I've been an M$ hater for many years now, with just cause, and will never change. They had their chance. I liked win3 - 3.11, then came win95
Ever program on a Win95 system? After spending an hour typing code, you go to save your work, only to see the system lock up and crash .. and you lose a pile of good starter code. I quickly learned to save after every line of code. Purely asinine ..
Win98 was the same thing .. but coming with new promises of improvements ..
Finally came win2k and some improvement but a whole new learning curve to install and configure properly. I reinstalled that over and over for a month until I has a system that stopped crashing
Microsoft Win-xx is the only OS that ever made me want to throw my computer out the window and go back to pencil and paper
Then I found Red Hat 9 .. Holy shit batman! This is everything win2k was suppose to be but it installed in an hour, came with all the applications I need and 'just worked' right out of the box .. perfectly!
Today I dual boot Debian Wheezy and PCBSD 10. I can emulate most of my classic rpg games on Wheezy, and use Freebsd for finance and accounting due it's security. I have one laptop that came with Vista that I use on occasion for software that is purely M$ locked in. Today M$ is dead to me and I see their fanbois as clueless 12 year olds that just don't know any better.
