If it wasn't for those two small issues i wouldn't go with windows ever. But i am not alone. I know of others that have a dual boot for there work. It sucks really! Why can't a company that sales printers make software for more than windows or mac? I can't understand why there are so many companys that make software for the model railroad companys that will only work in windows. One company makes one for Mac. none make one for Linux. Here is another gripe, With over 90% of all servers out there using Linux for there software, why don't more go away from windows for there servers. Linux server software serves any os. why can't other software do that the same? another thing is anti-virus software. If Linux can get away without needing it why can't windows and mac get away from it. Thats something i will have to check out, I am going to need a anti-virus for windows. Is there any free ones that are any good? Not like i want to be on line with windows much, but i guess i should need something to try and keep them scammers at bay. Gonna have to relearn the windows software again...UGG!!!!!That's why I don't use Linux.
