Default Re: linux makes me masochistic

Been a while since we've had a good Lin vs Win thread on the boards.

It could wait a while longer imho.

Of course it's a legitimate answer many times.

Linux is free. No one messes with my PC, it's MINE. DRM prevents you from playing back your files on whatever you want. Windows is married with DRM down hard.. no way I'm putting Vista on my PC ever. I'll be on Linux (and happy because everything just works out of the box, no need to fiddle with warez and extra programs to do stuff) until Windows 7, and then see if that's worth "getting".

You've never tried to get SLi working with the GF8+ series, have you? So much for "Linux" working out of the box...

Though, I must add, for every *other* piece of hardware in my rig it was detected instantly and worked flawlessly. The only issue I ever had was getting the drivers for my GF8 cards and SLi to work properly.

That's NVIDIA's fault, not Linux'.

But when drivers don't work in Windows, that's suddenly MS's fault? Both OS have their upsieds, and they also have their short-commings. Which one really is better all boils down to preference, and nothing more.

It all depends on what the computer will be doing. You won't set up a Linux PC to be an AD server in a Windows network (although, you could). And you wouldn't want to run a http/ftp/anything really on a Windows server. Oh, what's that you say? A windows update? Oh, it requires a reboot? Aww, how cute.

I'm sorry that you don't understand the severity of this, but a reboot should never occur on a server...

Aroused? You have a sick mind...

LOl, Ok.

From one Linux user to another..this thread was posted as a vent only. No major business decisions or build or troubleshooting issues are being covered here. I was keeping it light in an attempt to keep the peace.

You are obviously above all that.

Peace, and have a nice life.
