If it werent for Microsoft there would be no Linux!

Why?

Linux only came about because people already had PC's, people ONLY HAVE PC's because Microsoft made it affordable for them to do so. Without Microsoft, only Businesses would have computers.

Microsoft GAVE US home computing, and Linux was born from home computing.

thanks for the ranting. You seam to have a nice lovely way to say goodbye.

Maybe I should just ignore your point here, but I'd liked the idea about actually telling something, too much

Bwaaaaaaaaaa, ha, ha, ha...
And what are you doing here?

something about dropping support for 95/98/ME/NT is... nah never mind.

Windows is still the easiest OS to install and learn as well, it has brought computing to the common man, and redistributed quite a bit of the power in the US. There would have been no Internet boom without Microsoft.


UNIX is not free since a long time. It costs more then 20.000, and requires other expensive machine architectures then your IBM-PC. Compared to that, Windows is a very cheap, and Mr. Gates is an excelent businessman.

He is not a techie, and his commercial aproach to a lot of software prevents fast evolution, which is why you are likely to be wrong.

I won't go into the depths of how the internet originated, but it wasn't because someone/Microsoft had a commercial Good Idea(TM).

I do hope this analysis from Microsoft itself doesn't make you puke http://www.opensource.org/halloween/halloween1.php It's about Linux, UNIX, and the free software / open source movement .

Simple. clear, concise, and to the point. Cant beat it with a stick!
I see that you're a happy person again. Live long and prosper.

I found it funny due to our glorious thread starters constant ranting that there is some kind of problems with mv and that his command line arguments work in windows, when they don't. Get it now?

Man you are just repeating what I stated.

Is there a point to you being on this forum?

Did you need something or are you just trying to show off.


[edit]

Windows is not too bad as an OS - you should stick with it.

Well, excuse me mossy, but megaspaz was having a dig at me. So don't get stuck into me, I'm just defending myself a bit here

[edit]
Oh were you getting stuck in? or am I just paranoid? Nope, I'm paranoid... fang said, what I was repeating. Kudos to fang for that bit of info


FG.

The Internet did NOT start with Microsoft... Thats not what I am saying.

What I am saying is that The WWW, and all that comes with it would NOT have undergone such a BOOM had there not been PC's in the Home.

Everyone knows that Al Gore "Invented" the Internet.... geez...

sorry fatgod, i wasn't having a dig at you. i was commenting on the idiot poster who said mv was broken when move works exactly the same way in windows.

and oopsh*tmeister, if you still can't get it through your head to shut up with the rantings and to just ask your question, then you are beyond help, you putz. have fun with spending hundreds of dollars with ms and winblowz. and by the way, apple's the one who gave us home computing. without apples, bill gates wouldn't have even thought about gui interfaces. at least you shut up about the dos being better because there's less commands to learn crap.

Apple?

HA.

You mean the Proprietary Apple, dont you? Thats why Apple, like Tandy, lost the PC war! Apple tried to lock up the PC industry and failed! Proprietary Hardware, Proprietary OS... didnt work. If it were left to Apple, only huge corporations would have been able to write software for their machines.

Both Apple and Tandy had a HUGE jumpstart, and they both blew it.

If the computer industry would have been left in Apples hands... again... we'd still be in the Dark Ages.

Before there was Apple, there was Tandy and the TRS-80.
