Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 12.10 has been released, sporting the rather... Interesting tagline 'Avoid the pain of Windows 8'. Two main features are that websites can now be treated as actual applications, integrating them into Unity. The divide between local and online content when searching has also been softened, which, they claim, makes it easier to find what you're looking for. On the server side, it includes the Folsom release of OpenStack, "Cinder, for block storage and Quantum, a virtual networking API. Ubuntu's Metal-as-a-Service bare-metal provisioning tool has been updated and now supports Calxeda hyperscale hardware based on ARM".

I repeat, to get for Windows the equivalent power, functionality, and quality of desktop applications that I routinely install on my KDE4 desktop, avoiding trialware, adware, crapware, shovelware, shareware, bloat and all kinds of other dubious-ware that pervades the Windows world, one has to spend at least twice as much on a Windows desktop compared to a Linux desktop with the exact same hardware.

No joke. For real. I kid you not.

Then of course when it comes to your time and effort (have you ever waited through over an hour, and no less than four reboots, for Windows to get through an update? I have) ... one simply can't get consumer Windows that comes anywhere close to the excellent KDE4 Linux desktop experience.

Pretty much everything quoted is absurd & completely backwards. It's blatantly obvious you're either incredibly ill-informed or just trying to push buttons because nothing you've said has any merit or credibility what-so-ever.

Your post reads like this: "Liar liar, pants on fire. What you said is wrong, and what I say is right."

Could you have possibly put forward a lamer, more inane, unsupported and unsubstantiated response if you possibly tried?

Dear Lemur2:

You have talked about your experience and also given data, some of it can be checked by anyone using a virtual machine, for example. If someone doesn't want to, there's little that we can do.

> [To "ILoveBeer":] Could you have possibly put forward a lamer [...]

There's no need to engage in personal fightings. There is a moment in discussions when you realize that the other part simply isn't listening, they have their opinion and they act like getting closer to the truth was losing. And they don't like losing.

Those conversations can be ended with something like: "I've given enough data. Arguing with someone that doesn't listen is futile. My time is more valuable than this. This conversation ends there." or just "I've given enough data. Going on this way is futile there. My time is more valuable than this. This conversation ends there." and you peacefully ignore whatever is dumped later there. Anyway, practically nobody reads those conversations up to those nested levels; it's better to give some data in the first levels of discussions, where someone reads them.

Doing otherwise will convert "reading news" in "a harmful time sink". Lately you seldom write in Osnews, some of us have missed for months your informed comments, it's better to write for us all instead of for someone who doesn't listen or... for someone worst:

"I submitted an article and trolled Lemur2 upto 300 comments."
http://www.osnews.com/thread?504542

Don't get caught, please, cut the conversations when they arrive to the third level or so, do it for us. Your time is better spend talking for everyone instead of for someone who doesn't listen.

Thanks for your comments!
