At this point, I don't see any reason why this thread should be closed, because as long as everyone makes an effort to get it back on-topic there is still hope for it.
I would like it closed as it is just going to turn into a joke...As i am sure you see.
Anyway it is resolved and no input is needed...
I will attempt in the future to not take things so personally.
Maybe as a moderator you could tell M D that his approach was wrong,i admit my response to him was in haste,in a pissed off frame off mind..I am learning that handling these issues while pissed off does not work... Maybe he (MM)could have offered a simple,response indicating that i miss read his intentions..end of story..His angry response only proved that he likes to take shots at people,likes to be little the "Newb and Dope" If thats what this forum condones i wont be here long.
We are in the Newb section are we not? All the old timers out here,do you not recall some of the stupid questions,the stupid ways you handled things when you started.?
I did respond with sarcasm to him because he could have offered advice after his joke...Maybe taken a more polite route.That is all.
Maybe i was wrong for taking things personally...It is just that being out here trying my ass off to learn,trying to forget XP is a chore!
I do not have a lot of time,i have children,i am not in University but in life University,have a full time job,trying to learn a new way.At times this gets very frustrating,especially when the kids want back on the PC and you have to tell them that you F----- it up! And you get told "told ya Linux sucks"or "My computer teacher said it sucks"..At times one becomes extremely frustrated..
I am learning some patientce as well as a new OS...Linux is another world compared to MS,its similar in ways and getting easier every time i screw something up and learn...Maybe old timers could be a little more patient and refrain from attacking newbs..Maybe everyone can remember the days before they became programmers..and recall that while they were learning they were also impatient and frustrated.
I dropped MS and am glad i did...I am learning Linux and glad for that..I found this forum and am very glad for that.
My mistakes on Linux and out here are allowing me to learn.
Thats why i am here.
