just dont understand"
    NOW i really apreciate GUI infact i have just recently fallen in love with KDE.

    Oh I thought you hate GUI hehehe. The only thing I hate with the MS-Windows GUI is that it sometimes is so goddam slow. My PC is an IBM-clone Pentium I 100MHz with Windows 95 as primary platform. Windows eats up the memory and prone to crashes when I go into heavy C pointer programming. Other than that, I love the Windows GUI Makes me productive in my other tasks.

    I'd love to install a window system in my Linux but it's kinda complicated. What's the best Linux GUI system?

    OOOHH MAN you shouldn't ought to gone an asked that. thats like asking whats better blonde or red head.

    for me i have spent one year infront of gnome on mandrake and about 6 months infront of KDE on RH, my vote goes to KDE.
    the main reason is Stability Gnome was constantly eating it where KDE only occasionaly burps.
    IMHO

    I like brunettes myself. The best GUI is, by far, fvwm.

    So what does this have to do with destroyed DOS disks again?

    My DosLinux has no GUI system hehehe... how bout X-Windows?

    >>So what does this have to do with destroyed DOS disks again?<<

    The GUI system will influence the way you access your disks so that it will not be destroyed by the time you reboot to Windows. (I just made this up hehehe...)
