Look. I'm not saying Windows is THAT bad. It just doesn't let me feel comfortable or at home. Yes, i do get a lot of nice Blue screens a day. But that's not my point. I don't type letters in Ms Word. I like to do other stuff besides playing nifty 3d games and modifying the registry. Personnaly i feel more at home in linux. I don't want to upset anyone or anything. Windows is very nice for being so simple and fast.
I mean, after all , i'm a C programmer. :P
<<It's not hard to get Linux working with a nice distro anymore, it's just hard to get it to do anything.>>
i don't think you're right here. i'm running RedHat 7.2 on my only pc at home, and my moron roomate uses it everyday with little or no problems. He's even dabbling with MySQL (once i got the gui running for him). anyway point it that linux installs are easy now days, and linux can do anything a windows system can unless you're into games. windows whoops linux's ass in that respect, but there's more game development everyday. last i heard anyway; it may be dead now...
I still can't grasp why some ppl are still so scared of Open Source. It's not like the penguin's gonna byte or something... All i wanted to say is that there should be a more open communication between programmers.
Red Hat 6.1 took me about 10 minutes to install, and a few more for X. The only problem came when Kudzu couldn't recognize my modem - internal PCI plug and play SM56 Motorola 56 K. No luck on getting that one to work though... :confused:
