Linux: Me and the lack of interest.

Posted 11-16-2009 at 08:22 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I wouldn't say I have gotten bored of Linux, but I haven't had interest in using it for the past few months.

Either due to the fact that I am too lazy to find a Linux disc to reinstall GRUB to the MBR, or the fact that my games are keeping me tied to Windows.

Maybe I need a PC to exclusively use for Linux? I got an old PC that I use for a file server whenever I decide to turn it on. Maybe I should just backup the files on that machine on to an external hard drive, and...

Check name resolution and firewalls.

I tried giving 192.168.1.144 as an IP telnet address but still client is not getting connected. Do u want me to give cllient server code...

Linux is a lost cause!

Posted 11-14-2009 at 07:40 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

This is the quote I was told earlier this week by a colleague. "Linux is a lost cause."

HAS LINUX LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE?

I don't for a second agree that Linux is truly lost but I do certainly agree with my friend and colleague that the promise Linux fortune tellers made has not come to pass.

So when should one upgrade?

Posted 11-12-2009 at 07:54 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

Everything else involves actually using the software....
