    Hi All

    I was wondering if anyone has anything positive to say about this OS?
    There's a document on kazaa that it takes 4 min to load and system commands are slow.
    Is it like Win Linux?
    Is it faster than Win Linux?

    I'll tell you why.
    Windows seems to be in 90+% of the comps in existance!
    THATS RIDICULOUS!!
    And we pay the price.
    They take forever to come out with thier products.
    lots of them suck.
    And many times they don't want to give you any tech help(unless your willing to pay for it) even when you dl products on their site.
    If they had any competition we would be running better,cheaper and faster operating systems.
    But you knew that.
    Everyone Does.

    Lindows have fame to be a OS with no stabilitie at all.
    Maybe for an enterprise that wont like to pay alot of licences ,
    and or not.................. Dont know this rare things that I wont tuch
    Linux have stabilities and windows a bunch of software.
    Lindows sounds nice but if you google about lindows you get
    some information that makes it an alfa, or beta and needs
    longer time to be stablil

    Because the majority of people that have a PC will probably not even know about Linux. And, theres one basic fact about Windows, it is the easiest OS to use, far easier than Linux, which appeals to many people.


    They take forever to come out with thier products.

    Can you do better? Software developing is all about trial & error, and seen as MS are the largest OS developer, they're are bound to be a few cock ups along the way.


    And many times they don't want to give you any tech help(unless your willing to pay for it) even when you dl products on their site.
    I'm sure you'll be astonished to hear, all Linux distros will want payment for technical support.

    Linux is for advanced users to play with and windows is for your average computer user.
    unless you have hours to spend learning to use linux it is not worth a look.

    windows xp is a fantastic os, They manage to fit it onto one disc unlike most modern linux distros.
    This means windows is probably very well coded.

    Any os that is used on 90% of the worlds computers is gonna have a few flaws and somewhere in that 90% people are gonna notice it. that is why people piss on windows.

    I have never had linux crash on me but i have KDE and Gnome do it too many times to count. windows is only a nice gui that sits on top of dos just like these do on the linux kernel.

    What linux became very popular for is its versatility. since you can strip it down to a bare bones os it can be used from everything from mobile phones to supercomputers.

    Linux has a long way to go to even compete with windows in the homemarket but It will trounce windows and unix for that matter in the server and supercomputer market.
