Woman Buys Dell With Ubuntu Then Blames Them That it doesn't have windows

Thursday, Jan 15, 2009
I saw this online somewhere and just wanted to say that I am really surprised we don’t see it happen more often now that Dell sells Ubuntu computers. The woman in the article ordered a dell laptop with Ubuntu installed for the operating system and when she got it she couldn’t use it because she needed windows to set up her Verizon internet. I could probably find a way around that and she probably could have too but didn’t.

No OS War

Monday, Feb 25, 2008
I see it it so many places and I just don’t understand why people have to try to make wars and that sort of thing out of which operating system to use. They all have their pluses and minuses and really in the end isn’t having multiple reasonable choices the best outcome? It’s great to have different options for different people who work differently. I just believe they all have their place.

Switching To Linux

Tuesday, Mar 6, 2007
I’ve always wanted to switch to Linux but in the past it just hasn’t worked for me. I’d installed Linux twice before but it just didn’t stick for me. Last time I had installed it my hard drive started giving smart errors and then started loosing windows files randomly. We sent that drive back to get it replaced but in the mean time we bought a smaller cheaper drive to put in my computer until the 180 gig one came back.
