Re: I hate Microsoft.

i do. microsoft never fails to put out a half decent product at a high price.

never innovative... never high quality... never failproof...

always just okay. they emulate other sucessful businesses and force their standards down our throats. thats why they suceed... and im not really complaining either. "okay" is good enough... for now.

Re: I hate Microsoft.

Microsoft succeeds at what they set out to do in the first place, bringing a easy to use and readily available OS to the masses that has massive support. are there other alternatives out there? sure, i guess. but until those others become a better solution for the masses than a Windows OS you will never see them on any manufacturers hard drives from the box.

Dell has always had Linux. You can order a system without an OS and they will drop in FreeDOS.

Re: I hate Microsoft.

Well it's kind of hard to throw support to something that is free to begin with lol. Besides, ubuntuforums.org would provide a faster response than any dell customer support person.

ubuntu has pissed me off and will be removed from my computer once I get a drive adapter for the hard drive. The last kernal update made my computer lose complete track of my cd/dvd drive. It will no longer read from it...and in fact, the computer won't even boot from it. It was working fine till the update. Tried about 9 of the possible solutions to get it back, it still can't find the damn thing. Figured the drive might have died on me...installed a new one...still won't find the damn thing.

Between losing my drive, having to select the proper wireless connection everytime I login, having to type in a password every time just so the computer will connect to my wireless router, and having to run the touchpad utility (qsynaptics) every damn login to turn off the touchpad clicking....I am wiping it off the laptop and going back to winders. I just need to get a laptop drive adapter so I can wipe it clean in my desktop, install dos, and then install windows....

Re: I hate Microsoft.

All huge software applications have issues its nearly impossible to get around it... you can either make high quality software (that costs a ton and takes forever IF it can EVER be finished) or you can sacrifice quality to meet budget and other such marks... its the way the world works
