Re: Help me understand WIndows

Ironically, that's one of the frequent complaints about Linux, wireless issues. The UX31E has been OK for me in Fedora--though pretty poor in Ubuntu. A friend asked me to put Ubuntu on his Portege? One of the newer ultra notebooks, but had to go back to WIndows because of wireless--on the other hand, Windows keeps crashing on him.

The things I hear from folks who try and give up on Linux, say around work--are usually either wireless, some printers--they usually work but will have limited features, and, as a few folks have said, just not wanting to learn something new.

While I understand the frustration, and aggravation of folks who use M$ and Win-blows, I think it's an insult that's outlived its time. Especially in any form of communication when you want to convince someone to change, using such terms is insulting what they're using now, with an implied insult towards said person--and insulting a person goes a LONG way towards closing their mind against your point of view.

But, that's just me, and if it gives you some satisfaction, go for it. However, I would strongly suggest not using it anywhere on your resume.
