I think they write buggy code because they hire coders and not programmers.

That's what Linux is for. Windows is for people that don't know how to use computers.

I agree with you there.

And Linux is for arrogant twats who think they are better than others?


I use Linux as a file server in my house because it is free and very low maintenance. I would never use it for a daily PC.. it's just not any comparison on that front.

Good servers, though.

Arrogance has nothing to do with it, and I'm no better than anyone else. Linux is open source and Windows is not, and that's the difference. This could never be an issue with Linux.

No, it's for intelligent "twats" who like to have control of their own belongings.

("just isnt any comparison")..


You got that right.... lol


Some of you people are soo sad... it is.... well..

Many Linux software have # documentation. And add that with the RTFM approach to helping people, and you see how irritating it is to get software to work smoothly.

The "RTFM" approach is FUD.
I've not once encountered anyone telling me to "RTFM" when asking for help with Linux.
How irritating is it? Tell me..
Because I never have any problems getting software to work smoothly.

You are spreading useless F.U.D.
Stop contributing to the ignorance that is soo rampant around here, Please.


If my entire family, and all friends can use Linux daily, with no problems (and they are computer illiterate),
Some of you folks who can't seem to manage.. have serious issues.

a friend on the "inside"


Not saying it is not true but until you can name names it's just another unsubstantiated rumor. Who is this person? You need to be able to prove this person is really "on the inside"! Your word is not really good enough in this case even though I do tend think you could be right!

They are probably using Windows clones like Ubuntu? It doesn't matter how computer literate you are, you are going to spend hours upon hours fixing things, and you are going to run into crappy documentation, and if you aren't using distros like Ubuntu and want to customize things most users will not be able to help you. You are in denial if you don't think that's the case.

lol,
That told me all i need to know about you..

I see this conversation is going to go nowhere, quickly.. lol
I'm not going to converse with someone who doesn't know what they're talking about,
not if they don't even care to be factual.
Your last post clearly showed me that you do not.
So you enjoy yourself..
and I'll enjoy "being in denial".
lol

I don't think these bugs are written to spy on your average Joe, these are bugs written for global spying. Governmental stuff.


None of this is true, Microsoft does not write buggy code on purpose, when you patch new stuff it is quite common for new bugs to appear, ask any real hacker (script kiddies dont count) and they'll tell you the best time to exploit code is when a new update comes out, because the first one to hack a new vulnerable spot, is usually the one who can make money off it the fastest, but honestly there is no reason to still be using Windows, when Linux is far more powerful and stable. hell you see those little daemons (the icons on the bottom right hand of your screen) I could exploit maybe 2 out of how ever many you have running and gain access to your computer with a RAT.

It's openly admitted online. Google "Linux documentation is crap" and see for yourself what even Linux advocates say, since you have not the experience needed to know this. I am both computer literate and have used technical distributions. You will spend hours getting software to work, the documentation will be #, and you will ask users who will then say RTFM, and much of what you search on the web will assume you have a distribution like Ubuntu.

Nice to see you mate.


@547000, If I wanted to talk with someone who just repeats what they hear and read, without experience (clearly)

What are you talking about? spending hours getting software to work? your just spewing crap that isn't true, im running a fully customized version of Gentoo, it took me a total of 2 hours to install, set up a GUI, and install commonly used software, and I used the Gentoo documents as a guide, not a single problem was had.

No comparsion? are you kidding me my Linux box boots in 7 frickin seconds, from the moment I hit power to the log in screen. Windows 7 a clean install takes at least 15-20 seconds.
