yet you are still using a sad excuse for a filesystem NTFS. I mean its better than some others but is pretty behind the times when compared to Raiser.
Average user wouldn't know how to do this. Also same can be said for Linux, sometimes even devs do it for you by releasing say 2007.0, 2007.1 and maybe even 2007.2 before 2008.0 comes out. There are also tools out there to make your own custom cd/dvd that includes everything you want and nothing you don't for a painless 15 to 20 minute TOTAL installation time for EVERYTHING.
Can't say I ever had a problem with hardware support on ubuntu. It sure as hell has a better track record than Windows
can't argue with that. my experiences installing vista have also been much quicker than with XP, well under 1 hour. Still doesn't beat Ubuntu's 10 to 15 min install, or PCLOS's 10 min install, or eLive's 10 min install.
***I get it English is not your first language but I will be a spelling nazi about the word "Ubuntu" since it's spelled the same in every language since its a trademark.
|and BTW, just want to give you something for your high horse Linux debate, I am sitting on Windows Vista as I type this, had two game client run/idle, dozen Hummingbird Exceed PC X server open to Unix server along with crap load of telnet connection, 3 virtual server running in side the same Vista workstation and listen to the music at the same time.......I am sure you will say Linux can do the same..... go head make it happen, then post the long "HOW TO" on the net tell people how easy is it for you|
You really want me to do this? It actually isn't that hard, in fact it is probably easier in Linux than in Windows More secure at the least if you are using Telnet instead of SSH to other computers, or are you using telnet to talk to specialized processors, such as audio mix engines on digital consoles etc.? I do similar already.
The reason I say this is, even though Linux IS a fully capable system, economics does still play a role in its adoption. That is why we see it more in foreign countries than in the US as there are more reasons outside of the technical capabilities of the system for them to look at it.
Many governments do not want to depend on a US based Company for their computers and operations. See China and the Red Flag Linux Distribution.
Many people might not have grown up on Windows, see third world countries and the XO laptops as well as the effort to supply computers running linux in labs to schools not only in other countries but also the US. And the general feedback about these efforts are good.
There are other reasons than just technical merits of a system that determine whether or not it is succesful. See Sega, who typically had very good systems, but couldn't market worth crud and lost out to Nintendo as a result in the Video Game world. See Atari in the 80s. See half a dozen other companies that make good products but dont succeed.
China don't like Windows because they don't trust US company, they don't trust US government, they think US government will put some type of spy software in the OS/program. You can tell me, this is your valid debate point, but the fact is this, in China, alot of people will work for food, low paying wages or anything to make a living, so they tend to have a lot of time on their hand to do something like this.
|In the US, people don't have time, they just want something that work when they need it, they don't care about the up time or how stable the system is, the only people that care about the stable and uptime is technical engineer.|
|The reason why Saga and Atari failed because they don't keep up with evolution and demand from users, they write a few game and think that was it for them and they got caught by surprise from Nintendo and other game maker.|
|Microsoft had a bit of a headstart|
|Software developers (including games) are looking to make most money on each title. Since most people use windows (see above why) it is most profitable for them to release titles for windows|
|Fuel Cell cars|
|Re: The second part of the quote, have you looked at the typical chinese workday? Americans have MUCH more free time in general(With certain exclusions I am intimately aware of, trust me). So I am not sure that your analysis is in any way sound, unless you are saying that they are getting paid and working for those low wages working on Linux? In which case I return to my question of whether you are disagreeing with me or not?|
|and this is why Linux need to find a way to get driver, write program to work with all device out there then user won't be afraid to make a move. Ubuntu been doing good jobs at it. I am just wonder why is that last for 20 years with all the noise, Linux can't convince vendor write the driver for it... part of it is Linux used to be hard installation, they only make the installation easyier for last two year or so under Linux.|
|while it is good alternative problems is they cost more then regular car.....look at civic hybrid they cost 2k more then the regular gas Civic,,|
you just don't get it. its not hardware support why (in most cases) people don't want to use linux, but rather lack of commercial software that the people want to use which includes games and professional apps for work. and of course that software won't exist for linux until more people are using it to create the demand.
you are totally thinking of hybrids, not fuel cells, a totally different technology. hybrids run on regular gas as does any other normal car. fuel cells need charging stations.
