I been playing with the different distro's again.
And I checked to be sure the iso was good.
Here is what I found this week.
PCLinuxOS enlightenment bombs when changing settings. It says to
notify enlightenment. Right.
Also, the browser chrome did not update my bookmarks when i signed in
I like PCLinuxOS, but I always have issues with it.
Fedora did not work well with my graphics card, and I don't want a
distro I have to tweek just get it working.
Linux Mint actually did very well, had no issues on my hardware, even
let me install the broadcom proprietary drivers and graphic drivers.
As far as linux vs windows. Mint is a lot faster then windows XP,
even without the virus checker running.
But people are scared to death of anything but windows. So I run Mint
and when they lot into their account,
you can have it automatically load Chrome. Most are happy and just
use the browser. If they need to enter something,
I have them use google docs. they never back up their stuff, and most
have no idea of all the features of OpenOffice

I wanted to try something different, so I went to Windows. First I tried
Windows 3.1, but it didn't work on the Internet as the driver for the
network card didn't come with the disk, and it looked kind of ugly
anyhow. Besides, it didn't come with drivers for any of my hardware and
I couldn't watch movies with it or listen to my music.
Then I tried Windows 98. I've got to admit it worked a little better
than Windows 3.1, but still didn't come with any drivers for the onboard
network port, sound card, graphics card -- so it was kind of a bust. I
did, kind of, like solitaire, but the 16 colors was kind of ugly.
Then I tried XP. Voila', it got on the Internet! -- apparently there was
a driver for the network port. And it found the driver for the graphics
card -- though I never did find the right sound card. It didn't come
with any software to play songs or watch movies... so that was kind of a
bummer but, oh well, it almost worked... until I clicked on a message in
the Sprint User's Forum and I got a "ransomware" infection. I pretty
much couldn't use it after that.
Then I tried Vista. Oops! The graphics card and RAM didn't meet minimum
requirements -- no go. Ditto for Windows 7. So I had to go back to
Linux. Everything is working fine now. Sure wish Microsoft could get
their act together and make an OS that works on *my* computer without
making me try to think to install it. It hurts my head something awful.
