Re: People that think Windoze is better than Linux..

People are taught to use Windows in school, that is why they have to go through a learning curve to use Linux. In a study of people that had never used a computer before, nearly all participants though that Linux was easier to use! Novell conducted the study. Linux is secure and needs nearly no mai...

Re: The New Open Source

Marcush, Your commentary is thoughtful but neglects to mention the 800 pound Gorilla in the room. That is the FOSS licensing. Regardless of how you feel about R. Stallman, His foresight on licensing is what has made FOSS possible and enduring. Understanding the GPL, and derivatives, is the key to a...

It is commonly said that Linux is growing up, along with it is open source in general is maturing. What does this mean for the vast world of open source, well it means that Open Source has gon...

C++ IDE

One if the mayjor reasons I came to mint was because I had some basic programming skills, (completed some simple projects) and wanted to go multi platform before becoming to comfortable in Windows. But so far I cannot find any good Integrated Development Environments in C++, maybe I need to lower my...

Re: People that think Windoze is better than Linux..

I disagree with you fundamentally Marcush, and further, I think Apple has been providing that standard for some time (and Windows is cloning IT!). However, I think Linux has been ahead of both other OSes for a long time, in security, stability, speed, power, even eye candy. I like Windows. Because ...

Re: Lose the "Linux" in Linux Mint

Re: what language should i learn

Ok my suggestion... C++ it is much more versitale. All C code is compatible and you may just find a lot more compatable libraries for it. But in reality what you pick is really in what interests you. Java - Web programing. C++ - App programing/game programing C# - more in depth game programing C - S...

Re: A request to the community

Because it's a heated, but civilised discussion, plus I like arguing. I'm sorry, but there's no way you can compare the renewed browser wars to the OS monopolisation or even the old browser wars. The only reason any browser exists is to try and gain control of the browser market (or aim to be good ...

Re: A request to the community

but the problem is that due to their dirty tactics they raised the barrier to entry high enough that competing on features isn't good enough. Look how long winXP survived: Vista was only released when the industry was nearing the tipping point for the excess of features to override other concerns. ...

I write Micro$soft just to emphasise to anybody that all it's after is profit, and they have used dirty tactics in the past, then stalled the legislation so that by the time they get found guilty, have to pay the fine and change the software a little, their tactic has already worked and made them m...

Re: Why does everyone copy Windows and Mac?

That is how it started, but sometime around the second page it evolved into how similar linux should be to windows originally. and there was an argument about the what min is in the OS market on a theoretical level. Way off track but this is beginning to become my favorite thread.

Hey, the last thing I want is to start a flame war. :( I think it's my fault, maybe I haven't really expressed myself clearly. I don't want to exclude anyone from the world of Linux who wants to come in. But Linux is not for everyone, some people just are not interested. (Also, the people I'm talki...

Re: Why does everyone copy Windows and Mac?

The problem with Linux as a desktop OS is many of the Linux developers and fanbois. They fall in four groups: 1. They are not even aware that most people don't care to learn geek (socially blind) 2. They don't care if most people don't want to use Linux (loners) 3. They don't want most people to us...
