I do have Zorin installed in my USB 3 external HDD, it boots up very well, but I seldom use it.

Thanks for sharing I enjoy freedom, learning and saving so will never buy an m$ PC or CD* again. Wiped 7 with no regrets as I've used probably close to 100 distros plus desktop varieties by now and if your techie enough you can get anything windoz can do although for game$ you need a powerful PC (VMs and such,) most average Linux big gamers still dual boot for that. I think your original statement should have went here: because-shiny-things-are-fun-the-new-new-windows-v-linux-thread you'd still catch as much flak but it's the internet and Linux is better(!(-Put it to good use.))

What some of you don't realize is that future_computer was known formerly as TigerLinux.
If the name doesn't ring a bell then the "no feeding" remarks were meant to caution you.

Serious question, is this a moderator response or a member response?

I'm sure the longer term members know who Future Computer is and I am sure most of us remember he was banned yet come back in other guises and was banned again only to finally come back as Future Computer and not be banned, infact it appeared that at that time the LQ hierarchy gave up and thought oh well lets just let him consume bandwidth. It is no use having a member who just trolls, meaning s/he doesn't offer any help nor does s/he ask real questions in order to get help, and then tell everyone else not to feed him/her. If they are posting and the thread is open for responses people will respond, if there are trolls in the dungeon people will feed them, if the LQ hierarchy don't want this to occur then please clean the dungeon.

It's just a friendly nudge by a LQ moderator.

It only looks the same, because you let it look the same. Last I check ever Windows and Mac looks the same, and is far harder to customize so that statement is not a good argument.


Linux is Free, but not cheap. I don't think most of the world infrastructure would be using Cheap productcs. They use quality (CentOS, RHET, Novel Suse, Debian, Slackware), yes all quality.

If your not a technical type of person and just want to use and learn nothing, then Bill Gates is your man. He designed his system, so the everday users didn't have to touch command line and just good out of the box. Linux isn't intended be easy, its intended to be flexible in the way you need it.

Now you do have Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora which makes things a little easier, but most of us who prefer more customization and more picky will go with the root distros such as Debian, Slackware, etc.

Well either way, I'm glad you found what you like and you should stick with what you like, good luck to you.

Well i reckon linux boxes offer more variety. You customize and build your own. MAC looks the same. Desktop hardware, everything. But maybe you made the right choice. If you want flashy graphics and crap like that out the box. Stick with the baby rattles.

Very good: mentioning you're too cheap to buy a Mac and that Linux is too cheap in the same post.
I am sorry you didn't do well enough in life to be able to afford a real Apple computer. Perhaps if you work really hard one day you'll be able to do so.

Speaking from my own experience the thing I like most about Linux is it looks (GUI) however I want it to look, there's a multitude of different desktops I can use and customize.

What I like best about Linux is the users' fora are popular targets for trolls.

I am rich enough to buy the hardware best for my money.
I just don't like Apple to earn my money. So I crack it!
