I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO INSTALL DRIVERS FROM MACFS. BUT, NONE OF DISTROS WILL ALLOW ME TO INSTALL !!!ALL ERRORS.

CPU HANGS SO HARD ! SOUND BROKEN, SCREEN FLASHING......ETC

I PAID FOR DISTROS CDS HOW MUCH WASTED !!!



I WILL NEVER TRY TO BUY ANOTHER PC JUST BECAUSE I WANNA TRY NEXT LINUX INSTALLATION.
I AM SO UPSET THAT I'D THROW ALL THESE DISTROS CD I PURCHASED AWAY.I HAD WASTE MY VOLUABLE TIMES,MONEY JUST WANNA HAVE FRIENDSHIP WITH LINUX.
2 MONTHES DAY AND NIGHT,DOZEN BOOKS...............CDS...........???
AND EVENTURELY FOUND OUT THAT I AM A STUPID PERSON WHO DO TRUST THOSE ALL YOU. TO SAY, LINUX WINS AND WINDOZE SUCKS. SOLID ROCK LINUX SYSTEMS AND KISS THE BLUE SCREEN GOODBYE !!!

BUT...

I WAS TRYING TO BUILD WEB SERVER AND PLAY SOME GAMES,WATCH DVD...
BUT TIME I SPENT FOR LEARNING AND INSTALLATION IN 2 MONTHES,STILL DIDN'T ENJOY THE SYSTEM YET,OLD PROBLEMS STILL THERE,CRASH HARD.
IN MY OPTION, LINUX IS THE WOREST POOR PRODUCTS EVER BUILT IN THE HOLE COMPUTING HISTORY !!!JUST BECAUSE IT CAN'T TREAT GENERAL PUBLIC WELL...
YOU KNOW WHY HARDWARE DRIVERS ARE ALMOST NOT SUPPORTED TO LINUX.
BECAUSE HARDWARE MFCS DON'T CARE ABOUT IT,USER ARE CONTINUELY TO TRY LINUX AND FOUND NOTHING ONLY A FAKE SYSTEM AND GO BACK TO WINXP.
WINXP TREAT PUBLIC VERY WELL,U KNOW THAT ? EASY INSTALL NO HW ISSUES I TELL U !
MANY PC I TRIED.I CAN'T SEE ANY HW/SOFTWARE PROBLEMS.YOU CAN CLOSE EYES AND LET GO INSTALL AND CONFIG,RUNNING.
WATCH DVD IN 30MIN,PLAY CS 30MIN, WEB SERVER IIS ....AFTER INSTALLATION .
AND RECOVER,RESCUE SYSTEM FAST,TROUBLE FREE.
IF YOU HAVE 10 COMPUTER AND TRY TO REINSTALL SYSTEMS AND RUN SERVER.CAN YOU TELL ME IF U CAN FINISH THEM BEFORE I DONE ALL. WANNA TRY.
IF YOU ARE A COLLEGE STUDENT AND DOING LINUX THINGS I BET YOU GONNA FAILL.
BECAUSE U MAY HAVE NEVER EATEN FOOD,STUDY UR BOOK AND SLEEP FOR MONTHES TRYING TWEAKING KERNEL.
DON'T BLAME MAFCS.THEY JUST NOT CARE ABOUT LINUX PUBLIC COMMUNITY.SINCE NEWBIES DON'T LIKE LINUX SO WHY THE HW MAFCS HAVE TO ?
I DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT U ANGRY OR NOT. ONE DAY YOU WILL FIND THAT LINUX
DREAM IS NOT WHAT U THINK OF. I DON'T EVEN CARE IF THE LINUXQUESTIONS.ORG ADMIN MAY KICK ME OF.BUT PLEASE ALL OF YOU WEAKE UP SOON......REALLY

I BET ALL OF YOU WHO LOVE LINUX SHOULD BE 95 % WHO WILL STILL KEEP WINXP IN THEIR HARD DRIVE ???MISS WINDOWS FOR RUNING SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS.

NOTHING MORE WANNA SAY,BUT I REALLY DISAPPOINTED LINUX THAT I WAS LISTEN TO YOU SAID ITS GREAT.AND I WAS LIKE A TEACHERS PET....
I REGRET WHAT I WAS THINKING AND DOING. NOW KISS GOODBYE OF BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH OF LINUX !!!FOREVER.

