Yea, the OP has a point though. There is one thing that I never liked about Linux. I mean, I could never get those pesky spywares to get me on Linux. And where is my BSOD? I can't even get a kernel panic! WTF IS THIS CRAP!




I just now noticed GrapefruiTGirl as a mod? Congrabulations! Too bad there is no celebrating emoticon... Hrmm, speaking of which, maybe I could put that in my suggestion thread perhaps? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ing...-744200/

At this point in the game, I suspect because the thread has been moved to General because it was determined that, for the time being at least, the OP is gone, never to return. And as long as the discussion remains friendly, folks are welcome to contribute their thoughts on the matter.

"Pidgin" messenger sucks eggs!
Theres virtually no features
You cant download anything, like EXE files
And anything else Ive forgotten

Why does Linux SUCK!?


PS: This is a question and not a bash
When using Windows, you are under its control. When using Linux, it is under YOUR control.

One of the many unwanted features, if not irritating features, is that Windows can't be shutdown at your command if it is installing updates. Another unwanted thing is that you don't have permission to read some files even if you are administrator.

Free your mind from the control of Windows!

I hate it when that happens, which also brings me to another point. There is no kill command under windows, and shutting down a misbehaving process under windows is on occasion non functional. Especially if the process is in the middle of some kind of hardware access, like burning a disc. Whereas under Linux/*NIX when you issue a kill command to said process, that process is no more, even if it is zombied.


Although there is no native kill command under windows however, I think there might be if installing a special toolkit. I cannot think of it off the top of my head, but I remember something on Microsoft TECHNet, or somewhere, that offered certain cmdline commands for windows, such as listing processes, and other NIX-like commands, even a kill command, but I just can't think of where I found it right now... ARRGHH....


(yea, that frustrated emotion would really help right about now too)

He is right about one thing, Flash is junk, regardless of platform.

He forgot Java. As far as I'm concerned, Java is junk too, and no amount of cream or sugar can remove the awful taste in my mouth. *hurl* (yea, we need a hurl emoticon too)

Speaking of Java though, I think I'd like a cup of coffee to go with this baby dolphin sandwich... Yep, canned chunk-light baby dolphin was on sale the other day.

I prefer mild or medium blends of coffee though.

I agree on both: Coffee is GOOD!!! And the programming language, well, I have extremely little experience writing Java, but I don't like it either. And with the exception of Firefox and in ***extreme*** cases Azureus, I try not to run any of it.

But I like my coffee STRONG and flavorful. I have two coffee presses here and a fancy bean grinder, which get a lot of use. Triple-Americano anyone?

I agree: let's lock this thread (or delete it outright) and just move on. This kid obviously should have "asked his grandmother."

"Every operating system other than Windows" ... well ... isn't Windows. Nevertheless, "miracle of miracles," there is more-than-one operating system on this fine planet, and every one of them seems to be doing just fine, thankye. While this may come as an utter and complete surprise to some people , I don't see why we need to keep-open any discussion of it.

"Moderators, if you please..." G-O-N-G-G-G-G-G-GGG!

Hey, Cool it guys!
Linuxisbad doesn't deserve our time or effort. No need to answer him as the question "Why does Linux suck?" really doesn't deserve an answer.

Sounds like Grandma knows what she's doing to me.


P.S. Sweet Chilli Sauce goes well with Dolphin.
