That's easy, but you're not even trying! Just compile your kernel without support for your root filesystem.

I think this was a mediocre troll. Trolling was clear from the username and the thread title, which I don't like. I think a troll should take you by surprise (but that is just my opinion). The lack of nuance in the post was good, the apparent lack of any knowledge on the subject is also good.
The unconventional use of punctuation and capitalization is MANDATORY in any troll post, I can't stress this enough, and I must say I see only half an effort there.
The 'Post Scriptum' so contradictory to the content of the post itself was in itself quite good. Again, a good troll contradicts him/herself.




I think this would have been better:

Thread title: Nothing works?!?!!
SO Iam up for Summer on my grans pc and shes linux on instead of WINDoWS and what do i find!?: EXE files dont even work the flash player is rubbish firefox crashes every 5 seconds and youtube stops working......... "Pidgin" messenger sucks eggs! Theres no features YOu cant download anything, like EXE FILES!!!!!!!!!!
And anything else Ive forgotten!!

Why does Linux SUX!?


ps this is a question and not bashing
See? It's much clearer now that the OP has trouble downloading (exe) files through Pidgin and Youtube (Flash) is the cause of Firefox crashing.

Linux has far more features than Windows, far more customization.
As far as Firefox crashing, I have no idea what would cause that. I can't remember Firefox crashing. This includes using the testing release of Ubuntu (9.10), Gentoo, openSUSE, Fedora, Slackware, etc. I've had so much experience with Windows and IE crashing, I couldn't even begin to count. It's ridiculous.
Every time anything crashes, it takes Windows with it. And something is constantly crashing. I have had no viruses on Windows, no trojans (spyware, though), it all works fine, I don't download random things and get these sorts of problems. It just crashes. And crashes. And crashes.
You use Windows XP and get 3 choices of colors, without paying for additional software like WindowBlinds or using the classic style, which even then you can do a dozen things with unless you customize it yourself, just to use the old-fashioned Windows style - because it just can't be beaten ... no one could possibly top Windows Classic. It was a work of art. It's ideas like the Windows Classic Look that make Microsoft a 90%-of-desktops operating system.
If you can't run any Windows programs on Linux, you have no idea what you're doing. And if you make a habit of making posts like this to irritate people, I would get on some medication.

Actually, I do not moderate (read: I don't have close-thread ability here) in this particular forum. (Who does is viewable at the bottom of any forum main page) And to date, since the thread is in General, and there's nobody abusing anyone else, and the discussion, while ridiculous, is not heated or offensive, it remains open.



If none of the above were true, I'd be happy to oblige. EDIT: Ultimately, one of the mods in this forum may close it anyway, at their discretion.

Pidgin is perfect for me, I installed it once on Windows because M$N Messingyer sucked more.
It supports M$N, Yahoo, Goole, AIM, etc. All at the same time

You know, if the OP 'claimed' that this was a question, rather than a rant, then he/she would have replied by now. I am pretty sure after the only post by said user, he/she never returned to even read the polite helpful replies. What a big baby/troll.

I noticed that they didn't make one other post before I replied ...
At least the responses will help people curious about it in the future.

Or wonder why we are making fun of someone not here. Discussion is one thing, but this thread is getting (or has gotten) boring.

Some puppetmaster is rolling on the floor now. Closed until he responds with 20 reasons why this thread should be opened up again. No repetition or hesitation.
