Well, LK forced me into this one.. shouldn't have made fun of tux!!
Rofl. Rofl. Rofl. Those distros are like.. idiot-proof GUI's, not Linux. All three of those are directed towards computer-illiterate people, and you are not one of them. You cannot judge linux from those crappy distros. Now, I admit, I liked Fedora's install, but still, I'm not going to let you call linux bad just because of those distros. Because I would call linux bad too if I only used those.I've used Suse and Red Hat and Fedora Some people would say any of those are the best.
Which is why I love linux. We don't have a bunch of idiots swarming around it, for whom Microsoft has to make idiot-proof features to keep them from destroying the computer. Linux, because it's much more flexible, is not designed for newbies (unless you're referring to Red Hat, and the distros above). But the payoff of this flexibility, is being able to install X-Chat (An IRC Client), by just typing in "emerge x-chat" in a terminal, and Gentoo's portage system will download, unzip, and install all the files. Then if you don't like something, you can always edit the .conf file.If Windows did that; people would be all over it for which programs it packages in the system, or has names for in the system. It just wouldn't work for the masses of Closed Source Programs as it does for Linux with the tiny amount of major Open-Source Programs.
Yeah, I was wondering that too. Why BUY linux? Hahahah. Linux is Free. The best distros can be downloaded from the web. Windows is the one you need to buy.Why buy Linux
That would be true, except, it doesn't look like Windows. Not at all. Google for KDE, or Fluxbox, or Blackbox, or Gnome Screenshots (all of those are GUI's.) They don't look like windows.for the style and then sit down and spend two days making it look like Windows
Then why do you downgrade Linux? You just admitted that you don't really know how the Linux system works. So why keep dragging it down? Some newbie who is browsing the site might get discouraged from using a great OS. You're supposed to set an example, not spread opinions based on false facts LK, esspecialy because so many people look up to you.If I were doing an essay on why Open-Source is useless I would of course need to spend time on the systems. I'm not.
