I feel dirty
« on: October 05, 2015, 08:32:21 pm »
I was on a computer all day at work, but it had Windows on it and I was using Internet Explorer.  I think I need a shower after that.   :-X

I'm just glad it's not my computer and I was able to come home to Peppermint.   ;D

It's funny, the first computer I was supposed to be on froze during startup.  All I did was roll my eyes.  That's Windows for you.  Yet, the vast majority of businesses still use it. ::)

I ditched it completely back in June.  Too many BSODs.  Now, when I use it, it seems so weird, even though I used it for many years.

I run windows 14 to 16 hours a day, everyday without fail, and I would say something about this thread, but I was told by admin that I am not allowed to anymore...   >:(

Ah but you know what you're doing and how to wisely maintain it.  For the average user, Windows gets used and abused.  When it does go wrong, it does it in spades.  It keeps you repair guys busy though  ;)

As you've now decided to make this PUBLIC, I'll respond....

After the hundred and ninety seventh time it lost its humour .. it had got to the point where pretty much your total interaction with the forum had become posting "Windows the best OS ever made" in random topics then leaving .. as a "trusted user" I ASKED you to tone it down in as friendly a manner as I could, anyone else I'd have considered it trolling and banned them without recourse.

I guess you are right, I have never had a problem so far since i bought this machine 6 years ago... However as you said I do run proper security programs, and stay away from sites that most people would click on in a second...   That and I never used explorer, so I can understand how the op felt about having to use that...   :)

Sorry but that just shows a poor IT set-up, naff all to do with windows.   We have windows where I work and I can sit at any of the 60 or so desks in the office or go to one of 15 other offices we have - sign in as me and all the programs I need are there and working.  I know most of you guys hate windows but it gets boring after a while, this continual petty knocking of the MS OS.   Don't like it stay away from it.  Have to work on it...  sh!t appens get over it already.  I don't come here every day moaning about this or that Linux Distro that doesn't work.   I don't even post about a lot of the frustrations I have with Peppermint.   I simply use it cos I enjoy computing...  wotever the flavour and what ever the problems I come across I search and or ask for a solution. I love coming to the Forums and reading about problem solving and learning new things but I get really hacked off when you guys simply moan about windows just because it s windows.   

Apologies... Rant over - I normally just gloss over these posts as uninteresting but his time - sorry I just had to reply.

It could equally be said that THIS IS A LINUX FORUM, most people ended up here precisely because they're tired of Windows shortcomings so what do you expect ?

"Don't like it, stay away from it" ;)

and I must add that your experience of Windows is completely different to mine, people here don't moan about Windows "just because it's Windows" otherwise they'd lay into anything not Linux such as BSD/OS X/Unix/AmigaOS/etc., they moan about Windows from experience .. rant just getting started ;)

My point exactly - I expect to see Linux items not windows bashing...   but hey, I don't want to fall out with anyone as I do genuinely like this forum and the people on it. You get smart intelligent answers to your Linux problems  :)

I will take my own advise and revert to ignoring posts about windows  :P
