I know of more games that are for Microsoft than there is for Apple Inc. and Linux. How come the other two never really entered the video game market?

I’m currently using Microsoft’s Windows XP. How can I change it to Linux Operating System? X

My friend is kind of a nerd and I am not but I do agree with her that microsoft products tend to be somewhat suckish. (No, I’m not into Mac.) Do you have to be brilliant or rich to use Linux? What can it do? I don’t think I would know how to survive without Windows.

Linux is in violation of nearly 300 patents owned by Microsoft but the distributors and users of Linux haven’t paid a single cent in royalties to Microsoft. In fact, a lot of distributors of Linux offer their OS for free so the users are just as bad as software pirates who are causing Microsoft to lose money and have to charge more for people who legally buy Microsoft Windows instead of people who use Linux or a bootlegged copy of Windows. Why is it legal for Linux to do this?
Here’s a source to an older article. I can’t remember the link from PC World that indicates that Linux is in violation of at least 253 patents owned by Microsoft.

I’m sick of microsoft, but don’t know Linux very well. Here’s my plan: I want to put Linux and windows on both computers. I want to network the two with Linux (I’ll only be using windows for offline work). Will windows interfere with me using Linux as my preferred OS? Any other problems I might face? Is Ubuntu easy to network with?

Its so easy to get pirated Windows that you don’t bother buying it. But one should think about whether we should do it or not. I mean it feels good when you are doing the things in a way that you think is right. If I think about it, it seems that the people who did so much hard work in making the Microsoft Windows are getting less paid because of us. What do you think: ‘What is so wrong about using the pirated stuff?’ Moreover, when there is a free alternative available(Linux) why don’t we use it and feel good about not using the pirated one.

Open Source Codes Pros and Cons?

Open-source programming embraces a philosophy that states programmers should make their code available to everyone rather than keeping it proprietary. The Linux operating system has had much success as an open-source code.
What are other advantages of open-source code (Linux or MACs "Snow Leppard")?

Why do you think that companies such as Microsoft maintain proprietary restrictions on their code?

Open Source code and Microsoft?

Open-source programming embraces a philosophy that states programmers should make their code available to everyone rather than keeping it proprietary. The Linux operating system has had much success as an open source code. The chapter mentions some of the advantages of open source code, such as quicker code updates in response to technological advances and changes.

based on this paragraph i had to answer some questions for my assignment but i didnt get 2 questions they were:

Why do you think that companies such as Microsoft maintain proprietary restrictions on their code?

and

Are there disadvantages to maintaining proprietary code?

can someone explain this to me?

I am teaching at a school with a Microsoft Windows based network. I am considering ordering 15 Cherrypal Africa netbooks with linux operating system and 160GB hard drive for my students to use in the classroom. I need to know if I order these computers, can they access the network drives to save files on the school network and can they connect to networked printers for the students to print their assignments? Any help in this matter would be greately appreciated. Thanks

1. Which is the best version of Linux & why? (links appreciated)?

2. I only have one PC so I would want to try it installed to a separate partition, alongside windows XP using multiple boot options – I assume this would work?

3. The main reason I want to dump microsoft (& kick bill gates in the nads) is that every time I get a faster processor or more memory, billy gates’s bloatware slows it right back down again (most things seemed to happen faster when I was using a 386SX). IN GENERAL [app dependent], would linux be an improvement in this area?

4. When I remove windows completely, will I still be able to communicate with MSN messenger buddies?

5. How would you describe the learning curve for someone who’s used to windows?

6. In your opinion, Is Linux likely to increase it’s share of the domestic market, and therefore pursuade more software developers to port their products to Linux?
ADDENDUM: I’d also like to know how system stability compares to windows, ditto for overall security – I think my current AV (AVG) is available for Linux but I haven’t checked to be sure.

Developing linux applications?

So i switched to linux after trying it in the past and getting fed up with microsoft. I know c++ and C#. How do i develop applications and GUI’s using thos elanguages. What do i need? Links will get you easy 10 points, thanks

I’m not meaning this as if they are bad, they are both great. It’s just that whenever I use them I get an odd feeling in my stomach. My mother told me that sometimes colors and designs make some people feel a little woozy.

I only get this feeling when I’m looking at extremely high detailed and clean looking interfaces. Now with Microsoft Windows XP I can look at it and not feel woozy since I can look closely at the task bar and see the grain of the granite. But with Ubuntu and Vista, I cannot. Why is this?

And no I’m not prone to seizures.

if linux doesnt let you use microsoft office are there any other softwares other than windows and mac which let you run microsoft office.

Howdy

I have found a laptop for £200 that gives more than some other laptops i’ve been interested in which cost £80 more and I think this is because the £200 laptop has linux for its o/s.

I’ve never used linux. How easy would be it be to write reports (I’m a student and going to sea in march, gotta right reports at sea too >.>) and have them compatible with microsoft word.

What about the music on my pc that i would wish to transfer, mp3′s and media player tunes?

Or should I pay a bit extra for an o/s i’m familiar with.

Oh the laptop is this one:

Acer Aspire One A150-Aw
The extension won’t be .doc with linux, is the extension compatabile or easily changeable, so the document can be opened on word?
The issue is compatability with microsoft o/s that the college uses. I’ll happily write a report on the given word processor but i can’t be having to download programs at the college (not allowed) so I can open up my report to edit/print off without character/font changes or issues like that.

He is going to install Lenux on my computer..sooon…….but i got so uded to microsoft!

What would happen if I recommended that someone use Linux or Mac over Microsoft Windows? What would happen if I opined that Microsoft didn’t provide good software solutions?

what is the difference between installing linux and installling microsoft windows xp

How long will Microsoft monopoly last?

I am interested in picking up Linux skill, but will it be worth it because still 95% of desktop OS is Microsoft Windows. Not sure about the servers, but I would have to say at least about 50%??
Will Linux beat Microsoft? How long will it take? Maybe not in our life time?
