You were saying? lol

I am well aware of the -y flag, but I nor do I know anyone that ever uses that out side of in automated scripts.
Sure, I know someone people might use it but still, it's a valid point. I do the whole next next next thing in windows.
Linux? I take the time to read everything. I couldn't tell you why; I've only every killed my linux system once, compared to windows which I find myself reinstalling every 3 months or so.

Eh...I give Windows a year if I'm not lazy. You don't really need to reinstall it...but it ends up being like Slackware in which if you don't keep track of were things were installed and what they did then it falls apart pretty fast. Loved the ObscureOS link. I know Shrak and others on here don't believe it but they are the minority of Archers in that they're generally pretty friendly. I mean something as simple as going "if I don't have an .asoundrc file where should I make it" either gets you massive flame or simply ignored.

That's just because of the forums rules ( at least for simple things like that tongue.gif ). The Arch forum rules ask that you visit the wiki before making a new thread, in which case answers the majority of those stupidly generic questions. But even I don't act like your example ( unless I'm either drunk or haven't had my morning coffee, smile.gif )

But once you get to know everyone in the Arch community they're pretty nice and fun to hang around in the IRC channels.

To be fair, the Debian forums are also a bit notorious for immediately dismissing peoples questions. The last 2 years or so they have gotten a bit better though. Debian doesn't have anywhere near the wiki that arch does, so instead of expecting people to go read the wiki, you're just supposed to know. tongue.gif

The debian forums are also much smaller, and in debian it is easyer to 'just know' see what you mean though, just mention ubuntu and we atteck in hordes smile.gif the arch wiki is the gem of the distro imo, i use it all the time as it generaly works in most distros as well. Debians is ok, but nothing like archs

I'm definitely a windows fan boi and feel that i am familiar with the system. I hate windows 8 at least as far as desktops go. I love Windows 7 I can setup how ever I like and if there is anything i can lack it doesn't take much googling to figure it out. However I like to play with Linux and Mac OSX X86 just because I like a little flavor a every now and then for lack of better words. I think your typical linux uers is going to be an advanced user, not to say there aren't average Joes who use it for internet.
