>Linux will never be widely used
But it is you ignorant baboon, millions of servers, embedded devices, routers, phones, monitors, desktops, TVs, satellites, set top boxes, car computers and god knows what devices run Linux. And you say it will never be widely used, take a look around, probably even your refrigerator runs some minimal version of Linux
after two thirds of a decade browsing this shit board the most damning thing is that not only does the behavior fail to evolve or even change at all as time goes by, but neither does the content.
Heh. The "clueless" girl was the only one who pronounced Ubuntu correctly.
Sounds like she just bought the cheapest Dell she could find without realizing there's anything other than Windows and Macs. Can't blame her, really. She's no nerd.
I fucking love this guy.
"what a huge hassle"
literally in tears. This was my exact experience with linux for the first few months of using it, but now it just brings joy to my heart to hear other people struggling with leeenux.
I fucking loved this color scheme and look and feel.
Same for KDE3 Kubuntu, KDE3 OpenSUSE, Arch's special KDE flavor - forgot its name.
yeah, years ago even a babby distri made by kids looked good.
Now all of them are dull, flat, boring. Ala Win8/Win10/OSX.
This may be the wrong place to inquire about this, but where can I get a copy of the Internet on CD? I believe I may have just figured out a way to get like free porn, and stuff.
>cd needed to install the internet
What the fuck is this?
Can someone please explain?
I installed the internet in my parents' house back in 2004 when I was 12 and I didn't need a CD.
because americans are dumb and would rather drop out of college and blame a laptop than take personal responsibility
even back in ubuntu 7 days, WINE could run most garbage software, openoffice was good enough for homework.
how do I know? I fucking made it through college on a free IBM thinkpad running ubuntu 7.10
fuck this girl.
>because americans are dumb and would rather drop out of college and blame a laptop than take personal responsibility
That probably explains why Linux is used by <2% of PC users despite it being FREE and available everywhere.
Plus there are thousands of willing helpers to get a noob through the tough bit at the start.... NOT!
The big turn-off for Linux is the percieved elitism and arrogance involved. According to the aspies who use it if you can't figure out the problems you don't deserve Linux.
Well, we the people agree. We'll leave it to you guys. Enjoy.
Nigga I had my moderately computer literate mother running off a knoppix CD for 2 months when her hard drive died 10 years ago. For what she needed to do (edit Office docs, use webmail, browse the net), it worked fine. I just put shortcuts to the office programs and browser on the desktop. She maybe called me once for help.
