I am concerned by your post. I don't like seeing anyone giving
up on Linux. I truly believe Linux is the finest full and complete
operating system on the planet. However, I do realize Linux is still
a work in progress. I will give more full definition to this belief
if you request.
> I thought I had a alternative to Win95 when I first intalled Linux.
It what specific capacity did you think you had an alternative to
Win95 ? Was it performance ? Was it utility ? Was it robustness ?
Was it flexibility ? Would you care to explain what you mean ?
Quote:> But after days of use I am determined to delete it.
"days" ? What criterion did you use to evaluate Linux ? Please be
specific in how you performed each step of this evaluation. And
out of curiousity, how many days ?
Quote:> Linux is just like DOS vs APPLE to install and use when comparing it to
How so ? Which version of APPLE software have you installed in past ?
What problems did you have installing DOS in past ? What problems did you
have installing APPLE software in past ? What specific problems did you
have installing Linux ? Which version of Linux was it ?
Quote:> I have other friend who did the same thing.
Your friend did the same what thing ? Did he experience problems installing
DOS and APPLE software or did he experience problems installing Linux ?
If it was Linux, what version of Linux was it ? What specific problems
did he encounter ?

"Beat" ? What do you mean by your usage of the term "beat" in this
As far as "user-unfriendly"ness is concerned, that seems subjective
and relative to the circumstances, doesn't it ?
Then again, if you wanted a "point and click instant add water stop gap,
it'll do OS", then perhaps you are better off staying with Win95 at this
time and then trying Linux at a future date.
Quote:> The moral: Never have high expectations for something like this.
No Frank, its only AN opinion and nothing more. Just as I have only
an opinion and nothing more...
But, another axiom you might consider is ...
"You only get out of something what you put into it..." And "days"
in terms of evaluating a FULL and COMPLETE operating system like Linux
versus a partial implementation of what M$ insists is an operating system
like Win95, as a capacity of what you put into the evaluation is nothing...
Again, my opinion.
I can suggest that in future, should you decide to give Linux a reasonable
try and full evaluation, you use one of the readily available sources of
assistance. I would also suggest, you clearly develope what your
expectations are and ASK ahead of time. There are some excellent people
in the Linux newsgroups that I have watched and learned from over the past
several years and they consistently respond with high quality answers to
specific questions. They are one of Linux's greatest resources...
