I had a hard drive crash last year. Had Win 10 on it. The external drive that I saved backups to also had a bootable copy of Ubuntu Studio on it, but a little older. So I took that out and used it as a boot/working drive for a couple/few months and determined that I STILL think Linux sucks. It was an older version (12.?) and I didn't want to corrupt anything/lose data on other partitions by installing a newer version. I'm used to using Photoshop but GIMP or the other editing sw included just wasn't cutting it. And double-clicking on SOME folders to open was farking killing me! PLUS, I couldn't get my sound card (SoundBlaster) to work and video drivers were ganky. IF you have the time to "play" around, I suppose Linux is OK. I've played with it since the ol' Red Hat days but never grew at all fond of it. Maybe if someone had showed me "in person" the tricks and tips to managing it I could have been convinced.Since I have retired there is absolutely no reason for me to support Microsoft windows.
Yup, I've been with DOS and Windows since the early years. For reasons unknown, Microsuck felt the need to constantly update their sysop sw, sometimes with real duds like Me, Vista or 8.1...I have run or attempted to run five different flavors or distributions of Linux.
Since I had supported DOS and Windows and OS2, it usually wasn’t that big deal.
But back then I had some cutting edge hardware that it just could not support.
I’m running much newer gear now but it’s too old for “new” windows. I
Two is one and one is nearly none.. . . But do I NEED a Linux laptop or desktop? Not really... The biggest problem is if the computer is not 1000Gb network or Wireless N.
Wasn’t “ infinite Pi” the slogan at Shari’s when they first opened? Lol
The last time that I went for jury duty they had that movie on a big screen in the waiting room. It’s a rather confusing movie if you come in in the middle of it, and all the people that hadn’t seen it before couldn’t make any sense of what was going on.It's not quite morning, yet.
I read the life of pi, finished it two weeks ago. Then a book of fishing stories by Heminway. Now I am reading catch-22 which is like the unemployment/out of work scenario above.
We were mid 60s today, and again tomorrow. Lows in the high teens or low 20s over the weekend, WTF. Lol.
Ya'll have a great evening.
