10 things I hate about Linux...continued

Before reading the 10 things I Hate about Linux, check out the 10 things I Love about Linux.

  1. Too many versions. People complain about Windows Vista with 8 versions but I can't even count on one hand how many different distributions of Linux are available today.
  2. I do not want to use the command prompt.
  3. User interface doesn't compare to Windows.
  4. I want to be able to use my computer, not spend days trying to figure out how to use it.
  5. OpenOffice does not hold a candle to Microsoft Office. I would like to see a robust Microsoft Office for the Linux platform.
  6. Linux is not as user friendly as Windows.
  7. It is not ready for the average user.
  8. Lack of hardware support.
  9. Everything you can do with Windows and a Mac, you cannot do with Linux. Examples included multimedia and drivers (especially wireless).
  10. Lack of hardware manufacturer support.
  11. Installations can be tricky. They are not out of the box load and go. There is always some sort of configuration involved.
  12. Games are plentiful and cooler on Windows.
  13. Linux's snobbish and self-satisfied, join my club and become clever like us, attitude.
