Bringing Linux into a MS marriage (Dear Abbey: )

By Shellbot ·
My husband made a very shocking statement over the weekend.

He has said he is going to install Linux on his laptop. He is planning to do it on a virtual machine, so in his eyes, its ok..

He says its for learning purposes, as most of the stuff at his new job runs on Linux... but how long before its not just "learning" anymore?? How long before he starts using it just for fun..??

I am a MS purist...I just cannot believe Linux will be taking up resisedence in my house..

How am I susposed to handle this??
What am I going to do??

Nothing says true love

Like dual booting for your significant other. Or you two could get drunk and install both along side OSx on a macbook. But that kind of 3-way supporting lifestyle isn't for everyone...

But the user that came along with the mac was really gorgeous. :)

OSx is actually quite pleasant once you find anything you're looking for and you break your right click dependancy. The upkeep for the user was too much to bear and I can't say I was sorry to see her or the mac go.

An OS for people looking for simplification

by jdclyde In reply to I said that once...

Simple people love a simple OS. OSx takes away all the complexity of having TWO buttons to have to click. Decisions decisions..... ;\

Just one button on the mouse but now for your right click, you have to hold the Apple button with the left click.

There are context menus in Mac world. I have a two button
external mouse for when I don't want to deal with the touch
pad on my Mac Book. Or I can tap the touch pad with two
fingers and get the context menu that way.

I like playing from the command line. UNIX is a joy to use.

**** before I will go back to using Windows again. I bought
a Mac because I wanted the stability of OS X.

I've tried to make myself go back to Windows. Couldn't do it.
Can't make myself. Sorry. No.
