to pitch in on the stupid and lazy debate....i'd wanna actually say that LINUX is for the lazy.
TASK: download and install a (decent) web browser, email client, and chat software:
1. open IE
2. Go to www.getfirefox.com
, click download, double click icon, next, next, next, finish.
3. Go to www.mozilla.com/thunderbird
, click download, double click, next, next ,next, finish.
4. Go to http://gaim.sf.net
, click on download, double click, next, next, next finish.
VERDICT: went to 3 websites, had to manually navigate to the downloads, had to run 3 individual installers.
IN LINUX (debian):
1. open terminal
2. "sudo apt-get install mozilla-firefox mozilla-thunderbird gaim" enter root password
VERDICT: no manual navigation for finding the installer files, just 1 command and let 'er rip.
what i am trying to say is that in windows it always pissed me off that when i needed an app, i needed to hit google to find a download site, download, then go through the bs installer. its just so much simpler for me to crack open terminal and give it a command to set up my stuff...let the computer worry about finding, downloading, and installing the latest version of the app, not me.
