    I miss Windoz


    When I was running the Gates crap, I was busy. I had 3/4 hours of email a day, about the latest virus/worm, the freeware program that would change my virtual world, the latest upgrade to my firewall or antivirus programs. Now, I check distrowatch, this and a couple of other forums, answer my kids
    or g-kids mails and twiddle my thumbs. I miss Windoz.

    Now THAT's a good idea
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Windows isn't that bad if you use some common sense. I've never had a virus on my system yet, on any OS.
    Spam has nothing to do with your OS....
    And you still need to upgrade the security software. After all, hackers are still a danger no matter what system you use. Well, malicious ones anyways .

    thats a very good idea and if you also like you could learn a language such as c++ or java. The other thing that helps me waste time is web development.
    find something that intrests you and follow through.
    hope this advice helps
    Windows is the problem, Linux is the solution!

    Setup a home network, use dyndns.org to point to it. That's what I did! It's fun, free, keeps you busy, keeps you learning and as an added bonus, you get on the web!
