The whole idea behind mandrake 10.1 is the fact that I'm not supposed to be a computer programmer to run the thing. No I don't know anything about binary.... is that what it takes to run this!!! If it is I'll put the XP back on it in a New York minute. My work as a writer depends on this thing working so you can laugh all you want or ridicule me for not knowing binary but with an I.Q. of 192 I'm not a stupid f###!!! OK!!! The installation is only a couple of days old.... I've got little or nothing personal on the thing so if someone can log on and tell me what the hell, let em!!! I thought it would be cool to be microsoft free... didn't expect to have to learn to program to do it!!! I installed wine and the thing is self disintegrating... I am currently negotiating with Mark at Core reguarding my writing articles for the site. I placed a querry with him shortly after this post.... maybe I should just wait for him to help me out.... at least I don't have to put up with geek attitude from him!!! The whole problem I see with linux so far... is that there's just too damn much of it!!! For a newbie like myself (2weeks) I go online and there's about a thousand different places to go. With limited knowledge about the system it's entirely confusing. Can't someone concentrate solely on a debian, or mandrake, or fedora, red hat..... nooooo. Everywhere I tuurn I get one or two sentences about mandrake followed by three or four paragraphs about all these others. By the time I get to another sentence about mandrake the first two are buried under a bunch of stuff about allllllll these other systems that I couldn't care less about. I see now why so many people shy away from linux and this is why. No not everyone can be a programmer... if we were then where would you shine??? The other thing I have trouble with is the fact that although I have an official distribution... I cannot connect to mandriva online. Theres another issue there as well.... my official distribution comes with all these helpful bookmarks that are completely useless because the url's are for mandrake and not mandriva which they so conveniently changed thhe name to. Now you tell me.... how insightful is that???
