Linux? Say What now in the What What!
Finally, I have decided to upgrade Windows 95 or should I switch to another OS, but which one, I have been hearing a lot about this thing called Linux. Yes Linux that’s it, I’ll switch to Linux, its damn near FREE!
The voice in my head (Supreme OverLORD): “Go to www.Linux.com
my child, they will make it all CRYSTAL CLEAR!” Say what? Supreme OverLORD: “Go to www.Linux.com
you idiot! Or I will STOP talking to you.”
Off I went! I read and I read and I clicked and I searched and read some more. Had sex with the wife a couple of times, went to sleep, woke up and I read some more. Boy those chicken select sandwiches from McDonalds are really good.
Unfortunately, Linux.com is loaded with more garbage intended for people who prefer to be called “Geeks!” lets face it I am a Idiot and so is 80-90% of the general public. We just want to turn it on, insert the CD & click Setup? It’s true, we don’t read the Licensing agreement; it’s easier to click “I Agree”, besides you want to use the program don’t you? I am so ashamed of myself
Oh YES! My point: Linux is dying; it has been conquered because it has been divided, and God know how many brands/version are out there:
Which one do I choose?
How much will it cost?
Will it or data generated by it be compatible with other version of Linux?
Will it be compatible with Windows?
Are there applications out there for that version such that I can do my job?
Is there support available 24x7?
What about security?
Is it only for hackers-geeks?
What’s a server?
In contrast, there is one Windows, One Mac OS that is compatible with every other version of said OS. Get this; there are hundred of thousands of programs out there most that can be had for free or next to nothing for these OS.
In summary, I am going to upgrade to Windows XP. Sorry gentlemen, I just want something that works 90% of the time, but I’ll settle for 80%: I don’t want to waste a second of my time reading about partition magic, boot sector, passwd files and GNU and when I create a presentation, I want to make sure that it will work on the computers at my job, otherwise I’ll be fired.
Ps: Its really cool that you can make that thingy blink and rollover; keep up the good work and maybe when you guys get you act together I’ll switch to Linux.
