Want to run linux soooo bad - Page 6

post #51 of 91
Meh, I don't see why people fixate on the big distros, when there are far better ones with a far more user-friendly way of doing things, like Mint or PCLinuxOS. Who needs to dig around man pages for command lines when some distros have a real, working control panel that equals, or betters the windows one?

sorry ill stop laughing at the ignorant troll and shoot him down now

windows... google, look for a program.. find a download link that wont trojan your system... wait for the download from a badly throttled bandwidth of a massive download site... install, put in your UAC password if you need to... wait for the install, click next a bunch... create a shortcut on your desktop... RESTART... wait for it to boot back up, log back in, wait for windows to load everything... and then you can start up the program

linux... depends which route you like cli its nice and easy... sudo apt-get install programname... put your password in... finishes downloading, installing, and you can just type the program name in and your good

or you can open up a gui such as synaptic, type in your search term (which is faster than a google search considering its local), click a check box, click apply, type in password, wait while it does all the work, done, you can start it up

NOTE: this also shoots down several other posts from ignorant windows users...

OH and on the note of drivers... it may have been a big issue in the past, but it really isnt now windows is 10x more a pain in the ass than linux on the driver subject

EDIT: and no, i am not anti windows, i made this post from a winXP install, my laptop runs only win7, and i still use windows daily... but windows elitists need to grow up and stop believing myths about linux

but manpages are...sacred...

manpages aren't really any different than browsing thru a "man-ual" or a help. there be gold in those 'pages! you learn the art of manpages, only then and there will the only limiting factor is how fast you can type

bit of an exaggeration don't you think?

you forgot to mention the hours of fun you can have chasing down "trojan.w32.variant102834355387.wrm" or you very own version of "bubble" pop, as you try to close down all the pop-up browser windows when you get infected it with "showMeALLads"...lets not forget all the third party tools and utilities you have to download to perform backups, defragmentations, photoediting, video viewing, virus scanners, malware scanners, ad blockers...etc...and not all of them are free, you are looking at a great time signing your childrens college tuition away and your soul as you agree to cryptic and vague eula's...

but windows does have one ultimate advantage, lets not bother with trouble shooting, as reinstalling fixes everything, so you can now constantly relive over and over again, every 3 to 4 weeks (if you're really lucky, even sooner) you can get that ultimate bonding experience as you reinstall not only your entire OS, but everything else! who needs friends or family, or even pets, when you have windows OS!

there is so much to windows, i'm not sure i can cover it all... (for those who don't have a sense of humor, please forgive my late night attempt at comical satire )

i thought it was funny

i really think picking sides on linux vs windows is idiotic cause youll never win...

BUT i do think if you are gonna argue for windows, at least make points that dont suck and arent totally backwards lol even people who dont want to pick sides wont have a problem correcting you if you feel like making an idiot of yourself

and also... man pages > windows help files by far!! the only people who knock man pages are people who have either never used them, or are scared of command line

ON TOPIC: mint is a bit easier for newer users than ubuntu although both are quite simple, mint is basically just a more polished version of ubuntu and has a nice little following, i highly suggest checking it out

EDIT: added something that was on topic so i dont feel like a total jerk
Kinda meh now...

isn't it windows help, the one that will ask you 3 or 4 questions, then take you back to the first question/answer as the end result?

i'm actually quite content with the idea that my current rig could probably keep going at least another 10 to 15 years on the latest kernel (more than likely a lighter DE/WM), but it might be pushing it to take it to windows 8...somethings wrong there imho

windows vista/7 have been great, but its been a journey to get there...don't get me wrong, there are days i want to drive my fist into my monitor cause of something annoying me in linux...every OS sucks in its own way, and most will focus only on the bad of linux but praise windows for its good ignoring its short comings, thats why these arguments are endless...but i will offer this one piece of advice, you don't like linux ask for a refund

that statement is false MOST people will praise windows for things it does bad but they dont know any better... hence the great example of "just google a program and install it real quick" lol

usually the people who can actually make intelligent arguments for windows also have decent knowledge of linux to make those arguments and realize the argument is pointless and dont argue

i google all the time for programs, just not in windows but also in ubuntu...but there is a clear difference on how i will go about installing them...i have to pretty "desperate" tho, to install a package that came from the wild without checking out in a chroot first , most, if not all, of my programs come from the repo's, one or two official backport ppa's, or its coming from a highly trusted source site (typically a well known program.), i would say a good 95% of my system comes straight out of the repo's, there is something comforting about that, knowing that 95% of my programs are being watched out for and updated right along with the rest of my OS

Oh God, what a terrible thread.

The OP could have learned drastically more if he had spent his time doing a quick Google or Wikipedia search on the subject. Instead, he created a thread that got instantly filled with trolls and no real discussion or even much insight for the OP. Sorry to break it to you OP, but it's nice that you're interested in the matter, but you lack the initiative to search and find information, which is a necessity to those looking for any type of technical support for free software. You could always try to prove me wrong though, and give it an install

What is Linux?
What is Ubuntu?
You should also check out some of the stickies and FAQs in the subforum.

I think the OP ran away screaming a long time ago. It's unfortunate that we have so many Windows trolls around here.

Anyone who's used the App Store on their iPhone, or the Android Market, should appreciate the fact that (desktop) Linux also has such a thing and Windows probably never will.

a truly valid assesment of this thread. However, a little use has come of it as I am responding to you right now from mint running on a virtual machine.

thanks for the stickies
