Hey guys...before we get mad at Cheryl...we need to get mad at the main culprit...Bill Gates. He's got something inserted up her behind ..I can't imagine your pain Cheryl

just a joke Cheryl, dont take it personally...however, if you want to revert back to windows...that's your deal. Why did you come here to post about it though?

Sieg Hiel!!

Guess It is not so much the operating system, it is more a choice of freedom! Sure would be nice if we had this choice with our Govt. Huh?

Well, since this'll be closed soon, let me add my last 2 cents..

Linux can be hard to use, hard to work with, and hard to install. But that's what we are all here for, so if you get frustrated with something, ask questions or search, it might help you more than simply giving up

For my 2c worth, I do feel that there is a place for both MS's. I personally use Mandrake 8.0, 9.0, Smoothwall 1.0 and RedHat 6.2 on various machines, and the stability and power is awesome. However, My son uses Win98 as all his educational software needs it, and I can't get WINE to work properly. I also use Win 2000 Pro at work, as there is a company policy there.

I am a great believer in the Linux / GNU / opensource world, and I also believe that SUSE, Mandrake and the other are pretty well ready for the home / business market. However, people must have their own choice.

Cheryl, as has been stated elsewhere in this thread, if you are having problems, PLEASE post a topic in the forums. Anyone here will be more than happy to help as far as they can. However, if it does appear that Linux is not able to support your needs, use Windows. However, do try again in the future. Over the last 4 years that I have been using Linux, it has deveolped far beyond what I thought possible...

To cheryl and ALL others who feel the need to do so.


Sorry, I felt it needed to be said. I imagine I am not the only one who is sooooo sick of all this bellyaching. Go use Windows already, hell go use AOL for all I care just STFU with all the "I'm going back" threats please.....

Where is A_K when you need him?
