If someone is experiencing any sort of pain due to their computer platform, they have a choice. Either you can believe you have wasted a part of your life which you will never get back on something that is really not worth the effort, or you can believe that the befits you are getting are actually worth the pain. Since the latter doesn't require you to admit you made a pretty dumb mistake, most people go for that, since typically people don't like admitting to themselves they are stupid.

Ah... so that's why there are so many rabid Mac and Windows zealots. Don't be too hard on the fanboys!


Next weekend I am switching back to vista, because the bizarre bugs, all around instability, and poor performance that I experienced when pushing ubuntu even a bit past normal usage are driving me bananas.

Never used Ubuntu, but I did use Mepis when they briefly employed the Ubuntu package repositories. I agree that there can be bugs in the Ubuntu packages. However, Linux/open-source is not Ubuntu -- it is much, much, MUCH more. Try a more solid distro/project.

Furthermore, Vista might have some bugs/instability. I think I have heard of one (maybe two) problems.
