Trouble Mounting Windows paritition
Security is one thing. Making it impossible for ordinary user to do simple task is another. I'm somewhat knowledgeable, but I have spent the last three hours simply trying to give the users of the two account on my machine access to the windows partition, and I still haven't been successful. I just want to be able to play the music stored there.
If I weren't fervently opposed to microsoft, I would just give up on Linux, after this experience. There is no good reason to make this so difficult for a home computer, and I doubt there is even a good security reason in general for this. As it is, I find myself unable to recommend Linux to people even though I would love to. Can't we not go overboard with pointless security details?
