Fedora 14 "permissions" - Page 3

post #21 of 26
A. im not paid to give support on these forums

B. these are not main stream linux support forums, rather mostly enthusiast fun linux users around here, but we do give some support

C. you should perhaps read what i said and take it as something other than an insult because some times the truth hurts

D. there are distros such as redhat and SLED that you pay a small fee for that have commercial support from paid technicians if you really want it

E. most of the linux help is quite good UNLESS you say something extremely stupid and insulting towards the OS and show your ignorance while raising a red flag that you are wanting to learn exactly the opposite of what you should be learning for your chosen career interest
Kinda meh now...

You can't get bothered by microsoft zealots. microsoft will always be a half assed rip off of unix. His failure to understand that and learn anything shows through in the anger and frustration in his posts.

If I was not told everyday how great and perfect she is (saviour of the modern world and all that) I would not look so hard for the warts. The same goes with overly agressive fans of Linux, these type simply just push too hard as an example of
perfection in an OS. If you do not want more acceptance (more than the 2 or 3 percent you have now) by the mainstream public, go ahead and make the same mistakes Microsoft did. When you think of it, why is not a free OS slapping Microsoft to the curb and dominating? America just loves anything free, even if it tastes bad.

This link is pretty long but it does spell out real good just where the support given to the person who wants to try Linux at home is turned off by the support,lack of support and duplication of incorrect support. The link is from 2009 as I did not think it was fair to link the reports from earlier days,they were simply too brutal.

If you don't want to work with Linux, nobody is forcing you to...

What we're all trying to explain is this:

Linux permission requests are aimed to be useful to system administrators. Ordinary day to day tasks will never need the use of sudo, and thus will never need to be prompted of a password. If you alter major system settings, like hard drive mountpoints or network settings, you need root access, as these settings belong to the root account. Linux / Unix is a multi-user OS from the ground up.

If you wish to bypass the restrictions placed upon you by your user account, simply run as root. We've told you that, and you keep coming back picking fights about why Linux will never be anything but an oddity [despite being the de-facto standard for web based computing and having a major share of enterprise computing]. If all you want to do is talk about how awesome Windows is, then please, keep using Windows. If you can't be bothered to learn to properly use Linux, you don't need to be using it.

Essentially, what you're arguing is that Linux is flawed because it doesn't conform to how you feel it should. If you're unaware, thats like saying a fork is flawed because you can't eat soup with it.

The more you post, the more I think this is just a flamebait thread.

Dekstop distros don't have support, because it's all user driven. Ask someone how they feel about RHEL support, and I think you'll get a different picture, since they pay for proper support.

We've tried to help. If you don't like the answer, you don't have to take the advice. Stick with windows if you like.
