It won't be long before they'll be needing their driver disks for Windows 7 anyway.
Trolling? Sorry but you are the one coming in here with claims about microsoft doing this and that and in the end all your argument comes down to is speculation and no substance at all. If anything, the only person trolling here is you.

The thread starter uses Linux and was saying how he's impressed with Windows 7, so it's a mixed debate. I explained why WIndows 7 shouldn't and doesn't change anything.

Yes it is speculation, it took you till now to get that? Read things properly next time.

I don't believe you ever explained why Windows 7 doesn't change anything, you just spewed about how great Linux waas most of you do. You sounded more like a pissed off school girl because the other girls walked off and took their dolls with them. I find Linux users to be very bitter people with the mis-guided arrogance of a mac user.

On another note, Nvidia released a Macintosh compatible GTX 285 (http://www.evga.com/articles/00479/). Wtf was the point of that? Quake3?? UT 2004? CUDA maybe? LOL putting a GTX 285 into a mac is an insult to Nvidia why waste the time? If it doesnt say Mac on it, have a gay little half eaten mac logo and cost $2000 no mac user would buy it anyways.

Maybe you didn't say exactly that, but most people with more than 5 functioning brain cells, ie not you, can do something called "reading between the lines." Observe.

Oh, and this is amusing, a little forum puke calling Google whiners and "inexperienced."

It seems even people with such resources and money like Google they can't knuckle down and just do it without whining.
But then AlphaWolf pretty much put you in your place.

And here come the troll posts.

Anyway, you talk like you have to compile the modules by yourself, and practically every distro, whether it's targeted for desktops or netbooks comes with their modules preconfigured and pre-installed... wireless-tools, wpa_supplicant and some form of module manager suffices (that's where Networkmanager or DHCPCD comes into play).

Excuse me for the question but... have you ever used a WPA/WPA2/WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK network?
My home network is 504-bit WPA2-PSK. I tried installing Ubuntu through VMWare on my Mac. GUI looks nice and pretty, standard module appeared to accept my SSID and WPA key, and worked the first time I ran it. Loaded it up later in the day, didn't work. Tried again, didn't work. Tried it the next day, it worked. Tried later that day, it stopped working. The only way I could get it to run consistently was to change my network encryption to WEP, which is basically no encryption at all.

I have far better things to do with my time than to try and troubleshoot something that works perfectly well on all my other computers and game consoles. I also dabbled in Linux on my PS3. That worked OK because I was using a wired connection, but aside from the initial novelty of having Linux on a PS3, I never used it.

Just a bit of fun. It's shame you can't tell the difference and let your buddies off the hook. You're the one picking posts and making them something they're not. If you think Linux is the only OS that has network problems, think again.

What do you expect from a Windows fanboy forum. As a friend of mine once said, "As long as Windows doesn't rape my family or kill my pets, I don't care". It would take something like that for Windows users to realize how far their head is stuck up their own arse.

I'm off, the end.

I got one better for you. Why don't you stop trolling before I put you on vacation? Regardless of how you feel or think about me, I'm not about to get sucked into your little childish game.

I don't agree with the jacked price but you have to understand it's a special flashed bios GTX285 that runs on a Mac Pro, the closest thing to a PC that Apple has in regards to expansion slots and a big case. The Mac Pro is an overpriced workstation, not a gamer's box, although it could be used for one.

Apple fans don't buy a Mac Pro for games, they use it for video, CS4, animation and other programs that happen to need a strong GPU, that's all it's for. It's not being sold as a gamer's card, but more of a workstation card. Think Nvidia Quadro Workstation. Also, the Mac OS supports hardware acceleration and it supports that as well. So with that, I don't get why you say "wtf was the point".

Mac users are a strange breed of user.

They are usually young wealthy kids who drive caddys or bmw's at 17 years old and live in the bay area where MAC is the dominant species their.

Typical cop-out of someone who's been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

In one sentence you whine about people putting words in your mouth, yet in the very next sentence you do exactly the same thing. Point me to exactly where I said that Linux was, as you just said, "the only OS that has network problems."

Using a OS is more a matter of mentality and habits than any other thing, mainly...

Professionally, yeah, I've seen quite a lot of Macs in my work places, for graphics design they still have some outstanding power, specially in the printing business

But at a personal level, depends on your needs... that's the real point about it, people are usually 'told' instant messaging equals to Windows Live Messenger, e-mail equals to Outlook or Windows Live Mail and web browsing equals to Internet Explorer (or any other kind of software).

While it's nice you have a complete set of features to do your daily life without too much worries, it's not the same for everyone, the kind of user that just wants to have some form of e-mail support and instant messaing without all the bells and whistles can practically resort to any OS, like Mac OS or Linux or any other OS out there.

Thinking about it a bit deeper, Macs are to computers more like Bang & Oluffsen or any other kind of expensive brand is for the digital lifestyle, because for many people Style does matter, it's just a matter of choice (even if Macs are highly overpriced in my opinion).

And now returning to the true nature of this thread, would like to make a question...

In the myriad of YouTube videos about Windows 7, you can see the new ribbon interface for Wordpad and Paint but... wasn't notepad going to get it, too?

Seems like every video have it with the traditional interface... maybe it's just my imagination... any hint?

What are you just trying to waste the readers' time then? AKA a form of trolling? You don't come to a forum dedicated to something that you've already established that you don't like, and then you try to prove its bad by speculating why unless you're just trying to be an ass.
