Hey AG, I respect your decision of not wanting to use Linux anymore as it is fairly dificult, and yes.. some stuff require the "command line". Still... imho the command line is more powerful than graphical mode, and there are lots of things you do faster on the command line than in the graphical mode.
Thing is .. I think each OS has it's own good and bad points and for me they are:
Windows's Good Points: Easy to use, Gaming, Support for most modern hardware.
Windows's Bad Points: Security, Stability, Commercial.
Linux's Good Points: Stability, Security, Open-Source, Free.
Linux's Bad Points: Not-so-easy to use, almost no gaming, and the support for the latest stuff is not so great.
I can live without Gaming on the PC, and I sure like to know and learn about things (specially when related to computers). I've learned more in these 2 weeks I've been running Linux solo than in the last 5 years of using Windows.
ExRoadie's saying that there seem to be 2 distinct versions of linux (the mainstream and the nerd's one) and I think so aswell. There are wonderful ready-to-use linux distros like Ubuntu, Kurumin (brazilian), etc... and then comes Debian, Gentoo and Slackware.
Each one better for its niche of people. I also think that Linux will only emerge when it's really easy to use, but strong efforts are being made in that way and Ubuntu is a clear show of that.
Regarding to king of nothing post.. nope.. I have never been able to show my fan speeds under lm-sensors altough they displayed the speed fine in the BIOS an inside Windows. And speaking of windows .. go check your pm's or the Toastie Siggies thread.
