The world keeps turning
Back in the late 80's I got my first modem can't remember but I think it was a Hayes 1200 baud modem. The computer had 1 meg of memory and Huge 30 meg hard drive. No CD, no USB, the sound came from a tiny builtin speaker.
Installing hardware like a sound card or CD was a time for breaking out the horse shoes, and 4 leaf clovers. I had to fiddle with IRQ conflicts and DMA channels not to mention that there were jumpers every where.
Wow have things changed! I never would have guessed that someday I would buy a PC that didn't have a floppy drive or even need one. Or get a USB flash drive the size of my thumb that stores more data that my first three computers would all together hold.
I guess bongski55 is kinda frustrated at how hard it is for him to keep up with the latest and greatest things in world of linux. I know that how I get when I don't the right tool for the job. You can correct me if I'm wrong.
Up until about four months ago the only PC software I used was made by microsoft or at least ran on a microsoft operating system. If it not broke don't fix it. If you can improve it go for it. For the last three months I have been using Linux and windows about 50/50 and have found features in each that I wish the other had.
Over the years we have all seen software packages get larger and larger. DOS 6 came on three floppy disks, Windows 3.1 came on six floppies. Now I have sitting on my desk a Debian distribution that is on two DVD's.
What I am trying to say is that bongski55 needs to look at his country and say; we need to improve our infrastructure so that we can keep up with our ever changing world.
