There is no gravity...the earth sucks...

Linux just lets the earth suck a little less.

I know exactly the problems you are running into, and there is a simple fix. The problem lies in the interface between the chair, and the keyboard.

the kind of people that made this thread are also the kind of people that make me wonder why they registered for this place, linuxQUESTIONS.org, and not linuxsucks.org. you dont flame linux here, and you dont type in all caps, and you dont try to troll/flame other people just because of their opinions of what OS they know and love. just from this post, i can tell what kind of guy he is. not a proprietary guy, hes the kind that doesnt even try. and thats even worse.

I personnally think, that anybody who is older than me, and posts shit like this thread, is severely immature. I started using Linux, when Slackware was releasing CD's with the 1.2.1 kernel on it. (Long Time ago) Anyhow, I was only say......15-17 ? OK.

I am now Running Redhat, Ive had problems, but Im not acting like a little bitch cause I am computer illiterate. When I say problems, I don't mean, $#%@!#$%#!$% WHY DOESNT MY MODEM WORK ARG @#$%#@$%$#! Stuff, I mean Like, something that I didn't know how to do right off the top of my head, so it took me 2 days to figure out EXACTLY what I needed to do.

Thats all, I had to post, cause, its early morning here, and I read this thread oh, about a month ago, when like it had only 5 replies to it.
Bye!

I think this is now much more suited to General than to Linux-Hardware.

Was that first post even written by a human being? I'm afraid you failed the Turing test

This user is clearly completely incompetent.

How can you not get mandrake working.

To say that unix is poor compared to windows is plain riduclous. 95% of web pages are on unix/linux boxes, which I think tells you something about the relative merits of various OS's.

Maybe that person should have learnt just a LITTLE about PC's before diving into linux. Unix poor? Pah. process independance:
unix: 1979
windows: ????

Those who don't understand unix are destined to reinvent it - badly

A rather late conclusion , I might say ; It was suited for that , the moment the threadstarter touched his keyboard...

Is it possible that someone could go back to Windows quietly these days? Sometimes people get to a point where they're just fed up with all the new things they have to do to manage their OS, and contemplate quitting. Some of them ask for reasons to stay(cleverly disguised as a rant), while others just leave in a violent explosion.

I believe most of the people here(at least the ones who learned Linux on their own) have reached that point before(the frustrated part, not the ranting part), and are willing to help others through it. But if you absolutely have to leave, can't you do it quietly? Or at least turn off caps lock.
