> preload nothing but the OS

Which leads to the question what is the OS.

The point being many current andropid distributions make the os something other than default (and what is default anyway).

So people complain that they cant remove essential parts of an os on something they got. Maybe research it better, tools.

I do not like multi player games much.

However. I love mmorpgs.

SWG was great. the best even. I could even have lived with the changes but the chanegs enrofec multi player. No more could you ger buffed and go out and play on your own.

For me the thing about mmorpgs is not the multiplayer its just the having real people around that is cool.

Yes I do like the occasional team up. But I hate for it to be fopreced.

Am mostyly playing swtor right now. However the foreced need mroe than 1 player parts are annoying. I wish i could turn them off so i do not see them.

I also think to much is put into multiplayerism bits.

But eh, such is.

> The thing is, Linux engineers would have no problem learning Windows stuff, while the opposite is more seldom

Totally not true. When you are talking about engineers.

The thing is a lot of windows people are not engineers they just know enough and do not want to know more. An engineer wants to know more. Unfortunately computing is not the only industry to be sullying to term engineer these days. (I look at boiler engineers that know nothing about boilers and just do what their big pop up boiler fixing book says, etc and so on).

This is simply not true.

Most companies do not go into the negative just to stay on the safe side, they just stick to the facts.

However "X worked here beetween Y and Z and was dismissed for gross misconduct" does not give any specifics and is often used.

I would however argue that it is still negative.

Nonsense they were there if you wanted them.

Magazines had huge section on tiops/walkthroughs back in the day. Nowadays they know it is pointless as you have already found one on the internet if you wanted one. Also diskmags had them as well. No need for internet/bbs if you were scared to do it!
