Come on Peter you have to admit that the original post reads like a
'religious zealot' telling us all of his latest attempts to convert
unbelievers to cause......
As an alternative have a read of this.....
A Linux user goes back.
By Tony kNIGits Collins.
In much of today's online news, we hear of how many people are migrating
to GNU/Linux. What we don't seem to hear much of, is users going back to
their old operating systems. The reason for this article is to say that
I've done just that.
Yes, I've gone back. After three and a half years of trying to make
GNU/Linux work on the desktop, I've decided that it's simply too hard
for the average home user. Before I go into my reasons for going back,
let me outline what I believe an 'average' home user is. Mr Joe Average
is someone who wants to install their OS, boot it up, and it works. He
wants to be able to upgrade his PC , and have the hardware work in a few
short minutes. He wants to read email, browse the web, talk to his mates
online, and play some games. Feel free to disagree with me, this is
merely how I see myself. Note: I'm not referring to Grandma using Linux,
or even my mum using it. I'm referring to average users who know a
little about their computer.
Three and a half years; that's how long I've been trying to make Linux
work on my desktop computer. Right about now, I'm sure that you are now
screaming that I didn't try hard enough, or that I'm just plain stupid.
Let me assure you that this is not the case. Stupid users don't doggedly
stick at something for three and a half years, trying distribution after
distribution in the hope of finding the holy grail of Linux desktops.
They give up in less than a few hours of trying to (unsuccessfully)
install RedHat Linux. Hear now my sad tale of why Linux isn't suitable
for my desktop.
# Been there, done that. Linux will not take me where I want to go. I
hung all the Linux CDs in my grape vines to keep the birds away.
Replace the obvious with paradise to email me.
