M$ attack on Common Sense

Post by Alan Conno » Wed, 10 Sep 2003 01:34:07



My final word on the subject:


Windows is a crummy operating system.


And we see here just WHY it is:

Because most of its users are utterly incapable of exercising basic
common sense.


Here's your clue, Windoze Weenies -- > 2 + 2 = 4


Whether you *like* it or not.....

If only it were... What a *** ing bozo!


You know, I freely admit to my UNIX bigotry and I'll slam Microshaft
every chance I get, but that doesn't mean I'm going to go after the
people that use it...

Time for your meds, pinhead!

I know most doctors around here use windows because they cannot work out
unix. Next time you have a heart attack try fixing it yourself instead of
going to one of these people who "utterly incapable of exercising basic
common sense". Moron. Blamining users just because they haven't done a
computer science degree or spent 30 hours a week hacking unix is arrogant
and elitist. Other people have a real life you know.

Security is not about having to spend all your life learning unix. Its a
trade off between risk and resourses. That is the case no matter what
operating system you have. Ever wonder why most users go for microsoft
instead if (say) linux even though linux is "free". Maybe its because you
can get microsoft stuff to do what its supposed to easily. Users want to
_use_ the computer - they do not want to be _system administrators_ .
Berating people because they have a life outside the machine only shows off
your own character.

The only medical practice I know around here that uses unix (SCO Unix) the
unix box always has problems and has been of the air for several days last
week. The windows machines have all worked fine!!

The company that owns the contract to maintain the SCO box can't seem to get
it to handle more than 14 users, have difficulty setting up VPNs on it and
all the other good stuff that appear to be just plug and play with
microsoft.

Large organizations like hospitals and uni's are able to support unix more
than small businesses because they use taxpayer money to give the machine a
pat everytime it needs attention and the IT staff are able to dictate to the
staff/students what to use.

Right. A person that has the ability to become an M.D. can't do what the
13 year old kid down my block learned to do in two weeks.

I am beginning to think that you are actually an idiot.

Other people have "brains" you know.


But then, not having one, you might not realize they exist.




Unethical and criminal business practices account for much of M$'s success,
NOT a superior operating system.

I wouldn't let a doctor near me that used M$ products for anything critical.


Gods! I wonder how many people have died or been crippled by such foolishness.


It never occured to me that there is also a Red Screen of Death.




Can't say I am surprised to find an idiot defending M$.


There's something poetic about that, don't you think?


Oops! I forgot that you don't do that.

No, it is primarily because dealers install Win, and rarely Linux.

Except of course when they went down with the blaster worm and the Sobig
virus? Certainly very very many Windows users machines did.

Sounds like a) you have an incompetent maintainer, or b) a useless
version of Unix (I would suspect both.)

No. To maintain a Windows box and a Linux box probably takes just as
much work. Small businesses tend to ignore support, until they get
bitten by the latest bug or whatever.

Using this un-educated youth to get back at me for daring to disagree
with you on the Usenet...


Is REALLY low.


I hope you can spell "cowardly-backstabbing-punk".


Because that is what you are.

I think you are lying.


Let's see some evidence, please.





By-the-way, calling someone who disagrees with you a "troll" is lame
indeed.


Lying and name-calling do nothing for your cause.

But then, what other recourse do you have?

Easier than presenting facts and data and responding to those awkward
questions, isn't it?

Run and hide

(and good riddance)


The M$ world is filled to the brim with dishonest and uneducated people
like you.

Gullible consumers of the sort that actually believe that "Things Go Better
With Coke."


For every business you can find that tried linux and gave up, I can find
10 who can't believe that their system works all the time, is immune to
viruses, and they don't have to spend half their lives on the telephone
waiting for a technical support person to get around to them.


You think linux is complicated?

Windoze is so complex that people don't even BOTHER trying to learn how
it works.

They take one look at the MS Knowledge Base and fork out another 100 bucks
for technical support.

Why are you judging ME for what OTHERS can and cannot do?

Are you too stupid to tell the difference?

Citation, please? I'm curious whether they put more than a token effort
into it; a national chain *should* be able to do more than a mom-and-pop
in this regard.

Here's a company that went in the opposite direction:

Well, SCO is a whole other can of worms, seeing as the new owners are
waving around lots of lawsuits / threats-of-lawsuits, claiming ownership
of millions of lines of Linux source code, and otherwise (in the words of
no less an authority than Linus Torvalds himself) "smoking crack". :)

Such an obvious lie.

More childish insults.



linux is more stable and more efficient and more secure than Windoze.

This could be proven in a court of law.


You wouldn't even be able to FIND a lawyer that would take your side of the
case on a contingency fee.

It is also far less complex. So much so that Windoze users in general don't
even bother TRYING to learn anything but point-and-click and how to call
technical support.


Windoze is a bad hack on DOS and with that registry, you went right over
the edge.

What, praytell IS "a useless version of Unix". As all are clones of one
another how is anyone owning a business to choose due to all the use-less
and use-full versions out there. In this case they need to hire maintainers
AKA consultants. So based on these consultant's opinions it's really up to
them what use-full or use-less version to install. It's not UNIX' fault.
It's fragmentation and confusion and giving up your choice to someone else.
Just like most folks do with Windows and Gates.
