RETAKE THE LINUX BOARD!

Recommended Posts

pwd    122
Something has gone terribly wrong here tonight. Godfree^ has gone mad tonight, and the madness has twisted his board. He has invoked ancient names of power and practiced dark magics in the lounge, and the lounge has consumed this board. Are there enough people that actually care? So far I''ve merely seen two interested parties in rescuing the board from nessy, CmmdrM and myself. This board could be something, perhaps a more active moderator could drum up some more activity... But... If nobody cares, perhaps it is best to put this board out of its misery before things get worse. So which is it? Give us liberty, or give us death!

I'd readily volunteer to be moderator, except I don't know much about linux so it wouldn't be that good...
Of course, if who ever get moderator doesn't know anything about linux anyway, sign me up!

//edit
let me refraise that, i don't know much about linux programming. I can install and use linux with the greatest of ease (okay, some old distros aren't that easy to install.. but I can still get it working) so I do know stuff bout linux, just not that programming side.

Ok. Sorry about the misunderstanding Rhino. You may be a tech person but that does not mean you cannot use windows. It just means you could use linux. You could handle the challenge.

If you are not a tech type (aka geek) then linux is not for you. You will not find your experience plesant. That is all I am trying to say.

Linux is like, perfect for programmers. At lest that is my opinion. Did not mean to offend any one.

Oh and me for moderator, because rhino hates me.

Heh my post that couldnt get posted because of the thread being closed was RE that.

IMO WinNT is perfect for programmers, IYO (in your oppinion) Linux is.

Im not writing linux drivers for a non-standard piece of hardware (my DVB recevier for IP over DVB) that will be obsolete in a bit over a month (ISP is closing its broadband service). I have absolutely no information on how the card works neither. It wouldnt be as easy as it was in the movie ''Independance Day'' where they interfaced a MAC with an alien computer and uploaded a virus (that worked!) first go.

Im not a linux freak, I use the OS that does what I want it to do, as should everyone else. If Linux does all that you want it to do, then by all means use it, but for me, it doesnt do what I want it to do so I use what does. Saying that people with different oppinions to your own arent tech peoples or arent smart etc is plain stupid.

LOL. I''ve heard the same said for Be. It boils down to what you''re comfortable with. Some people will like the range of options of Vi, others will like the simplicity of notepad.

I hope that''s not the only reason. I don''t want to see nessy running this board ever again

(hmm. Guess I should finally stop resisting nes8bit after this is all over)

Hey some one with some sense. He did not just burst out and flame me. All right. Hey man use what ever works for you, but if you get the chance try linux (its free, just make sure you do your reasearch first). And I did not mean non linux users were not tech users. I just meant that tech users are pontential linux users, where as computer newbies really are not (linux is not very user friendly at first).

What is the deal. Why when I write Microsoft (that is supposed to say the big N as in n i n t e n d o thats n-i-n-t-e-n-d-o) does it say Microsoft in my post. You evil moderators are crafty (this is quite funny really). Why me. {-_-}

I was talking to nes8bit at the time, and needed someone to replace Nurgle. I thought it''d be funny if he were made the moderator until I could find a permanent choice. If you don''t think this has been funny, then my apologies, but it''s been restricted to this one thread (and Tim assures me it''ll stay that way). Besides, what better motivation to find a new moderator quickly?

Actually, I do find it kinda funny, so long as it doesn''t stay this way for too long. Once again, I have NOTHING against Nessy, but having him as moderator of this forum for too long has the potential to drive away people with legitimate questions. But, hey, we all enjoy a good joke now and then

Down with nes. He is evil. He hath cursed me to write Microsoft when I intend to write nin-ten-do and to forever chat with Hitler and AOL. Brothers (and sisters) country men. Fellow linux useres, leand me your ears (and your money and all your other stuff) join me in my quest to rid us of this evil moderator. He is the most evil moderator since rhino. DOWN WITH NES.

I''m a lot more neutral towards it now that I understand what''s going on. I kind of flipped out when I first saw nes8bit as the moderator (of the Linux forum, no less) and a thread full of him editing other people''s posts.

Im glad it came across as it was intended, to not be flame

Ive tried linux before, I used to use it when I was on ADSL as it was simple to get it connected to the net. At the time I still used Windows more than linux because I preferred it more (as I still do), but I liked to explore linux. Seeing as my current ISP is closing its broadband services next month, I will most likely be going back to ADSL, and therefore have a bit of incentive to do up a linux install again.

What I really hate tho is the lack of proper NTFS support, as all my files are on NTFS partitions, and I dislike the idea of having a FAT32 partition to share files between the OS''s

There is NTFS support under linux. And support for any other file system you want to read.



Tho writing on the other hand, everything I have seen on it says that it is likely to screw up your NTFS partition. And is it the version of NTFS that WinXP uses? Or an older version (Win2k, NT4)?
