Just been trying it using Mint4win and I've got to say, being a usual GNOME user, Fluxbox is actually a very nice desktop environment.

Re: Stupidest reasons for not using Linux over Windows

I heard one today, as a matter of fact. It was in a Waffle House restaurant, of all places. A guy, who supposedly worked on computers at a local Best-Buy store, told me it was illegal to use Linux. According to him, Linux is a "hackers" tool that can be used on notebooks to break into systems. All ...

Re: Stupidest reasons for not using Linux over Windows

I got a corker with a Youtube comment recently. I'd said that Linux was better than Mac or Windows (in my opinion a fair statement) and the reply I got back was, to say the least, quite explicit and moronish ("In your dreams c**k sucker). I simply replied back, coolly: "Thankyou for that very cultur...

"Linux isn't as smart as Windows."

Some of these are particularly good at raising my blood pressure...
