I agree totally. This week, just for the hell of it, i decided to wipe my system, and reinstall debian, this time making it debian unstable. It ROCKS. AA works properly finally!Originally posted by comprookie20:
I enjoy it #[email protected]~ because this is my hobby,and I get satisfaction from interacting with the OS.I get the felling that I'm running the computer instead of it running me.I never get bored as there are so many things I can change.So many options and I don't have to run to the store and buy anything,everyone helps each other out as long as you are willing to do the work,as everyone has been there.The more I learn the better it gets,with no end in sight.david
I agree. Its only as complicated as you want.Originally posted by B3gbie:
I started dual booting recently and since getting Linux online I'd never go back to using Windows.
What's the difference? Well, Linux is free, stable, customisable to the nth degree and only as complicated as you want to make it.
I'm a complete Linux newbie and found it remarkably easy to set up (using Mandrake 9.2 ), easier in fact than Windows to install and get things running (which is something we've all had to do many, many times).
Having looked around online a bit I've found a msn messenger (without the Microsoft bloat), VB environment and loads more, so you don't have to lose your 'windows only' software, just find an equivalent.
Do it and find out the diffeence for yourself.
