Yeeeehaaaaw! After installing openSUSE 11.2 to get rid of my suddenly dysfunctional 11.1, my Audigy 2 doesn’t produce a single sound anymore - neither via the regular nor the digital output. It used to work like a charm on 11.1.
Good work, suse team!
I cannot say how much I have come to hate Linux during the past 12 months after constant problems with system instabilities due to incompatible software component updates and stuff like my system still not working after ominously going out of service and “repairing” it with openSUSE’s repair function.
I decided to get into Linux because I found it cool when I started with a couple of years abo and thought it would be well worth getting into an OS that might become the successor of Windows. I also wanted an OS I felt secure with when doing online banking or shopping.
Well, I have to say that Windows 7 delivers on all the promises Linux has made (at least those that are important for me), and that Linux hasn’t advanced a micrometer in the time I have started using it.
The only thing in favor of Linux was that it worked well enough on my 6 year old hardware. I’d rather purchase some new hardware and Windows 7 on top of than tormenting myself more with this unspeakable PITA Linux has proven to me to be.
To hell with it.
Stay in your server corner, but stop telling people Linux was anywhere close to being a useful desktop operating system.
PS: Yes, I have tried other distros too.
