Linux/Windows flame wars
« on: November 22, 2010, 09:10:41 PM »
I had some trepidation about starting a topic like this, knowing you guys, but, its amusing in a way to see how little fighting over computers has changed.

I had posted a joking comment on a YouTube video which was comparing the more worthless eye candy features of Ubuntu and Windows7, suggesting that the title should reflect that fact, since for a more practical user of both like me, it wasn't a very useful video, at least as far as a real comparison would have been.

Needless to say, the attacks on me by the Windows fanboys is very nasty (big surprise). For all its shortcomings, I have to say that Ubuntu has given me MUCH less aggravation than Windows. I totally missed the whole Amiga/Atari flame war, but, this little episode reminds me of what folks have talked about, describing that time. 8-)

Windows and Ubuntu... what are those? Are missionaries teaching some African tribe how to place Windows in their huts or something? :lol:

There are Windows fanboys. They are people who don't care about computers and expect computers to act in a certain way.

For example my girlfriend Dannelle choosing not to use the available Apple Imacs at the university library and instead choosing a Dell pc with Windows xp. She did this because she wanted to use a 'normal' computer.
These are the Windows fanboys/girls.

That's not being a fanboy, that's using what you're familiar with because it's the quickest way to get something done.

I can't imagine being that dependent on a single OS.  They're all so similar nowadays that that if you can use one, you can use them all.  Double-clicking the firefox icon does the same thing on all of them. ;)

LOL. I guess what i was trying to say was that the definition for a fanboy of Windows would be different for everything else such as Apple, Linux, Amiga etc. Windows is a generic product whereas the others are not.

I think it's possible to be a fanboy of Windows but the definition of it would different from the others. At least that's how i see it.

Right, the definition of a Windows fanboy doesn't include being a pretentious asshole, or clinging to 25 year old hardware for dear life while leaking denial all over the place.
I am a negative, rude, prick.

I made Linux look a bit like a Mac, it was cool.

Well after being called an asshole, at least you've tempered that with a statement I can whole heartedly agree with.
Use of the term 'Windoze' or 'lenucks' is definately grounds for summary execution.

im pretty platform agnostic.

though macs are overpriced and annoying, and Linux takes simple things and makes them hard on purpose I think.


If I didn't need a few things Linux lacks a nice alternative to, I'd be on Linux most likely.

and if it ran FF14...
