    I think we've reached the end of this discussion. Obviously Phil and Coldon are clueless when it comes to modern *nix systems.

    It almost seems like they are trying to argue that black is white. I'm waiting next to the nearest zebra crossing, just to see what will happen (aka Douglas Adams...)

    I call troll anyway. Phil, Colon; come back when you've got a clue about what you are talking about and maybe then you'll be listened to.

    :rolleyes: Trying to argue with the Bit-Tech Linux guru is definitely like p***ing into the wind... :rolleyes:

    Fixed that for you. But then so can windows,

    I worked for an oil company a few years back they were deploying sharepoint when it was a new product long story short a few problems arose. I reported the bug and was sent a bill for over £100, for the bug report not the fix the report. It was an oil firm so they didn't care but lets be clear real support is not free with any os.

    What can I say? I speak as I find. What d'you think, I'm making this stuff up for the fun of it? I assure you I'm not.

    What's most irritating is that many of these things are quite easily solved, at least technically speaking - just requires opensource coders to pull together, which is historically, well... difficult? Could I say "rare"?

    Actually, open source coding is becoming better, I've seen language bugs fixed in minutes.

    But you have to remember, open source coders have real jobs too, we have to earn a crust and since Open Source is generally donation based we can't earn it from that.

    The thing is they have spent hundreds already on windows help, with virus scanners and sending to the shop (I am now in a different Island) With Linux it doesn't go wrong, they use it for word, music internet and e-mail. Nothing can really go wrong as they don't touch anything. Since installing Linux I havn't needed to fix any problems at all.

    Your experience seems to be... none existing, however, if you want to I can give you logons on dozens of Linux systems (5-6distro's), and I DARE you to find a system wide config outside /etc and a user config outside of $HOME...

    And now you prove to be an ignorant git, with 0 *nix knowledge... Actually this part makes me go report your post as trolling...

    EDIT: Which I did now

    And if that isn't the docs you are looking for, RTFM!
    Making false statements on things you obviously don't have a clue about is ;) Arguing isn't at all. I like a good argument, but I hate talking to a wall...

    You can call them "false statements" as much as you like; I have seen all of this happen with my own eyes. As I say, I can't bend reality around your worldview. These things happen.

    And as far as reporting it goes, be my guest, I consider that I've been the very picture of reasonableness given your holier-than-thou attitude.

    Well, since you didn't even bother to reply to any of my arguments in a decent matter, arguing hasn't got a point. Repeating the same, wrong, statements time after time makes me actually sad that I invested time even bothering to reply to your ignorance. So climb up on you Ivory tower once again, and feel welcome on my ignore list.

    I'm not really sure what arguments you expect me to address. I've stated things I've seen happen, you've said "you're making it up." Whaddayawant?
