I would like to know what you guys think of Win?
MS Windows is a product of the most unethical of business practices. It's an example of bloated and aggressive incompetence that dominates by lack of competition, courtesy of cowardly greed from software and hardware vendors.

How's that?

but when people come into contact with Linux they will be treated to horrible looking brown poo. Poo? Do you realize that poisoned rats can produce blue feces ? The medical treatment for thallium poisoning is ferric ferrocynate, which causes patients to have blue poo . Eww. Don't want poo on my PC!...

But I use my left hand to handle the mouse, even though I'm "normally" right handed, so my hands kollide Then you might favor Beryl under PCLinuxOS 2007, because, for some unexplained reason, the rightside Alt key is used. I thought the Beryl feature was broken in PCLOS, until I tried AltRight afte...

No cube.... nothing nifty. Beryl runs sweet 'n' swift under a properly coaxed Bianca. If you see the taskbar previews and "meandering" effect, then Beryl is on the job. Now to make it dance... To get the rotating cube, press CTRL and ALT and drag your mouse while holding down the LeftMouseButton. C...

if its any consolation, i run feisty as my primary system I've just installed Feisty on a spare HDD partition. It was rather nasty in the way it has sabotaged my Mint installation. When the Feisty GRUB launches Mint, I see Bianca's splash screen for a couple of seconds, but then I find myself in te...

I like it! After test-driving a dozen or so Linux distros, over the past 3 weeks, I got to a point where I just didn't want to look at another KDE desktop. I started actively seeking distros that default to GNOME, which led me to Mint. The only KDE that doesn't make me wince is that of PCLinuxOS 20...

I've just crossed over from MS Windows, spending the last 3 weeks test-driving almost a dozen Linux distros. The first was Ubuntu Dapper, with which I was smitten by GNOME. I might've stayed with PCLinuxOS, as it feels most familiar to MS Windows, but its software repository is comparatively skimpy ...
