I can write off the lack of understanding them to your heavy linux use, as Dell and HP never really supported Linux much at all and thus you never had to communicate with them (as a theory), but if you are honestly ignorant enough to think installing a program will make Dell or HP support not talk to you, then you don't even belong on OCN. This is basic level knowledge that should come long before building your own PC, as you should know what you will loose in the trade off.
For someone who claims
to be in the field, you really just don't have the underlying information to be useful at all in this discussion, and are just trying to "save" the guy from everyone else in the thread. The problem is he doesn't need saving, he needs correcting. That very misinformation he holds about what Dell or HP will or will not care about could have been the difference between $1500 and $5.
But of course, you are correct. We should not tell him things like that. We should also let him buy a 7970 Ghz over a normal 7970 despite it being the same exact silicon. Or let him OC on a board without VRM cooling.
Fighting for a cause is good. But don't let it be such an incredibly stupid one that every single person in the thread already said you're wrong before you even posted.
When at anytime did I say anything of what You are talking about? here is what I have said:
"Why does it matter what OS he and his wife decide to use? Are You paying for it? Are You their support?
"Then Provide PROOF of what You say contact Dell and HP and provide the documents showing that what you say is true and what he says is wrong... prove it and move on. Either way it doesn't matter as they have chosen the Mac/Apple route. In the amount of time you have been riding him it could have already been done and over."
"Yeah... professionalism at it's finest
Sorry... Eat the apple? Uh No thanks. Why in the hell would I want to join the rest of You?
Now run along and go change your pampers like a big boy all that finger flexing over your posts surely has pumped your feathers and stroked your ego
Your just a keyboard Punk.. Nothing more nothing less. Talk down to me and You get it in return."
"I get that... hence the word "they". Because either way You and your wife decided together. Doesn't matter if it's hers or not."
"Yeah so is duct tape
Now explain to me Where anything You are going on about has anything to do with what I have Posted? Everything I have writen besides on this page is in this post.
I think Your Highly delusional...
