i WAS a windows maniac. i mean, if you grew up in a world surrounded by the army of mr gates, it's pretty difficult to make a jump to another OS.
until a couple of months ago when i decided to give linux a try. at least i could always use dual booting, that's what i thought.
then suddenly, my windows crashed. i had to reinstall it but i found that the cd was badly scratched-thanks to my cat.
so i made a big jump to linux. after trying and searching the right distros, i found fedora 2. which just got me hooked up so fast. even when i try mandrake, the so called "user friendly linux distro" i still found fedora the best.
then a couple of weeks ago my sister bought a new windows cd. so i decided to install windows again. why?? because i miss running programs with ease and not much of a hassle like linux.
well, probably i still do miss that simplicity that windows offers eventhough i hate buying those softwares again.
but when i tried to install windows, something weird happened. after the partitioning and setup folder copying, my comp just wouldn't boot. it keeps saying "error loading OS" which just pissed me off.
i was sitting in front of my comp for 3 days and almost 3 nights. my head was spinning and my eyes are just sore. that was when i decided that i'll just stick to linux forever. but then, after i reinstalled linux, i just couldn't keep my eyes off the windows cd. so i tried it again.
this time, i forgot to format the primary HD which i already have linux on and tried to install windows on my secondary HD. of course it wouldn't work. i kept getting a message that it needed a partition in the primary HD.
i was so tired that i unconsciusly deleted the swaap partition for windows installation and it WORKED!!!
geez, i mean i'd tried clean installation and everything i could think of but this little accident just sorted all up. after 3 days and 3 nights without sleeping now i'm ready again.
i just need to install firewall, antivirus, office, etc etc etc.
i just realized what a pain in the ass windows is. i mean with linux it's all there, everything is sorted out when you install it. the office firewall and etc.
should i go back to linux completely or should i just stick with dual OS.
well the first thing is to get some sleep.
