If your failure of an OS can't even pass HALF of what Windows can? admit its a failure and STFU. I'm standing here, throwing down the gauntlet and saying your shit OS can't even provide HALF of what fricking Windows Vista can...who is gonna prove me wrong? As for saying I'll change the rules? I can't, they are posted and so simple..well a FOSSie can understand them.
Pick ANY mainstream consumer Linux, PCLOS, Ubuntu, Mint, the only requirement is that it had to exist 5 years ago otherwise it can't simulate a 5 year cycle can it? As for mainstream, distrowatch has a list of the top whatever mainstream distros, listed under "user friendly"...take your choice, pick your poison, they all suck. Then make sure you have working drivers INCLUDING a wireless that can use WPA V2 and then update to current...that's it. NO printer support, NO mobile devices, simply show the world your OS is capable of the most limited of functionality, what frankly should be the baseline for even calling yourself an OS, the ability to apply security updates without shitting yourself...and YOU CAN NOT DO IT because the linux driver model is THAT shitty, it really truly is.
So PROVE ME WRONG, make me eat my words. the challenge is free, takes less than 4 hours, and no requirements on the hardware other than the most basic, sound, video, and wireless...that's it, that's all.
