Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

Re: serious problems with article.

With this single observation, the author just completely lost any credibility in my eyes. Clearly, he is not a power user of screen-writing software, but none-the-less says OO is "good enough" for him - which says more about him as a screenwriter than about how good OO is for the task. A man who has so little understanding or use for the proper tools that he cannot utilize them, clearly is not a man who is serious or competent about the task.

Read what the guy does for a living:

I'm a 31 year old Datacentre Systems Architect and use Linux in conjunction with Citrix, Terminal Services and VMware. I've been known to play the odd game or two, too. In the last few days I've erased my Windows partition in favour of using Red Hat Linux 9 fulltime on my home computer.

Ofcourse everyone one of use is senstive to your Mr. I'm a giant pric needs. Most people don't even use 5% of Ms' Office features. They just want to type in a damn document, and get it done, which would be right for like 90% of everyones needs. But no, mr. screen writter is going to flame a person and program that wasn't designed for writting screen plays. I don't know whats worse, Linux zelots, or uniformed and ignorant Windows zellots.

If the author was a SERIOUS user of screenplay-writing software, and found linux meeting his needs, well, that would be BIG NEWS (and so for the rest of his list, CD burning etc.). But as it stands, the news that linux meets his Barbie needs is no news at all. Who cares. Worthless article.

Cause again, everyone in this world is a screenplay-writer. Surly it will make you feel better to make fun of the author, but that just proves what kind of rotten and bitter individual you are.

P.S: From what i hear K3B does everything Nero does.

Who cares, worthless comment.
