I need Linux . . .
by Johnny Vitamin on Fri 12th Oct 2001 16:33 UTC

if only to provide me with a reliable solid OS. I have XP too, alongside other OS's. What XP does *rule* at is bombing my system big time. Very sad for a release of new 'reliable' best-ever software from the Big Bloat. Eye candy but questionable stability. Don't get me wrong; I have had problems too with programs under Linux, probably due to my own naivety. Each time I have been able to extricate myself and shutdown cleanly. Something I imagine is nigh impossible with any of the Bill creations. Open Source has opened my eyes, and with a new release of (easy) Mandrake all my hardware is recognised and works. Top marks. I like Linux a lot for what it offers, and comparisons between it and other OS's are rife. But it's good for me and in the end, that's what counts. Kickbust it Linus, and stay true to your 'hobby'.
