The Twisting Path To Linux

| He called Microsoft.
| Go ahead...groan, it's ok. I did too.
| Bill was summarily told to call Acer...it was their problem. Since 
| there was nothing "wrong" with the operating system, the ball was 
| in Acer's court, not theirs. He called and searched until he found 
| the right number for their support...the support that deals with 
| new and warrantied computers.
| Guess what he was told...told a few times actually because the 
| tech agent had an accent that Bill found hard to understand...?
| Take the computer to a local repair shop and let them deal with 
| it.
| Pain threshold reached.

| SuperOS along with Linux Mint are the two standards for our HeliOS 
| Solutions and HeliOS Project installs. No muss, no 
| fuss...everything works out of the box...no futzing around with 
| enabling Multiuniverse repositories...the average computer user 
| wouldn't know where to look.
| Hence, our choices of distros.
| Bill was at home with the Gnome Desktop within minutes. He didn't 
| care for the color theme so Dave showed him how to change it, 
| modify it to his liking and get new themes to play with.



Vista to Ubuntu (100%)

| I had enough with eating crap with Vista. My last line of patience warned off 
| when I happened to wait about 5 seconds when changing from one MS Doc file to 
| another and also happened that I was running with time to finish a project 
| report. No, Iâm not running on 256 ram, itâs 1 GB and this kind of a time 
| wastage is totally unacceptable. You may ask why I put up with Vista in the 
| first place. Thatâs thanks to HPâs decision to embrace Vista so my laptop was 
| pre-built with Vista and no chance to downgrade because there are no drivers. 
| So where to go now ? Easyâ.Gutsy.       
| [...]
| But my worries were groundless as Wine now supports Macromedia 8 series like 
| a babe. Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash all works perfectly with Wine - 
| installation to Execution. Another great thing with Gutsy is that my Broadcom 
| network card support is inbuilt and with some additional applications I can 
| search networks and connect to them like a charm. Also Iâm using AWN manager 
| to manage desktop (here is a great article on desktop styling - thanks to 
| Lakshan) and now it looks like a hybrid between Leopard and Vista. So what 
| else I can ask for ?       

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
