    Low end PCs run much better with Linux, but of course not
    in windope la-la land where they fake it and choose the
    heavyweight distros on lightweight machines!!! Doh!!!

    Why do these micoshaft dum dums keep doing this?

    Hundreds of livecds here to choose from
    http://www.livecdlist.com
    And many of these are a lot more advanced
    technology for booting up difficult and/or impossible
    to boot windope PCs
    and they are free with source code for everyone
    to try out personally!
    Something micoshaft can't seem to produce this
    thing called open source and GPL'd code.

    They tested 8 different versions of Linux and that still wasn't
    enough? How many different breeds and species of this O/S are there?

    Just click on the "get the facts" sidebars that MS is pasting all over
    every web site they can get to and follow them. You really have to wade
    through lots of verbage but you will almost always find that the facts
    in the study support the pro-MS headline about as well as a supermarket
    newspaper headline of "Alito known to have dated two-headed Elvis clone!"
    supports the "story on page 2."

    You're approaching clucking *Hen* syndrome here. You need to take a bottle
    of asprin and feather down -- feather down.

  5. About 350+ different versions and climbing.

    Linux has to be the most fragmented piece of software in history.

    It seems that every reject weekend warrior geek *programmer* gets his
    jollies seeing his name in lights after packaging up yet another Linux
    distribution.

    My question is, why so many?

    yeah, the 8 hardest and heaviest distributions on machines that can barely
    handle windows?

    just so you know, I used to use windows, until in became impractical for me
    to do so (accessibility issues with my being blind and the cost of
    "software" to make windows work for me). I use linux. I have used mandrake,
    redhat, fedora (new redhat), suse, slackware and some others.

    I currently run suse on this machine, and plan9 on my laptop machine (A
    little 350 Mhz AMD with 256 megs of ram).. I tried windows on that. it
    wouldn't even run. plan 9 works, works reliably and doesn't argue with me
    over what I can, or cannot do with my own machine (can we say DRM?).

    I hate to say this, but microsoft is a failing business model. they are too
    large and cannot innovate fast enough to keep up with increasingly powerful
    machines. Sure, linux is not even close to maturity, but its getting there
    a lot faster (and making new technology along the way) and it can run on
    way more machines and systems than windows could ever hope to be on (mac,
    ppc, dec alpha, sparc, crey, vax, vms, etc......). face it. Microsoft is
    doomed. they were doomed when they tried to take on netscape. they should
    have stayed in the OS market, not tried to take over the world.

    one last point: I am a tech support specialist with 30 years of solid, in
    the field, experience under my belt. The most work I have ever seen has
    been with Microsoft based systems and applications. they are always buggy,
    poorly written and prone to infection and intrusion. so thank you microsoft
    for allowing me to make as much money as I have from your mistakes.

    Always amuses me to see a windows user talking about another OS that he
    hasn't a clue about. But there again you're just a crossposting troll,
    adding alt.os.windows-xp to the newsgroups. Didn't work.
    Because you can build a distro to do anything /you/ want, any /size/ you
    want, focus on any particular aspect of computing that /you/ want. Unlike
    windows, it gives you a choice of what /you/ want the OS to do, & not what
    some faceless company board /thinks/ you should have.
    Ballmer declared linux as The Number One Threat, not long ago.

    Interesting to read how windows people attack Linux. also interesting
    to read how the Linux "Purists" attack Linspire, because it is too like
    windows. Linspire works..

    Yep, I have a friend who uses Linspire and likes it a lot. He has
    good things to say about the support, too. On the occasion a software
    install (using Linspire's "click and run warehouse") does not work,
    they (appearently) are automatically notified of the problem, because
    he'll get an email a couple days later asking him to try again, and
    then it works!

    Threat to do what? The average Joe Blow user with a computer doesn't care
    about this. The average company that use computers for business doesn't care
    about this either.

    This is another much to do about nothing chicken shit post and again this
    whole thread is chicken shit and about nothing with chicken shit Microsoft
    and Linux users with the same old song and dance routines.

    Who cares?
    Who cares?
    I got Suse too big deal.
    Yeah, just like IBM is a failing business model and you must be crazy to
    think the MS is going to fail as a business and you got your finger on the
    pulse of Information Technology around the world. And on top of that, it's
    not going to happen in your lifetime or any time soon there after that MS is
    going to fail as a business.
    So what, I have been in the field a solid 30 years or more too and need to
    make money anyway I can make it. I have been using IBM, RCA, Honeywell, MS
    and Apple and anyway I can to make that $$$$. I have not made a dime off of
    Linux as of yet.

    This post is chicken shit and much to do about nothing.

    Microsoft, idiot. What do you think (and I use the term loosely in your
    case), cheese making?
    Really, are you sure? You're just full of it, as usual. I see you got
    bashed in other groups, where no one takes notice of you now. I shall
    follow suit.

    I doubt that you're even in the IT field and if you are than you're no more
    than HelpDesk or Tech Support if you're that.
    Yeah, I am sure. Clowns like you don't make the calls as to what is
    happening in the Information Technolgy field that I doubt that you're even a
    part of it. You don't know a thing as to what's happeing and of course I am
    going to be bashed in other NG(s) that I don't give a damn about in the
    first place or travel in as it's just on a cross post some other *clown*
    like you that nitiated the cross post.

    You're a *clown*.

    Duane Arnold scribbled this:
    And what has THAT got to do with this thread? So what if he isn't in the IT
    industry? the comment still stands as perfectly valid.
