Much of this post rings true. Personally, I spent a few days
downloading all 5 SuSE 9.1 Pro CDs. It still doesn't support
my sound card (9.0 didn't either) but it's not supposed to.
But if I DO want sound, I'll have to go buy a new sound card,
which kind of defeats the purpose of a free OS. :-(

My friend just the other day complained his Winmodem wasn't
recognized by SuSE. THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED A WINMODEM. And
you can't really blame Dell for selling him that as part of
a package way back in the 90's -- they wanted to sell as
price competitive a system as they could. When I bought a
very similar Dell in 98, I specifically asked for hardware
that was supported by Linux. At the time that meant a CD
drive instead of a DVD, and a US Robotics 56K instead of a
Winmodem. Unfortunately, they blew the sound card. Maybe
it was supported back in 98, but it's not supported now.

Yes, you will have to edit text files. It's really not that
bad, once you find the right file (or files) to edit! Gates
hides information one way, Torvalds hides it another way.
Kind of evens out. Personally, I like the idea of the config
file being accessible before the application is running, as
opposed to Windows where you typically edit options inside
the program.

Windows XP is by far the best MS operating system I've ever
used. Linux is trying to catch up, but it's not easy given
the momentum MS and all the related hardware vendors have.
This is obviously one of the key problems.

Hopefully Linux has gotten to the point where it's actually
putting pressure on MS to improve. The opposite is already
clearly true.

But yet you trimmed the groups because you are afraid that people might
actually agree with him.

Groups put back.

Fool..

are you trying to say windows does not have problems
Ya right to long to list the only way to run windows
in a stable condition is not to install any applications
on it.

I hate to sound dense and everything, but could anyone read all of that? I
mean alot of it was bleating from what I could tell. Alot of what was
listed as disadvantages are some of the reasons I like linux...

For example, the bit about fonts - don't like 'em? feel free to change
'em. You want to be able to program? just use a compiler and feel free to
program (since when did windows offer this sort of flexibility). Want to
change your configuration? just open up a text editor and change to your
hearts content - how much better does it get really?

Sure hardware vendors aren't supporting linux to a large degree as of yet,
but they seem to be coming if slowly.

If anyone was able to read all of that, just how bad did it get??

It's best MS OS I've used as well. It's still a steaming pile of shit
nonetheless. This is the standard MS has set with its lamentable product
line.


Yes, MS and the vendors have great marketing momentum. If you want
technical momentum, however, Linux is way ahead of the competition.

Linux is GPL. One of the key requirements of the GPL is that anyone who
obtains a copy can make copies available in any way they please to anyone
else. Restrictions that SUSE places are warez, not the people who make the
copies available.
