I think this is a good idea!


Read this article from the beginning to the end.
I know, there are many threads linked to this matter, but this article offers a solution.

Sod that guy, I think he's an MS Windows user who thinks that linux should be the same. Besides he makes one of the most stupid comments I've ever read, It might even take pride of place in my sig one day...

" Windows may be the devil, but at least you can easily figure out where an application installs itself. "

Ha ha ha... I almost killed myself laughing at that. Can he say "Registry"?
ha ha...

And more people would fix their own cars if it was easier...
And more people would build their own houses if construction was easier...
And more people would grow their own food if it didn't take to long...
And more people would build those ship-in-a-bottle models if it just wasn't so difficult...

Where you refering to me? I do get the difference between winbloze and linux. I do understand that linux is for smart people that are willing to RFM.

Look at AntiTCPA ( www.antitcpa.com ) and then think what will happend if more morons will use the TCPA systems driven by winbloze palladium!?!
I'll tell you : there will be more and more TCPA machines that run windows. linux will become illegal, morons will continue to buy M$$hit and if you will keep your persent system then you will be isolated, internet will become smby's property and total means of transport of spyware and finally you will end up in jail... .And that's just the tip of the iceberg!!!

WE NEED THE MORONS TO USE LINUX SO IT BECOMES MORE POWERFULL AND MORE POPULAR. WE NEED MACHINES THAT COME FROM THE STORE WITH *LINUX* INSTALLED ON THEM.
NOT WINDOWS.

OK, we love linux as it is now! But, still we _need_the morons.

Look what's happening in Spain, Denmark, Germany : the officials buy systems that run linux. This is a good thing. The CLI can be as powerfull as it was or ever more, but the GUI _must_ be stupid-friendly. And I am not talking about fluxbox or something like that here. They do just fine what they are supposed to!

I am talking about KDE and Gnome. But I see that they (KDE and Gnome programmers) got the ideea .


I agree that in some cases the guy with artilcle was out of line, but I must say he made some good points, too (the 90% - 10% installing thingy).
