Windows Explorer fails and fails and fails...

    For those who are using Linux, you can install clam and use the following
    command to check all your hidden dir
    su
    password
    clamscan -r .*

    or

    sudo clamscan -r .*

  2. So, with Linux "unprotected" you have never experienced a virus?

    Gee. Who would write exploit code for 1/2 of 1% of all the computers used
    world wide. What does "any" Linux user have on his computer that the
    thieves' want? To what benefit or advantage.

    Well I think the number is a little larger than 1%, especially if you
    consider world-wide. I don't think that the rest of the world is quite as
    MS friendly as the US. =)

    One more network-connected platform. Every 'bot is worth money to a
    modern hacker, and a linux server is a very tasty morsel indeed.

    China. There, it's free Linux or free XP and/or Vista.
    Windows wins hands down. ;-)

    Such arrogance is the hallmark of Microsoft and its minions...Keep up the
    attitude and more people will go for the alternatives. In fact, I
    encourage you...Wallow in your arrogance...Take lessons from Steve.

    I have never experienced a virus and I have never found one using
    clamscan or rkhunter.

  7. Face it Bill. You can't GIVE Linux away in China. Everyone is too bust
    pirating and stealing Windows XP and Vista.

    Whatever you may think about Linux - IT IS NOT A WINNER!

  9. Frankly I always preferred freeBSD to Linux anyway. It was closer to Unix.

    Ehh Richard, I wouldn't quite say it like that.

    I just upgraded to the alpha version of the latest Ubuntu today and I gotta
    say and let me tell you the gap to windows is getting extremely narrow.

    The only two weak spots I honestly really see remaining:
    - Third party application/game support
    - Handling video driver update when upgrading the Kernel could be smoother
    as I had to manually reinstall my nVidia driver.

    Though to be entirely honest, I can't even 100% say on the nVidia driver
    issue that it isn't an issue with my system. This install is on it's 4th OS
    release now has been switched from release to beta to release and now to
    alpha release.

    So on the driver issue I had, I cannot rule out a fault in my own system.
    I'd have to see how things behave on a clean install to be able to rule my
    system out and don't feel like doing that.

    And this is looking from the desktop perspective. The only thing I still use
    Windows for at home is to play games on it. I literally reduced Windows to
    nothing more than my PS2.

    From the *server* perspective however, having two windows servers right now
    I can only tell ya one thing. NEVER AGAIN!

    One of the servers just got infected so insanely bad with viruses that it
    was just pathetic. It went from 0 viruses to swarming like a friggin
    beehive overnight.

    There is no way I will ever again in my life use Windows on a server...

    You prove my point...I would probably have never continued posting on
    this newsgroup..except people like you Frank, pissed me off from the very
    first day. And I do occasionally have a question, because I work on
    Vista infected computers. But I would probably have more luck looking
    for an answer on Google, than from you and your self-important bull
    shitters masquerading as experts on an operating system that has less
    benefit to me than the Vista Strawberry (and Vanilla) sugar wafers that I
    purchase at Dollar General. Try saying that last sentence three times,
    as fast as you can while chewing gum...If you can do that without
    spitting out the gum, you are an MVP.

    If Vista would have been half the operating system that Microsoft
    promised, I would probably never have started using Linux again last
    August. But it wasn't. It sucked when I downloaded and tested it out.
    It was a late Beta, but even at that time, I could see the future of this
    inept OS, and without further ado, I installed pclinuxos. No problems.
    Smooth sailing. With your rose colored glasses you completely ignore and
    defend the major deficiencies, claiming that it is running swill on your
    computer..(pun intended).

    Don't talk about my dear friend Doris. She is cute, adorable, and very
    witty, areas in which you are severely lacking.
