By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
In ten words or less, complete the following sentence: "I don't use Linux because..."

I'll start with "...I'm required to use Windows for work."

I suppose that might be possible, but...

by daveo2000 In reply to I Don't use Linux Because

I recently upgraded my computers and I remember spending a bit of time (not terribly significant, but not negligable) setting up my HP2510 network printer on XP. I didn't bother setting it up at first on RedHat (FC4) because I had thought the same as you seem to that it would be a bother.

Anyway, since I won't use Outlook (Virus Express) to read mail and, instead, use Ximian Evolution (no windows scripting problems there!) I used to bite the bullet and save mail to the hard drive and print from Windows if I wanted a hard copy. I finally got bored with that and one day just clicked on the printer config icon. Basically:
1) it asked me the IP of the printer;
2) asked me if it found the right one (told me the name it had found); and ,
3) asked me if I wanted it as the default.

Done.

interesting

by apotheon In reply to It's Unnecessary and

That sounds suspiciously like some of the reasons I don't use Windows.

Of course, Linux does offer a heckuva lot of stuff I want/need that Windows doesn't.
