My husband and I want to go back to windows

Postby Sunny Rabbiera on Wed Feb 13, 2008 1:07 am

Really I want to go back to windows and so does my husband, because he and I have too much free time on our hands now
Because of linux we dont have anything to do anymore, no more virus scans, no more spyware, no more de frags, and barely any restarts after updating...
Linux is too boring :mrgreen:

I swear that's the first time I heard somebody want to waste their time with combating all the scum sucking bottom feeding social misfits in this world.

If you and your husband, really have all that time and want to spend it on the PC, wouldn't it be more advantages to try new distros/packages, expermint with different methods of doing things? Spend time on all these fourms helping other people solve thier problems. People that think Linux is to hard.

I think that was sarcasm. lol

A little bit of tongue-in-cheek humor. :-)

I also went through that stage, at the end of your session you can just shutdown your pc and all is well.

When I get bored, I generally just do something to brake my system and then TRY to fix it. :oops:

Sometimes I can, Sometimes I can't. But I make new friends along the way, and often times learn new things. But none of which cost me paying royalties to that other lagacy OS.

Sunny,

If you're looking for something to try out for you and your husband, you may want to try a multiseat setup.

Here is my method to Install Windows XP for others
Turn on the computer 1min, insert disk 1min, format HDD 20min-restart, install to HDD-40min-restart, enter key code 2min, install MB driver 5min-restart, install video card driver 3min-restart, install network card driver 2min-restart, install sound card driver 2min-restart, install printer driver 4min, download and install first set of updates 10min-restart, download and install SP2 45min-restart, download and install updates for SP2 15min, download and install updates for the updates 5min-restart, get the true M$ software package 3min, download and install W Media player 15min-restart, download and install IE7 10min-restart, download and install more updates 6min, download more updates 10 min-restart. Find all the software CD's and install all of it CD burner, games, whatever else someone has purchased and can't live without. Now it is time to download all the internet stuff Adobe, java support, and what ever. I won't mention any of what I have seen on peoples computers and they wonder why they have problems. Also figure out a security solution whether from an ISP, security company, or the free stuff that never protects everything well not the free stuff. Now it is past time to defragment, scan for viruses, spy ware, Trojans, and worms. I almost forgot now you have to configure the computer sound effects, change the default screen resolution it always puts up 1024x768 and what ever few other things you can do. Now you are done. That was easy. Don't forget to check for updates for Adobe and other software installed. If more software was added repeat the steps from defrag on. Also I tell people to call me in 6 months so I can fix windows because they are going to put all the software, I told them not to, onto there computer and it will slow down like a bicycle with flat tires.
Since you are going back to Windows fallow these steps and DO NOT download and install free software from the internet and you will have a reasonably nice experience.

In comparison Mint takes for ever. 1 hour to download, 10min to burn to a CD, 10 min to install the live CD, 25 min to format and install to the HDD, 20 min to download and install the first set of 40 updates, 35min to download and install the second set of 158 updates, then you have to sift through all that free software 20,000 packages available, then you have to look in the helpful forum and find out how to configure the desktop and use all that free software.

How many restarts did you read before you stopped reading this post.

I suggest that if you want to keep really busy, first build yourselves a very high-specification PC, something which will just about manage to run Macrohard Windoze Vesta. Having done that, you will then be able to spend your kids' inheritance by buying licence renewals (after the one change allowed) every time you need to reformat the hard-drive when the system had become clogged up with crap and deadly infections. I hope that you have similar skills to the late Harry Houdini, because when you run Vesta, your hands will also be well and truly tied! Be aware that if you purchase a top of the range PC with OEM Vesta pre-installed, your feet will also have a large ball and chain attached - to prevent you feeling flushed with success! When you have finished swanning around with Vesta, I recommend that you open your vista and return to Mint! It will take but a few minutes and you will then have time to go and earn back that inheritance, and also write Bill out of your will!
