Interesting how Microsoft stirs up comments. Hmmmm.
I’m a constant computer users. I had Vista on one machine (laptop, came on it) with no problems. Upgraded to 7 and found it significantly faster. Loads faster, runs faster.
I have installed 7 on two new desktops and they work very well. Since Vista attracted so much negative press, there must have been problems. I find it hard to argue that 7 has any problems past the fact that some software and some drivers will not work in 7. In fact, I have one hardware item that states on the box that it “works with 7” when in fact it doesn’t and the mfg can’t (or won’t) tell me when a 7 driver will be available. Small price for a fast, stable operating system.
Finally, if Bill Gates ever comes to our town, I have promised to go punch his lights out for all the hours and hours I have spent over the years trying to make SOME of his software do what it should do. It’s a relief to finally get some that does work.
I long been curious about the mostly positive views of Linux here on FR.
Given that many of the people behind free software such Richard Stallman are leftists and/or atheists, how do you personally reconcile their politics with the operating system itself?
I’m aware that people like Larry Wall (a Christian) and Eric Raymond (a supporter of gun rights) are exceptions to the broad brush of liberalism pervasive in Linux and free software.
