Whoever it is, this is clearly a troll post/thread.

Slackware is dreadful to me.
I will never choose it.

Windows has very attractive design.

I need to run Autocad,
do you run it in VMware in linux?

People who need to run expensive software like Autocad, don't tend to waste time trolling GNU/Linux forums.

If you like windows, use it.

An interesting question. future_computer seems to have started posting about a month after TigerLinux stopped (or paused), so it could be.

I was never really convinced that TigerLinux was a traditional troll, just a person with a very odd style of provoking in order to get a response (that they were, in some way interested in, rather than just enjoying the chaos that was caused when non-mainstream positions were taken) and little concern about potentially seeming dumb in order to get there. I did think there was some sign of learning, albeit rather slow and very little sign of doing the obvious prep before posting something, which seemed odd, certainly.

The overall style is very similar (the making of odd assertions, which may or may not be actually what the OP believes or just an attempt to provoke interesting discussion, followed by dramatic changes of position). Sentence structure and grammar errors seem to have changed a little, though. Maybe that's just a bit more experience, I don't know.

Shall we conduct a "handtyping" analysis on the sample posts? LOL

Not the OP anymore now the thread has been merged into the Because Shiny Things Are Fun - The New New Windows v Linux Thread'.

But yeah, IMO its TigerLinux. IIRC when future_computer 1st appeared here one of the contact info links (in member profile) was the same for TigerLinux and future_computer.

I've only just noticed Lim Ping Yio returned because the thread he previously posted in weren't threads I was interested in. Now I have come across him twice in a few days and yes it is him.

It is written long ago that "A lazy man will never go out to work in the field because..." he says "there is a lion on the road".


Quote:

Utter falsehood.
Windows has very poor design both in its software architecture and desktop candies. You can only say "very attractive" not because it presents real beauty but because of its "complete driver support" from graphic card manufacturers who meanwhile stupidly resist opening up drivers to FOSS community --here, from this dimension, comparison between M$windows vs. GNU/Linux is unfair, because not all things stand on equal grounds.

"Attractive design" ? It depends. Beauty is in the eyes of the "attracted" beholder.


Quote:

Tell John Walker (Autodesk.Inc) to implement their software under GNU/Linux. Currently they design them only for M$window, OS X and Android. You don't dream to run horse carriage on railways. Right? Get the right Nut for your Bolt to make them useful.


Quote:

VM is for the weak and lazy.
Run it vanilla, or none.
Be honest to yourself. If you want a CAD-like in Gnu/Linux see them here.

Hope that helps.

^ i agree linux sux because it cant run some random software that is specifically designed for windows.

the same way that ms-windows sux because it can't natively run gcc.

(or that car company x sux because it doesnt have component a designed to work for car brand y)

What do you mean "Where are the windows?"?

I am using W8, but most of the time I still go back to desktop.
Seldom use the metro.

What I've seen until now in those previews is this metro-or-wahtever-is-called thingy which shows a bunch of square thumbnails? icons? a mix of both? something else? I don't know. I haven't seen a single maximized window. And I would really like a video demonstrating 3-4 open maximized windows and the ways of switching between them, without going back to that metro-or-wahtever-is-called thingy.

The very few times I work on Windows, I use maximized only windows, and switch between them, so I want to know if version 8 provides that kind of functionality with some sort of taskbar or alt-tab list or...

I want to know if they have put a good version of bash into this one.

It sure is weird that, for the first (and hopefully last?) time ever, a PC user interface seems to have taken the approach of, "Let's make this thing more like it's some poo phone or tablet rather than a real general-purpose computer."

Or, wait ... I guess GNOME 3 did that, too.
