Yeah I use Ubuntu also.

I just had a help desk call from one of my store managers. He couldn't figure out why a .dotx is different from a .docx and you want me to move him to Ubuntu?
I don't get how you all can be pointyheads with the computers and cavemen with a woodstove It's kinda funny readying cause you all are making jokes (least I think?) that 99% of us are thinking, WTF are these guys talking about?!
When I get on the computer I check email or a few website and that's about it. Everyone knows Al Gore invented the internet so he could look at free porn
If ya do it 9-10 hours a day, you look for something else to do on your off time. I do very little with puters in the evening. I don't even like to look at the TV at night. Worked on my still last night. (for making ethanol)
About 3,700 times at least.
Makes sense, same way a mechanics truck is usually the one that's falling apart, barely running.
Yeah - I have been doing this as a job for 24 years (counting military) and started messing with puters in about 1979. I dream in ones and zeros. Have been at my current post (computer dude extraordinaire) for 18 years and unless something unforeseen happens, I will retire from here.
hahahaha. maybe not for the average user yet. LOL. Its a great OS and it moves really fast on legacy hardware.
Oh - I am familiar with Ubuntu. I am also and IBMer. I run a mini-main for my operational software (sales order, purchase orders, inventory, payables, receivables, etc). You want to see something that can perform??? My IBM box is smokin' hot.
I know, I know...this is a fox link, but it is not politcal. Looks like the next version of Windowz (currently called windows blue, but will probably be renamed to win8.1) will have a direct to desktop option.
Isn't the the tribe where Obama was born?
I'm right there with Jags. After a full day dealing with this stuff (mostly telephone systems, virtually all of which have Linux or Windows servers that run right along side them), by the time I get home I want as little to do with technology as possible. The latest non technological activity at night is home brewing. Haven't done that in a while.
Nah. I think Ubuntu is the national religion of Kenya.
you know, OSX is linux based..and with the current flavor, Mountain Lion you get that whole toughness thing goin....grrrrawwwwrrrr.
Still hoping I live to use one of my favorite lines from a movie...Star Trek ?? (the one with the whales, the voyage home maybe?)
Scotty:"oh, a keyboard, how quaint".
I fully agree! I remember the 3 finger salute all too well lol.. Win 7 is excellent in my opinion for reasons you outlined and many other reasons... Love the search feature!
Like I said earlier, MS seems to get about every other one right. Sure I crashed a lot in Win 95, a whole lot. Win 98 SE was not perfect, but a lot better. Win ME was awful. 2000 and XP were better and easier to use, but Win7 is so far my fave. I see in Win 8.1 (Blue) they are going to return the Start button and boot straight to the desktop. That's a start.
My favorite OS on the desktop was OS/2. One of my desktop troops was in my office one day and looked at my monitor. In the bottom corner it showed that it had been up for 64 days. He said he was going back to take Windows off of his machine and put up OS/2.
I tried to give OS/2 a chance, I really did. But is was very unstable when I used it and most of the graphic apps I was trying to use in it were too dysfunctional. I decided I didn't want to be a beta tester for IBM.
for DOS there is always iDOS for the iPhone:
Yeah - OS/2 was pretty notorious for driver issues, but once you had a machine up and running (cleanly) - the sucker would just run.
Big Blue wouldn't be part of it. It is only for the X86 line of low end servers. I'm gonna be rock'in the POWER7+. The thing is a brute.
