What an eloquent, well thought out post! Watch out people, we are in the presence of greatness here!!

Why don't you just return to the hole in the ground/crack on the wall which you crawled out of, dispsh1t?

And the truth shall set you free......

I have been following this thread and all the replies that I have got for it so far. It made me rethink the whole thing. In the meantime, I have been getting more and more friendly with the command line.

Now I see the truth. Its actually amazing how some candid talk can straighten you out. It may hurt... but it makes you think, and that is what I like about the open source community. There was a bit of a war of words between me and Vlad_M at the beginning of this post. But what he said makes eminent sense now that I see what all of it means.

I now realize the power that Linux offers you, and why the linux community swears by the command line. I also realized the advantages of being able to load the GUI only when you need to and not all the time, a choice that you do not have with M$.

I also realized one more thing from this post. We never want to learn new things because anything new scares us. Come to think of it, we all were newbies with Windoze at one time or another. Just that we all got used to it.

I find that the same is the case with linux and the sooner you shed your fear of the command line, the sooner you start learning.

I also realized that the file mapping in Linux is actually EASIER and more LOGICAL than in Windoze.

I just saw "Matrix Reloaded" and the stuff about people being held captive by machines and minds being set free by the heroes suddenly made more sense to me than ever.

What they say is true isn't it "AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE....."

Well said vlad_m. This has been a very good thread with as near zero flame as you can get. A lot of points of view and a lot to think about.

Cool stuff mate, I'm glad that LQ had a part to play in making you 'see the light'

Just wait till you get REALLY comfortable with every little peculiarity of linux - you are going to find windows so hard to work with. I look like some sort of a noob for the first 30 mins or so when I have to use a windows system (rarely, thank God).

Cheers mate

You are TOTALLY right!!!!!!!!! I've had my linux server doing http, ftp and email for a short while now, and I thought, why not get windows xp to do this to, and compare them.... The only bad part is that I cann't seem to get windows' iis mail server working right. Does it even come with a pop server? Is it only good for sending <certain> mail? I really think there IIS stuff sucks!!

Oh, by the way, I still havn't figured out how to shut down windows remotely, poweroff doesn't seem to work, I wonder why .....

first off, never use IIS for anything but a toy, and if you do be sure you have a very good firewall going. how anyone could in their right mind use such a buggy, unsecure, half finished product like IIS for something mission critical is beyond me.....

a few months ago i decided i was going to go windows free, and i havnt looked back. i am actually finding windows harder and harder to use, cause i cant mold it to my needs (and whims ) the way i am getting used to.

thats what it comes down to, what you are used to. there is a great quote floating around "linux is user friendly, it just chooses its friends carefully". beyond being quite funny, its also quite true. once you get past that initial hurdle, linux gets very friendly, and quite easy. stuff that took me ages to learn, and hours of reading to figure out, i now do as routine, and am constantly amazed that i ever found it difficult or complicated.

arun79: im very glad to hear someone else who has just seen the light having just reached that point myself recently, i totally understand.

I *think* that there is something like shutdown.exe, but don't quote me on that. But I am sure that there is a way to shutdown remotely as I have done it before...

David Ross,

I like people who put effort in their work.. You have put a lot of effort by collecting all those URLs .. Thanks...

But some debates seem close to one another... When in fact they aren't..

The best attitude is to let debates evolve their own way... And at the end of the day, you will see they are quite different...

Actually come to look at the time stamp, it looks like a forum mistake. And I remember seeing it pop up just a few hours ago like you had just posted it to this thread.

So I wouldn't assume, just report it to Jeremy and he can move it back to its proper thread.

No it is all right Tricky Kid.. We can leave it there...

But this is the first time I see a post being posted in the wrong subject.. On any forum.. So you see, MYSQL is not perfect, not infaillible!

-----------------------------

Well, everyone at Linux seems to be content, satisfied with the axiom: Windows has its market and we have ours.. So noone seems really interested in going after Microsoft's monopoly..

That is the way I see it...

So I guess, this is the conclusion we must draw for now...

Assuming this site is in fact MySQL, then it's not a Linux problem www.mysql.com It's independantly developed.

It could however be running any one of the competitions SQL's such as PostGreSQL... So then you have to check the logs, see where the problem stemmed from, and then you can accuse correctly

A report to Jeremy of the error might help to ensure it doesn't happen again though.

Cool
