I don't give a fuck, I hate Bill Gates anyway.


Why?  Do you know him personally?  Did he do something foul to your mother?  Did he eat your little brother with fava beans and a nice chianti?  What did he do to you to use such a damning word as 'hate'?

Probably because he's filthy rich.

I'm free to hate whatever and whoever I want for no reason. I'm no vgchartz. I hate you.



Wow, really? Windows is in danger because of Linux? Haven't we been hearing that since the late 90s when Redhat had their small boom? I have been using Ubuntu since Breezy Badger. I am an Ubuntu enthusiast, if not a Linux enthusiast, but even I realize that Linux will never surpass Windows or even Mac OSX. Do you want to know why? The development community is too splintered. Diversity and options is one of the greatest strengths of GNU/Linux OS. You can pick whatever flavor suits you. However, in terms of commercial viability, it is still too daunting for the average consumer. Consumers get confused about picking from three versions of Windows 7. There is no way they can handle the hundreds of available distros. Also, for an OS that supports a well crafted GUI (and honestly, Compiz is the superior windows manager. DWM and Quartz are outclassed), the use of GNU/Linux requires farly extensive knowledge of various command line inputs (sudo commands). Until the number of distros are reigned in and the intuitiveness of the interface is improved,GNU/Linux will remain a hobbyists OS.



The way computers should be and always should be, a hobbyist thing. judging from this site alone you can tell the age of people that for example think the PS1 is the oldest console made. The old days were much better when people had to go out of their way to learn machine code. People just want things given to them on a plate thank God for my comminuty that prefers to program for themselves and not dictate what we want without the knowledge of wtf they are talking about which is about 99% of VGchartz and that includes the f**king owners

If computers were only for hobbyists, nothing productive would ever get done. Honestly, commercial incentive is the driving force behind computer usage, be it consumer or industrial. People use to buy Altairs and do nothing impressive other than take on the sheer joy of programming it to do a math problem. It wasn't until Jobs and Woz decided to make computers for the everyday person and not the geek (or nerd, if you prefer), that computer technology really took off.

Its good to see M$ finally going down the garbage where they belong. I just recently bought stock for SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment) and i am happy to say that i am confident of my purchase of stock.

Google >Bing

PS3 >360

Android/Xpehira >Windows phone

MAC >PC

Sony/Apple > M$

GTFO My forums.



Computers should NEVER have been brought to society as a whole! Under 16's should not have access to PC's or laptops away from school under supervision. Over 16's should not go anywhere near a Pc without knowledge of them and god forbid they give their child a PC without knowledge of how to use it themsleves. I could argue that Jobs/ Gates etc. had no morals originially and were just hell bent on the market with plain disregard for the family or the workplace. I'm afraid it is showing now with the delapidated factories closing down, whole towns empty that were once thriving. It is all over the US. This as people will be happy to point out is down to bad managing of the bankers but if they computer wasn't pushed into peoples faces without regard for consequences this would not have happened.

You're right. We should go back to trying to light fires with two stones, TECHNOLOGY IS TEH BANE OF OUR EXISTENCE!@!!@!@!

Unless you haven't realized, if there were no computers you wouldn't be here, posting on this thread, so by using the computer to post this you have efficiently proved that you are in fact a hypocrite.

why should i pay 1000's for office products when i can use open office that actually does things quickly and with less bloat? the only pro i can think of is the after support (which also to be honest isn't fantastic and never has been) OpenOffice is making massive inroads simply because it is free with a huge support forum. In these difficult times free is much better than paying through the nose


um only because it is free, not especially coz it is free. If they cost the same I don't think anyone would buy OpenOffice.org its pretty bad, but hey it is free so you are right in that aspect I suppose.
