Wink No heart with Linux anymore


I have windows 7, 8.1, Mac OS X 10.9 (hackintosh),
I have no heart with linux anymore,
I feel that linux is very cheap,
cheap means you can throw it away.

Sympathy might have been forthcoming if you had explained why you have become disheartened with Linux, and what features of Mac and Windows you find more attractive than with Linux. Simply stating, I have given up on Linux and decided to use something else, because linux is garbage, will generate a different response. People will see another person whining, because he or she cannot figure the system out. Honestly, we do not care if someone decides to stop using Linux. However, we would be interested in why the decision was made, if it were put forth in the form of information, as opposed to whining.

I do like linux more and more !!!

I am not a programmer but before I retired pc s where my biz since the sinclair Zx-81 that is a long time I used every system apple and pc, macs imacs androids and a lot of linux spin offs, on my pc I use Win 8 why ? Because I am flightsim addict and this is the only use on that pc, on my laptop is mint always latest edition, and now I am using my 7 inch samsing android, in my humble oppinion the majority of the private computer users can use any system they like to do the job for what these people need a computer, so in my opinion the only backdraw on linux is the gaming platform there are no games or simulations (exept for Xplane runs also on linux). So do i like linux Yes a lot for daily use, do I like Win Yes a lot for simming, do i update to Win 8.1 NO, I hate Windows, I just payed a lot for Win 8, and no a few weeks later I have to pay again to update to 8.1 not for 9 no, no just a small bugs update (I do not like to make the bill for how much I payed allraidy for operating systems during my computer time using), when using Linux you get it for free use it for free get updates for free, and when you find a spinoff you like donate to the people who made it and make the updates for you (beleave me the world is full of frees and gratis, but in the whole world there is nothing for free; except Linux.

And here I was thinking you were finished here, oh well. Windows is boring, every version (except 8) looks the same. Windows 8 brought in features that make it less usable as an everyday OS.

And every computer using Windows looks the same. So what is your point?

Sad to hear that you want to leave Linux, but of course it is up to you which OS you prefer and should be none of our business.
Have fun. Be aware that if you regret your decision you can always come back.
