Easy ... the new problem in linux
Linux is not easy to ue as someone pointed out, becuse its so complex and powerful.
I'm not sure howto put this, but the effort to make Linux easier to use, easier for newbies, make Linux look more like wind0ws is actually bringing up new problems.
One good example is my n00b experience while configuring a network with my Mandrake distro. The GUI is so simple to use, that I donno what changes were made, or not made, were activated or not activated. Some changes require u to restart X, some this some that blah blah blah. In the end I just reboot the pc.
Linux used to be good for these things, reconfigure whatever you need without rebooting. This is really frustrating. I have lots more encounters with these "GUI that look good and easy to use" problem that I can list here. Now I'm just sticking to console like my good old MSDOS days.
Wizards are to aid users, not to hide and simplify everything to nothing like M$ ppl are doing. Some users might be stattisfy when the stuffs that they want to do are working, but some still want to know what's happening in the background and have some control over it.
The point is, stick back to linux roots. Learn Linux the correct way, or you'll learn nothing at all .... Try asking the new linux desktop newbies to use consol for a day, I'm sure they'll switch back to windows.
Being lazy and being a complete idiot is not the same thing, so make sure the ease of use are targetted at lazy people, not idiots who know nothing about computer, but want to use Linux just because everyone says its better than wind0ws.
I'm not sure if I made my point here, hope you guys can see it, ;p
M$ & The Art of War
War ? They'll be more hackers, both white and black hats in the Lin community then the Win commnity .... even an average Linux user can be conidered an expert in computers to a Win guy,
If there are any serious plans to end M$ domination, all we need to do is h@ck , eXploits those M$ Mut$##$#$#@ers
Btw, I have both Linux and M$ box at home, Wind0ws is only good for 1 thing, games ....... Hopefully my PS2 will replace it soon
