Only thing they will tell you is to erase windows ad install Linucks.

What? You were expecting them to troubleshoot your Windows problems on a anti-MS forum?

There you will be called an a.s.s as long as you don't instal Linux. Don't go there if you are on M$ Windows or don't say you are.

I hate Microsoft purely because I don't think its healthy for the computer industry to have one company dominating it, but I also dislike Linux zealots who try to enforce a revolution on everyone.

I don't see why people always think pro-Windows = anti-Linux and pro-Windows = anti-Linux.

I'm pro-Linux, pro-Mac and pro-BSD.

I don't have a problem with Windows itself, it runs quite well if you can tame it right (NT is quite a technically advanced OS) I suppose I do hate the Win 9x series though.

Anyway I hope I'm not trolling, I just found this forum from Google, and didn't know if I'd be welcome due to my dislike of Microsoft, so ban me if you wish.

You just repeated yourself there :lol: :lol:

But yeah... If people want to use Windows, let them use windows... If people want to use Linux, let them use linux... same goes for mac/bsd/os2 (god forbid os2 :lol: )

Own opinions should be kept to theirselves so to speak :realmad:

Certifications have nothing to do with liking Microsoft or not. I know a guy that is the most FANBOY in the world for NetBSD, FreeBSD and some Linux Distros, tottaly hates Microsoft and Windows, and has the most complete curriculum of Microsoft. MCSA, +M and +S; MCSE, +M and +S.

Why?

Because if he only had LPI (Linux Professional Institue) and Linux + from CompTIA he would not have a job.

About Windows being compatible with everything, well ... I think its the other way around. (Things are made thinking of Windows)

PC parts, for example, have they drivers done for Windows. Most of PC parts manufacters dont make Linux Drivers. Linux could be as compatible as Windows if the big guys made drivers (drivers is just an example) for it.

Bubye.

P.S: I am not defending Linux. I am tottaly a Windows Fanboy. But Im not blind, as most of Linux Fanboys.

I love Windows and everything Microsoft. Those guys on that forum are a little over the top, that forum is a lot of fun with all the lies they say about Microsoft and their software.

All companies want you to buy their products and wants everybody using them. Microsoft is not the only one or even the first one.

I have a real love-hate relationship with MS. As an MSFT stock holder, their stock has been stagnant for the last ~5 years, which means I'm not making money off them (of course, I made a boatload off them in the mid to late 90s, but that's beside the point :P), which of course annoys me. As a user of their products, their software can be a royal pain in the arse some times. But at the same time, I have no desire to find many replacements for their software because what they make for the most part "just works".

Own opinions should be kept to theirselves so to speak :realmad:

Actually I dissagree, I think it's fair enough voicing an opinion and providing a reason behind it but it's another thing not respecting other people's opinions and forcing your idea on everyone. I hate Microsoft, I hate oil companies, I hate supermarkets, I hate it that we don't have a choice but to use Windows (if we want all our hardware to work properly). I don't have a problem with people liking Windows, I just wish the averge Joe knew about operating systems and realised that they might prefer using an alternative to Windows without having the issue of hardware support to cloud their judgement.

Like Windows, but I hate Microsoft. Their policies are crap and I think they are overdoing it these days. For example, this WGA crap they are implementing. Stupid.

Anyway, aren't we all forgetting something? ... Mac OS X?

I don't think so... I cannot install MAC OS X directly on my PC since it require special hardware. I know it can be done under simulation but you still need a Windows or Linux system underneath... And the whole debate stays, yes Photoshop will work but not my games and GigaStudio.


mac os x doesn't require any special hardware at all. as far as i know it does require a SSE2 cpu, but if your computer has been manufactured in the past few years you likely fall into that category.

i have out of the box support in osx for SATA, ethernet, sound & video on my intel box. i didn't buy anything special to be compatible with it, and more drivers are emerging every day.

the only thing required 'underneath' is a mac formatted partition as the first partition on your drive. and of course you don't need an existing operating system to create that partition, a bootdisk will suffice. i even run linux + xp alongside my mac osx 10.4.3

mac ran on intel -long- before windows ran on mac

now to answer the question posed by our thread starter:

yes i dig microsoft (a f***ing grave!)

I for one support both MS products and open sorce things such as Linux. I run both and use many applications on sorceforge...


I do agree with the above poster, and it would be nice if microsoft would support the "open document" standard, I do not want to tell microsoft that they should, by the same tocan I do not exepect any objections from microsoft (or any other vendor) to government's requiring adherance to this or any royalty free standard. I imagine it should be relatively easy for MS to write a plugin for this format as it has done for many other document formats, if they want to keep the business.

btw, I use primarily linux, I do use windows for playing my old games from time to time and I have turned of the network in windows so I do not have any problems with updates and the inevitable reboot or mallware that might come from the internet. So it could be that I am biased.....

Anyway that was my $0,02
