Comment Re:Will automated cars lift or stiffle the poor (Score 1) 239

If people want to share a car, why don't they do it now? Oh yeah because you're screwed if someone else gets in an accident with a vehicle you have owned and insured. Unless insurance and liability laws change, sharing a vehicle will be as stupid then as it is now.

There's also the problem of cleaning up the various fluids from the drunks who used the car before you.

I must not be operating around the right people. If dual booting is too hard to click a couple buttons during install, and highlighting the desired boot in grub, then exactly how are people going to fix their webcam or soundcard when a W10 update fucks their computer?

You need to be really really smart to install and use Linux, better to stick with W10, then what? I guess you just buy a new computer because everything is too damn hard....

As too often happens, it's not always as easy as it sounds. The last time I tried to install Ubuntu, it went fine, until i dual-booted back into Windows. That borked my MBR so I couldn't get into Ubuntu. Yes, I could fix it, but the next time I booted into Doze, it happened again. This was just booting, not installing/upgrading.

But you do have a point. W10's borked updates are killing the "just works" advantage Win had over Linux.

Kindasorta. A modern Linux distro is pretty darned easy to install and use. Boot from CD with an internet connection, and a couple clicks later, you are cookin'.

That makes several assumptions:

1. The computer still has a CD drive
2. All the hardware and peripherals work with Linux (often true with modern distros, but not always)
3. The user can give the finger to their Doze software (dual-booting is harder than just having one OS)
