Re: Tragic News
You are kidding right? Let's break it down:
The inbuilt products:
Antivirus - Experience of dealing with people who rely on it usually have me cleaning their machine more! I usually point them to external programs.
CD Burning - Have more failures or unreadable discs. Better off with an external burning program. This isn't a disc problem by the way! Our users generally use this, or our external clients, and we have a high rate of unreadable discs!
Zip - Absolute rubbish program. We get a lot of Zip files from authors on Macs. While the temporary folder can be seen Windows mostly fails to see the actual files. We rely on 7Zip to do the work because it opens the files perfectly.
I use Linux for private stuff and some work stuff. Have no problems and no inconvenience. Everything works perfectly. In fact, when I have stuff on Windows that doesn't work I find Linux usually does the job without problem.
