I figured windows out so much so easily and if linux cant do that then linux sux and shouldnt be used. someone needs to make a windows/linux os then
First point. When you READ, do you actually READ the whole sentence, what part of the end of 'you can play with it before you actually install anything' was too hard to understand? See, we are trying to help you and make this easier for you. Knoppix is a GREAT testdrive CD. Take it for a TEST DRIVE, see what you LIKE about it, then find the distro that has it.

Second point. Wow!, someone who has mastered Windows!? Master Linux, then try to impress us.

Catch you on the flip side...you can have 100% of the money you paid me for my advice back.
Unsubscribed this thread, so save the Linux sux for some other reply. I won't get it.

Have a read of this.

He has asked this question before (in differing ways) with the exact same results. What he wants is for one of us to go around his house armed with every distro out there and install and configure them for him. So he can go 'no', 'no', 'wait a minute....no, 'no', etc.

I'm not entirely convinced about this "Power User" claim either.......

Had to search to come on back. Basically, if you read his other posts, you will see that the poster is basically a mormon with an m missing. Read them, actually pretty humorous. I WANT, I WANT, no, no effort on my part, do all the work, NOW, make it work, Linux sux.

But... that's what I want to. I know, let's try the same thing on the Windows boards and see how long they remain polite.

I love how the 'power user' needs helpin fdisking his Linux partition.

God, you are hilarious, LOL!

A 'POWER USER' of ANY operating system can easily learn how to use another one, IMO.

Besides I don't believe for a moment that you can become a 'power user' of anything if you refuse to do any reading.

And besides, if people's choices mean anything, your chosen nickname is very telling: TROLL!

Netizen, now that was funny! Thanks for the link. Still laughing at the quote 'I guess you can feel proud that you can minimize programs to the task bar or system tray.'

You might want to have a look at this as well:

http://www.linuxiso.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12576

However something does puzzle me: sometimes his English is quite good, like in your links, and sometimes very poor.

I wonder what that means, if anything.

Wow - bad mouthing us all on a different forum (although fairly mildly).

Looking through all the post links above (and a little reading of my own), we can summarise the needs as:

I want Windows (but don't want to pay for it)
I will go with the next best thing
I don't want to have to do any looking around - I want you to find me this distro
I want complete links - don't make me find them myself
I don't want to have to do any work at all
I am a power user (in Windows, allegedly) so I want you to respect me
I don't like all this difficulty
I want you all to recognise me as a Windows power user

Much of the above is pretty self-explanatory. But let's look at the Power User claim.

From Microsoft:
Quote:
Ideally, Power Users should be able to perform any task except for the administrative tasks described above. Thus, Power Users should be able to perform per-machine installs and uninstalls of applications which do not install system services.

In practice, Power Users cannot install many legacy applications because these applications attempt to replace operating system files during the Setup process.
So yes, he is a Power User.
