I thought I said that I wasn't offended.
If I got the words mixed up, then I will say it again: I was not offended by your post.
ive never seen anyone defend the idea that microsoft produces good OS's and that they are a company that is all about money, not productivity
to help people with their computers.
I have seen people saying that Microsoft produces good OSs, but I was not saying it.
What I was trying to say was that if someone has a specific OS and a problem with a specific program that runs on that OS I do not see it as a reason
to change OS, only as a reason to change (if they can not or do not want to solve the problem with the specific program) to a different program.
As a rule, I try to solve any
problems before changing to a different program, and I apply that idea to OSs.
For example, many people say that Windows is not good as a web server because it has too many flaws and is easily attacked, but the two computers that
I manage that run websites never had any security problem or any problem of any kind.
One of them is running since January 2003 and is only switch off when I have to change the hardware of when it has a power failure.
purposefully releasing an OS too early and with specific software compatability list.
That is what happens when the comercial side gets
preference over the development side, forcing a release on a specific date is never a development option.
just watch Mac commercials, those are Mac vs Windows not Mac vs PC.
There is no such thing as Mac commercials in Portugal, at least I
haven't seen any.
as for your AV problem, I use Symantec and have never had an issue with virus's unless I was downloading stuff using p2p software like
I don't have AV problems, are you answering my post or talking to funny_pom
