ok, i'm drunk and i'm shouldn't be posting this, yet it will be fun to see how fast the mods shut me down. it's not a flame or anything, yet i just feel that i have to get somethings off my chest.
1. who really cares what distro you run.
if you set the thing up properly it will do what everyother one will do.
2. is google so hard that you can't take the time to figure things out?
don't people just want to do things for themselves or do they really need someone to hold there hand all the time?
3. not just google, but search here.
this site is set up to make it so that you can check to see if the same question that you are asking has been asked before. now am i the only person that uses this thing, or just one of the few?
4. man pages.
that's what there there for.
5. ok, the gpl community is very nice in offering help as to how to get things going. so is the ms community. the only difference is that we get to see the CODE. yes we run a more secure enviroment. we make sure that the bugs are out of the apps when, the first time, they are noticed. not when we decide to make an update available for our subscribers.
i really hate that little abrevitation, but what the fsck. you have the damm thing allready install on your system, why don't you use it?
now i feel that i give good advice to those whom come here and to other help sites. yet sometimes i really wonder how much poeple try to get things going. i've learned alot by reading other's posts and by the reponces to those posts, yet it seems like the same questions keep getting asked. not in the way that there is a new distro problem, a new app number problems, but just in general. maybe i'm wrong. i could be. i've been known to be wrong before. but i've been running linux since my first windows box gave me a bsod a couple of years back and havent looked back. i might be one of the few, but i have found most of my problems, and solutions by hacking away on this beautiful thing that a very nice gentleman gave to us as a project, something that he didn't think would turn into what it has, yet has stuck with it.
