That is SO why I decided to just buy a mac. I don't have what it takes to be a linux user. I just want the darned thing to work.
Macs have drivers too you know Compared to a PC, they're just a different type of hardware
Oh, I'm aware of that. I just don't have to write my own, which suits me just fine! What sold me on the mac wasn't the hardware so much as the OS. It'* got the ease of use of Windows, with the stability of Linux. Did I mention that I despise Microsoft? I despise Microsoft.
My thought recently has been that if all Linux systems had the MAC UI then Microsoft would have something to worry about. I'm real impressed with the MAC OS interface and even more pleased that it runs on top of FreeBSD

I tried Suse 10 the other day, and just like any other distro I tried out I got stuck on something and gave up. Thats been the story with me and Linux for the past several years. Besides if I cant run Windows games in Linux then I dont have much use for it. Its nice and everything but they really need to make a distro out there that reaches out to WIndows users if they ever want to have big pennetration into desktops. I have a hard enough time helping my co-workers manage around Windows.

Old thread!!
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...465&highlight=



as for programs running on linux. linux is slowing taking over more and more programs are now avalible for linux. it won't be over night but i can see linux becoming more mainstream. btw in case anyone is wondering what im running im running ubuntu 5.10 (derivant of debian) Its preety much idiot proof and a good start for anyone looking to give linux a test run



http://www.ubuntu.com/

they also provide install cd'* free of charge
