Default Why I Switched to Linux.

I have been using Windows XP since it was released and I purchased my
first Tiger Direct system from Home Shopping Club and it came with
Windows XP installed on the hard worm drive.

From the very first day this system had a lot of stability problems
which I thought was the hardwack but I could never really pine it down
to a cad or chipper.

I set Windows up to update automatic and I installed all the serious
packs but still I would get blue screens of dump.
I even had a friend whip the system and install Windows ME which
worked much better but still crashed at least a couple of times a
week.

Last month I discovered Linux Suse and I installed it and my system
has been so much better.
Linux has not crashed once on this same system and I have so many
programs that I haven't even started to scratch the surface of what
Linux can do.

Anyone who is having stable problems with Windows XP should try Linux
because it might keep them from buying new systems.

Linux is great.

Well what do you expect on that POS computer. You might as well have bought

You should not have posted this information. Linux is a cult. Governments
take a dim view of cults (US=Waco, France=Scientology, China=Falun Gong,
etc.).

Your name has probably already been harvested by the authorities, no matter
where you live.

Your best course of action is to repent before it's too late.

Best of luck - you'll need it.

i've seen linux on everything. as opposed to windows xp. which in

computers.

I doubt you're using linux, but, if you are, then I would have to agree
with certain morons in alt.os.windows-xp that, in your case, linux does
make you stupid.

There is a 64 bit version of Windows for the IA-64. Windows NT used to
run on MIPS and Alpha. Windows CE runs on ARM.

But ~ 90% of the desktop market is IA-32, and Windows certainly runs on
that. That's "everything" for all practical purposes...

"used to" is worthless.

Windows CE is another piece of **** only good for making a 400mhz RISC
processor run like a 16mhz 68000.

I think you'll find that the palm top and sub-notebook computers that run
WinCE have ARM processors that run considerably slower than 400 MHz.

Actually, a lot of individuals won't need a 64-bit
architecture for home use until some killer app that needs
that kind of address space is for sale.


Well thats the theory anyway. Perhaps we can have a nice stately transition
to 64 bit then as opposed to the nightmare that was the 16/32 jump.

I am curious regarding the rhetorical aspects of your nick.: Is Phil Da Lick
a corruptation of Phil or Fill Dalek; as in Dr Who & the Daleks; or a
stroking motion with the tomgue whilst tasting the subject and depositing a
film of saliva on said subject? If the second option; how does Phil or fill
come into it. Also, mainly to satisfy ss's curiosity as he reads; what
exactly is the subject or target of "Da Lick" or Dalek?

"Rpumelling"? Is that one of the Berkeley r-commands;
you know, rsh, rcp, rlogin, rpummel? Is there a secure-shell
alternative to that; spummel doesn't seem to work on my rh distro.

Just wondering...

I believe he was simply responding to the subject line, not any actual prior
post. At least that is the way I read it, and his response not only made
sense, it was hilariously funny, in a clueless-angry-child kind of way. :-D

I thought the '**** eatin scavenger' bit was particularly brilliant. Yet
another troll who has some issues he needs to deal with concerning the GPL,
perhaps.
