Subject: Re: LINUX - Another choice? ( 4 of 7 )
Posted by JDM

I have a dual booting system (Linux, and MacOS), and although Linux is okay for the tinkering, geek creed, and brag rights it lacks the basic intuition I have come to love in MacOS. User friendly is NOT a applicable term. This sums it up nicely:

Linux Air:
Disgruntled employees of all the other OS airlines decide to start their own airline. They build the planes, ticket counters, and pave the runways themselves. They charge a small fee to cover the cost of printing the ticket, but you can also download and print the ticket yourself. When you board the plane, you are given a seat, four bolts, a wrench and a copy of the seat-HOWTO.html. Once settled, the fully adjustable seat is very comfortable, the plan leaves and arrives on time without a single problem, the in-flight meal is wonderful. You try to tell customers of the other airlines about the great trip, but all they can say is, "You had to do what with the seat?"