GOING BACK TO WINXP I ENJOY I REMEMBERED.BY THE TIME YOU GO TO BED TONIGHT I WILL HAVE BEEN PLAYING WINDOWSXP 3D GAMES (CS,MOHAA,BF1942...DVD,WEB SERVER)FOR HOURS...

MICROSOFT WILL RULE,LINUX WILL SUFFER IN THE LONG RUN.....
WHO NEED TO LEARN AND SHOW OF HOW YOU CAN TWEAK LINUX,KERNEL..PROGRAMMING...
BEFORE YOU CAN FIGHT WITH LINUX PROBLEMS AND LOSE HEALTH...AND DOING ANTHING?
WHO WANT TO BUY ANOTHER PC AND CHECK HW COMPS JUST TO COMPROMISE WITH AND MEET LINUX STANDARD ...?
AND THE SYSTEM IS NOT SURE IF IT REALLY WORK ?I DON'T LIKE TO GAMBLE..

WHY DO U LIKE LINUX ?

BECAUSE I THINK LINUX CAN KISS THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH GOODBYE !!!???
HA HA HA SO FUNNY. LOL LOL

I don't have time to read so much...

I have a couple of DVD's to watch... On my Linux PC. Which is running the latest versions. Which I paid nothing for.

By the way, I'm sending this email via an open source web browser.

Have fun with Windows!!

Ranting can take the pressure off, but in the end it will not help you.
You've posted some threads and you received some help.
Maybe it didn't fix everything, but at least we're all trying.
For whatever reason some people need to have more patience.
If you have that, we're still able to help you get on with Linux.
If you don't, then maybe Linux isn't for you. No one said it would.


Crashmeister, 320mb, if you're not willing to help, then refrain from making these types of remarks. It doesn't promote what Linux and the LQ community are about, it isn't constructive and way too easy to kick someone who's already there. You can regard this as a moderator warning.

It's the ancient hardware you're running it on. Linux is so bleeding edge, 3.6GHz P4's are already obsolete.

for fsck sake stop shouting

you must be really dumb not to be able to get linux running on those systems.

and maybe it's me not understanding your bad english, but linux doesn't have a BSoD, that's just windoze

and no, linux has never crashed on me, windoze on my dads box does all the time though.

//moderator.note: For this utterly useless and abusive post you get an official warning from me. The fact you've got +200 posts makes it only worse, you should know better by now. Like I said before, if you can't contribute to a thread in a respectful and constructive manner, then don't.


And that goes for anyone who will try to pull off something like Randomblast or others did.

Unhappy

Truthfully, pleasehelpme has some valid points
Linux, like windows, has it's place. At the moment, that place for linux is not on the desktops of most non-enthusiasts, or on the desktop of most offices (i say most, it is getting there, but slowly)
I work for an IT consulting firm and consider my self a techie. I've been using linux on and off for over 5 years. That no way makes me any sort of expert. I've decided to get back into linux after quite a long spell away and

I'm currently using the Suse 9 distro. I've got in on both laptop and a desktop. But my laptop still dual boots win2k (cause thats all my company supports, and i need MS Exchange access, VPN etc) and I have another desktop running winxp (i'll make that linux if and when they release halo for Linux )
I found the usability of Suse 9 improved since the last version i installed, and miles better than when I first started linux. But I still had to do some tinkering and I can't get my Kyro II to run with it (anyone seen my other post can help??? )

The various distros and great linux community are helping linux evolve so that one day it will rival MS for the desktop. But right now, hardware/software support, lack of standards between distros and the domination of MS are obstacles to be overcome by Linux.

What we don't need are fanboys shouting "Linux rules, MS sux, your dumb" etc... as this discourages new comers and promotes the idea of linux "elitism". We need more of the thing that this site provides, support and encouragement, for those brave, but not so informed, users who want to give another OS a try.
Sometimes I am frustrated by linux, in that if it ever becomes as usable and supported as Windows, would it have lost its appeal to tech-heads?

There's always Mac OS X i guess...
