update on issue

Well, given the fact that I'm pissed as hell and am moving in two days, I decided to abandon "operation fix computer for dad", un-swap the hard drives, and deal.

I'm not usually one to be an operating system hater. I believe that every OS has it's good and bad points. Every time I here someone talk about how Free BSD does absolutely everything or OS X is God's gift to the entire world, I think they sound like total idiots. No major OS is 100% better or worse than all the other ones.

But after what I've done today I'm declaring the next 24 hours, "Windows 98 Can Eat Shit And Die" day, because it really irked me. Now I'm re-setting it for the old computer, and it's taking forever because every time it updates a little bitty thing it has to restart. And do you have any idea how long it takes to restart windows on a 166MHz machine?

It's a well-known fact that I run Linux. I'm not going to deny the fact that I've hated Linux before, there have been times when I wanted to curse everyone who ever had anything to do with it. But when I think back, most of my frustrations with Linux have been about little things, like font displays. Windows just takes a whole damn computer down, one messed up driver screws the entire system and you're SOL. One program crashes and it takes ten minutes to kill the damn thing, it keeps "not responding" and shit like that. Windows needs xkill more than any OS I can think of!

Alright, that's my penguin comment for today.
