Upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 on an old dell GX240 or similar desktop. No issues, went smooth, its fast, light, and I have it looking the same as 9.04

Upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 on the MSI wind U100, a couple of hours later I'm back in 9.04, flickering brightness on the screen and network issues was all it took for me to change back.

Lemmee think about this for a minute:

Ubuntu 9.10 turns out to be a big flop and seems to be half-baked. I didn't pay anything for it, so the only thing I'm out is my time, and I can rest assured in the knowledge that if there is something critical that I HAVE to have, I can download the source code and fix it. Otherwise, I can simply wait until someone else gets around to fixing it.

Either way, it's my choice.

Windows Vista turns out to be a big flop and seems to be half-baked. I shelled somewhere north of $70, and possibly as much as $300 (depending on what deals I was able to swing when purchasing it), and I lost the time to install it. Now I have to wait for Microsoft to get around to fixing it when they bloody well feel like it, and they may NOT fix the thing that annoys me the most. And for the privilege of getting the new OS, with the fixed stuff, and maybe a couple extra features thrown in, I have to pay still MORE money (although, if I gripe and moan enough, I might be able to get an upgrade to my existing Vista licences for $15 or so).

Either way, NOT my choice.

So going with Windows is a good thing, why?

Because it supports American jobs.

And Chrisbard has always been a long time supporter of the American workforce.

Yeah, but can you buy advertising space on a Linux desk top like you can on a windows 7 desktop!? Well can you!!??

(See front page...)

OK so you can download a Linux desto and you CAN"T download Win 7 anymore SO THE FREAKING WHAT!??
