What os do you use, and for what reason..

I have used Windows my whole life.
reason why i started with linux, is that i'd like try/learn something else.

i have seen that windows is mutch easyer in use than linux,
just a few clicks and something in installed,
in linux is it a bit diffrent,
for most stuff you need packages (most rpm stuff)
but linux is better for server stuff..

o well, what do you think of both (or other) os? ph34r.gif

Your using RedHat!, get a newer distribution like Ubuntu
I dont know any version of Windows where you can open a application and have hundreds of  software to install. In this way Linux is much easier and other ways as well, it seems people dont speak about how Linux is easier than Windows in many repects.

I started computing on the x86 platform with a 386, with M$ dos, en some stupid sting called windows, which you only started when you really needed it, some stupid programs used it, but most could be run in good-not-yet-so-old-dos (This is not my opinion now, but even back then i was thinking that way).

Some years later i was still using m$ dos on my (in that time very fast) Pentium II, when i realized that was a bit strange. Already some time before that, someone installed SuSE 4.3 in my system, and i have played around with it, but didn't really like it.
Because of this dos-on-pentiumII thing, i bought Red Hat 5.2, which i thought was quite ok, and upgraded later to 6.0.
This was also the time when you-know-95 was released. The first thing i hated was that the text interface was very disabled in contrast tot the GUI, and that the GUI was started automatically. When some of my school mates where talking about programs that reported when it's going to crash (so you could save your work), i knew it: No winshit95 for me.

Later on, i was working at a computer store, and YouKNowWhat98 was released. And i really thought: If it's really good, i'll go for it. But no, the crash on the TV Demo is still my favorite, and no 98 for me. En interrest in Linux only got better.

Some time later, i switched to SuSE because it seemed better for what i did, and i still use that.

Nowadays i don't even look at whatever billysoft is doing with it's products. I just hate them, and have good arguments for that. I even know that my good-old-dos was not ment to be as good as i thought it was.

I'm now a full-time Linux user, don't want (or have)  anything else, and thinking about the switch from SuSE to Gentoo.

I would like to experiment with MacOS, but buying a computer for that perpose seems very strange to me. Maybe, some time, i will try to install Mac OS for x86 on my system, but i don't think it will be anytime soon.

Sorry for the long post :-)

The biggest difference between M$ stuff and the rest ? Most stuff is secure by design, M$ stuff is secure by accident.

bash# killall gaim
killall: Don't shoot the messenger !

If we have /dev/powerbutton, what would touch /dev/powerbutton do ?

@pa4wdh: just read your post, some stuff bout ms was kinda to laugh, lol billysoft.
my first days with a computer was also in ms-dos, on a 468DLC, it had a cd-rom drive :woot:

It's all part of learning, why did you not try the Live CD!, would have saved you the cd's (not that it's a big deal since they are cheap)

I know people who wouldn't have a clue about installing a graphics driver in Windows.

I was still experimenting with distros, so I decided to try out Ubuntu based on what you just said. WOW. This decision has to be one of the best I've ever made. They fit about as much information on one cd that I have on four Fedora cds. As soon as I started this up my sound worked. I couldn't get it to work in any other distro. I didn't even have to do any configuring. In short, I love you.
