I am not interested anymore to go further the tirade. I have removed the substance that may cause an allergy. I have been on debating stands since the high school until defending dissertation and it is pointless in this kind of forum where no valid judge determine what is logical and what is not. If the OP was sincere he would have returned a valid answer to my challenge question in capital letters above.

But it was my mistake to have taken sincerely something insincere from the OP and unhelpful to other newbies around.

At least two things are nicer in the linux.
(1) Cost - including TCO,
(2) While displaying folders in list mode, gnome refreshes automagically whereas windoze (all versions) require a <F5> refresh.

The point is that they are different and while you can go on and on about perceived basic features and needs, both are sufficient for normal desktop applications - unless you have a specific package that runs only on one platform.

I wonder. What prompted the OP to start this thread instead initiating a change request.

The OP had a previous thread on needing a utility to match two directory trees. I would imagine it is easier to develop it in Linux using just just the shell and tools if you really need one.
