    Gone back to Windows again

    I left Microsoft products because there were no drivers that I needed with MSWindows. Linux did have what I needed. Been with linux since the 1990's. 1999 was probably the year of the linux desktop for me. There is so much open software for linux that Mswindows can not compete. We are going to web based services anyway, so now the platform is less of an issue. The pad maker is the issue, not linux. Put credit where credit is due.

    The way I see it, if you gave it an honest try (and 10 years is a bit past "honest try" heh), and it didn't match what you wanted, more power to you in finding what suits your needs. I left Linux too (albeit in a drastically different path...I ended up migrating to OpenBSD), so I know where you're coming from. Linux isn't a "one-size fits all" OS, and it *shouldn't* be...but that's an entirely different story.

    Sorry lumak, you must have missed the part where I said I used Linux only for over ten years. Blissful ignorance would be for one who has not seen the virtues of Linux. I know, I was like you too.

    After another trouble free week, I have no viruses or spyware as I know how to use a PC and a network. I don't feel the urge to return.
