Re: re: "learn" windows?
Don't get me wrong or anything, I am indeed in favour of free open source software such as Linux, but I have to admit that it's a bit of a pain to get going.
Mostly with getting drivers installed, it's a particular pain if your wireless card doesn't work "out of the box" and you have to go searching the Internet trying to find a driver, but then you find out that the only driver for it only supports WEP encryption (as was the case with me).
I'm certainly no Linux guru; I imagine there is a way around it somehow.
Thinking about it, it's more of a fault with the hardware manufacturer for not supporting Linux, when they should be.
Again, I’m in favour of open source software, and I like how most Linux distros will work well older computers whereas some versions of Windows won't, but I do generally find Linux to be a bit of a pain to use at times.
Yeah, I’m kind of rambling, so I’ll shut up.
