Oh yes PLEASE, force me to use a slower & more resource-hogging OS on my brand new laptop! Make me buy another memory stick so it can run comparably to the OLD laptop! I MUST have the pretty graphics, darn it!Havok wrote:Microsoft countered that Dell's move was in response to a "small minority of customers" with a "specific request."

Yeah Linux. I've just started again with linux (this time its Ubuntu) after having some experience since Suse 6 or 7 (and a lot of AIX inbetween) now with Ubuntu feisty fawn they made a lot of steps forward. I am running a server with ubuntu and samba and after the installation configuration it just runs nothing more and nothing less just runs.hennef wrote:i always configured my towers myself - and i usually wait with the new MS-OS till it's first one million bugs get sorted out. This time i will go for Linux or Mac-OS. i am pretty much done with windows. after SP2 on XP i was already getting really annoyed with all the registry and keying and stuff. for some games i will still need some windows, but it will of course be a stolen one, because they tend to be LESS stupid and bitchy - a fact that is quite hilarious: if you purchase your Vista legally, you will have loads of registering and legalization-stuff to do. if you have a cracked version, you just install and run. one big point against massive copy protection! But, notebooks are a little difficult on that though. especially when it comes to drivers and special built-in-functions. i will though find one with good linux-compatibility or go for a mac-book. both OS are just better, in nearly every way.
