Comment: Re:Why Linux Isn't Winning (Score 2) 685 685

I've had to dig through the registry to adjust settings to get things to work 'properly' in recent version of windows (visual studio - network BIOS command limit has been reached). I don't see that as a far cry from copying and pasting a few command lines in linux to get something configured or working. Please know that I am not a stranger to a bash shell, I usually have a few screens running irc and stuff...

That said, I use both. I have a win7 and an ubuntu box on my desk. Sure, I dropped Unity about 10 seconds after my first login (Unity is really just terrible, I truly don't understand how anyone ever thought it was a good idea.) Mainly, I use win7 as my main workstation (read: gaming) and my linux box for a web/media server and irc client (i really like byobu) as well as an alternate workstation when windows is rebooting/updating or whatever and I don't want to interrupt or interfere with its current activity - which is not often.

If the code and the comments disagree, then both are probably wrong. -- Norm Schryer
