Re: Think about it...

I for one, Am very grateful of all the Developers involved in linux. Perhaps I appreciate this because I grew up in the days of closed software and hardware. For those that never went thru these earlier days I hope you appreciate what freedom actually means. The freedom to do whatever you wish. Thi...

Re: Did not know accepting,UPDATES is dangerous

This raises the question why were you offered new updates only recently including a new kernel? - I suspect the answer may be: because you have used Julia for the past 6 months without ever installing any updates at all. :wink: Yes this is correct, I have also looked at the log file you mention, it...

Re: Did not know accepting,UPDATES is dangerous

Re: is it true that you wont be able to put linux on a pc?

If I had the money, I would go buy a brand new computer, and then format it, and install Linux, if I couldn't I would take it back, and say "look at it, it dosn't work", get my money back. After all said and done, if I ask the sales clerk, can I install a different OS, and they say "sure no problem"...
