Thats funny i had a zx spectrum 48k it never booted because it had no hard drive it came on and you could use basic in 2 seconds yes but games took 5 to 10 minutes to load>? :-o


I can't believe it... Next message you'll tell me, "oh, and I forgot, the sinclair had low resolution and such stupid sound"... I was trying to make a point about the low-end hardware in the 21th century. I need an OS that takes advantage of my hardware TODAY, not to start xwindows and transform my P4 into a 386...

But still, about my sinclair, those were fun times, you can't disagree...  :-D

hehe mpdox... i guess its a long time since you used linux.. It has come a long way for the last couple of years... For example... UT2003 runs actually better on linux here, than on win2k...

It still could be more userfriendly though..

Last time I remember it was 1999... I was fighing with ipfwadm and squid back then. Man, that squid crashed a lot...
By the way what is used as a proxy now usually? And for firewall rules?

;-) So do I.  But if Microsoft have their way with it, it will be more like the HAL 9000 computer is 2001, a Space Odyssey:

More like:

"Open the door, Bill"

"You'll have to pay for it"

"But I don't have enough money"

"Fine - I'll take your house and everything you own off our servers.  All your life are belong to us..."

SCO = Santa Cruise (sp?  Name of a town in CA) Operation.  AT&T's old unix which, IIRC, was spun off into SCO.  Either way, they are dead.  They have now kick the shins of Big Blue, even M$ knows better not to do that.  

Dammy, waiting for the Nazguls, err, IBM lawyers to counter sue.

I think linux must die!!! The sooner the better for all of us...

It must not die. The world needs competition.  Linux is important for X86 world i.e. one of the main *nix variant for X86 platform.

IF Linux can get MS product’s cost down then it’s a win for consumers. I don’t think X86 Linux will die since they anchor the cheap X86 based servers.

I don’t think IBM needs SCO i.e. IBM does have AIX.

Microsoft and their non working spying OS must die.

Windows way wouldn't die due to Linux's WINE/WineX.

Linux worked from day one

Not with Red Hat 7.2 and nVidia GPUs.

on Windows is still crashing even XP.

Applications can still crash; even in memory protected eco-systems. But it shouldn’t take down the OS.

With Windows XP, system drivers run at kernel level(recalling). IF there’s a problem with the drivers Window’s memory protection ecosystem may not able to save the session.

LINUX is a copy of UNIX and what is Windows?

Windows NT/2K/XP/2003's kernel is similar to DEC’s VMS**. **OS that runs on Alpha AXP.

Ah, ok. Thanks. I maintain an embedded webserver running Linux and our own software, which we sell to customers. So I guess I'll be sued! :-)

Linux is free if your time is valueless.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

Finally, I see some actions against this plague of computers...

I really hope you are joking....


Unfortunatelly, no...
There was never an innovation brought in from linux world regarding computers (software or hardware). The linux fanatics only know to bash microsoft and make noise... That's all they do, all day long.
And of course, immediately I say something like this, you'll see here soon enough, all the posts here will be against microsoft (I have a lot of anger against microsoft myself, but that's different). Because that's all that this so-called operating system can produce. Innovate something? Make a software that is not a copy of something already in the market? No way. But noise? Oh, yeah, you'll see...


even though i use linux now - i would have to agree with you there - you do make a valid point

I hear that alot, but it doesn't make any sense.  If anything, I'm spending alot less time with Linux vs Windows.  Yet I'm doing so much more with Linux then I do with Windows (mostly playing Dark Ages of Camelot or using the web cam).  On a day to day basis, I've had alot less problems screwing around with problems then I had with my amiga and that damned Dataflyier SCSI controller.

But again I have to ask, my motives for being against linux is that there is no innovation from linux coming, and I love computers (loong way since I had my sinclair spectrum) so I want to see them advancing. How is linux helping me in this matter? I want to see a computer like in star trek during my lifetime, damn it...


Hmm...  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the computers in Star Trek were universal.  They didn't suffer from closed proprietary data formats that could only be opened by one particular vendor's products.  They were also robust, reliable, and secure.  

So, it makes perfect sense why you'd want to kill the only operating system that values security over senseless macro-enabled e-mail readers.  (???????)  And you ask "What has Linux done for you," when it's the only OS that is pushing for truely open and documented standards.  

The code itself may be derivative of the original proprietary UNIX, and some forward progress may be slow.  But I'd offer that its a calculated slow, in order to ensure that mistakes are minimized.  Personally, I'd rather wait a few years and get it RIGHT, rather than live in a world innundated with half-baked ideas implemented as fast as they could be typed.  (Just look at the nightmares Microsoft has introduced!  Do you really want to live in the best future that could be written by the 5pm deadline??)  

I think the philosophy behind Linux is the only way the world will possibly see the type of reliability and USEFUL functionality of the fictional Star Trek computers.

Besides... I offer YOU the question.... What has Microsoft done for you?
