im going back to windows,, ill keep a small drive i have with linux on it but im not giving linux anymore attention.. ive wasted too much time already for an os that REQUIRES that you to do all that you need to do.
sure if i had older hardware it would probably run fine but then again it probably might not who knows....

i install windows it runs i can install drivers and the hardware works i can update windows and it dont cause my windows to become useless.

linux isnt for me i knew that when i went into this but i wanted to learn but not when i have to program the os myself screw that, mandrake 9.2 was releases what 2 months ago and STILLLLLL you can not load the OS and have hardware accelerated video/graphics,, so boys you can click hardware acceleration under xfree all day and night but its not hardware acceleration.
im a hardware person i always have been i know hardware,,,, and i know windows,, i dont neeed to learn how to program just to run an os,
its got a long way to go ill give it another year or 2 before i try linux again but i hope by then its actually an os that can be used for more than hackers and scripters and servers. (and seeing the way mandrake and redhat BOTH hadnle memory management i cant see for one second how anyone would use it for a server os. that os is a memory hog and isnt handling memory very well. i dont like to hear my PC bog down when im opening stuff. and linux does it hardcore.

oh well,, i tried it,, it didnt work for me. and more than likely never will.


thanks for the help guys i do appreciate it!

(i dont know computers, uhm ok ill let you believe that if that is how you justify linux being more buggy less secure and less stable than windows.)(it IS the only os that is worse than windows,, you do realise that right ?)
Everyone has their favs.
I like linux, Redhat.
I run a small file/game server for my home. Windows Kept giving me probs and had to restart a couple times a month.
Linux (rehat) on the other hand has been running flawlessly for 3 months. (file server, http server, quake3 dedicated server. ftp,ssh servers) and that is an old compact with 256 meg ram, and 350 pent processor.
Also running quake3, enemyterritory, UT2K3 on redhat desktop with no problems.

Windows gave me a hard time, I checked forums and other places for fixes and still probs, not to mention watching for viruses.
BUT... I do not talk bad about windows, I think they have a decent product for some people.

Linux didn't work for you?
OK then
Bye Bye now.

game servers ftp servers and web servers was one of the MAIN reasons why i wanted to run linux,, but after seeing the lack of hardware graphics, and the rediculous amount of crap you have to go thru to get it, and the shady memory mangement, along with the way linux file system and file and partition layout is,, well,, i can believe someone hasnt redesigned and optimised linux yet, i guess people are happy with a hog instead of a mean sleak penguin. oh well. after seeing that i wont be running any servers no way to instensive,, to much work for linux,, it bogs down a system when just doing dormal stuff in the regular os let alone trying to handle and manupulate a server and all the traffic.
i guess ill stick with the much leaner and controllable windows server environments.

at least they are making the major linux distro's in Live versions,, they run fom cd.. so when a new version comes out i can at least try it before i install it.

thanks again for your help gentlemen.!
