Probably not funny but amusing to me.

Ok I will admit it. I am sorry

Some of the way I went around the experiment were a little strange (i.e. I should of set up a dummy blog somewhere and did it there as not too alienate my regular readers(or they were just playing  the game better than me but none the less)

In truth I am actually dual booting windows XP(im waiting for SP1 of vista) and Ubuntu feisty fawn and I am very happy with both of them, heck if it were not for a few apps and VS, I would more than likely switch to feisty completely.

Some of the best software is written for Linux i.e. the Beowulf project, litehttpd, Bash, Mono, 5-in-a-row (I have become addicted to that game for the last 48 hours), Apache, etc

So there you have it, I’m bi-curious (with Operating systems of course :D)

Ill leave the aforementioned post open for a bit, but the experiment should be considered over.

Oh and for my regular readers, normal posting will recommence tomorrow.

Update: This post was one that I wrote as part of an ill devised experiment that I later retracted. For more information please check out this post

So the other day, I decided to install the current version of ubuntu linux.

And I am astounded…

at how crap it is

heres a list of complants from me

  1. WTF is with the installer, it removed my entire collection of music, even though I had told it just to use 5gbs of space
  2. The windowing system, why does it need two components to run a GUI, especially a GUI with horrible UX, I would rather use windows 95 than the latest “distro”
  3. it doesnt let me run any windows apps, this is a major letdown as the apps bundled with ubuntu are just horrible
  4. it doesnt come bundled with a webserver or a database server
  5. GRUB doesnt let me boot into windows, this was the last straw , I reformatted my machine and promptly re imaged my machine back to Vista

People that say that linux is good should be taken out back and shot

So, I am about to post post, I do not agree with what I am going to say in it, and I will delete it in a week, but I think it will be an interesting experiment to see how many comments I get.

Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express
