    No, it doesn't interest me at all. The only times that I have used any
    variety of Unix operating systems is when I was paid to do that. That
    situation no longer obtains.

    I'd really rather wait for a couple of weeks - there are likely to be a
    few little gotchas.

  5. You know, it's kinda sad, really, when the lintrolls have to
    spam-vertise new distros in a Windows newsgroups desperately seeking
    converts.... Is there a telethon planned? Maybe something like one of
    those pledge drives public radio and TV are always doing?

    Well the Linux community doesn't have a $1Billion to spend, like Microsoft
    when it comes to announcing its "latest and greatest". Ubuntu is gaining in
    popularity by word of mouth from regular endusers. Don't feel threatened
    Windows Fanboy, just because something as elegant as the new Ubuntu has
    come out. Only the smart will convert over anyways.

    Love and Kisses,

    Good review here ...

  7. I have never said that any linux distro is more user friendly than XP.

    I have also said that Vista is as non user friendly as linux.
    Therefore Vista is Linux.

  8. If anyone that wants an EASY Linux, Ubuntu is the way to go. It's perfect
    for the beginner and has the best compatibility that I've found.

    I'll have to download the new version. I hope a LiveCD is available now. :)

    And yet again it still wont work on my system! Makes it very hard to even
    try it out when the live CD crashes. Coaster # 5 of Ubuntu is in the
    wastebasket.

    You're coming on a VISTA USER GROUP and getting all offended when someone
    dares to defend Vista? Get a life cupcake.

  19. Actually, I didn't even defend or mention Vista. I simply pointed out
    how pathetic and desperate the Lintrolls were making themselves appear. I
    daresay that a lot more people would be willing to try Linux if they weren't
    put off by the antics and manners of so very many of the Linux "advocates."
    The Lintrolls, with their irrational, almost religious, fervor, are doing
    their "cause" more harm than good.

    And, just for clarification, I usually have one Linux distro or another
    running on a spare machine for experimentation. Who knows? Maybe if I ever
    come across a distro that can meet all of my needs, run all of the
    applications (not watered-down open source "equivalents") I want to use, and
    has device drivers readily available for anything I want to add, I just
    might switch to Linux on my primary machine. Linux has come a long ways,
    and makes an excellent server, but it's simply "not ready for prime time" as
    a home consumer desktop OS.
