I think you guys have finally converted me completly from windows.
Ive been fighting the microsoft flu since dos 6.0. I have literally tried for years to get everything that I need working on a linux box, and have always had one problem or another, one piece of software, or a driver. (Usually beacuse I tend to buy cool hardware before I find out it works in linux, **** you x-fi)
Im finally here. I wish I could shake all of your guys hands.
Lol ive literally been trying to to get away from windows since SuSe Linux 8.2 Professional (I bought a boxed version… ive still got the books and cds to prove it too lol.)
Thank you guys for everything!!!
welcome to freedom…
eat your cake and then go to work…only a few billion still locked
in M$ shackles…
Enjoy the freedom.
If you want to do what I did, you could email Microsoft and tell them they lost a customer.
I did that back in the days of XP SP1. I was displeased with them for several reasons, but having a distro on Linux that works, just cinched it. So I sent them an email saying I’d never buy another Microsoft product again.
I have those to, and the stickers to Geeko-ify the box. 8.2 was a good solid release.
I might just email them and let them know. I dont know if id say never though… I don’t like their operating systems… but I do miss some of their apps… in particular onenote… which as a unrelated questions… anyone know of any good alternatives?
I don’t have the stickers anymore… I was 19 I think when I bought it so I didn’t exactly keep the best track of things. The fact that I have both books, and that I’m not missing any of the optical is surprise enough.
I want some suse stickers now, lol thx for reminding me.
As an update though, Ive found that everything, webpages seem to load faster, openoffice… well i no longer have to wait a week to open. Ive never been this happy with an OS before.
