    From now on, no more from me about Linux in this news group. This
    doesn't mean I will no longer use Linux, although I plan to change from
    Ubuntu to Mint ;-) I'm doing it because a lot of people really like
    Windows 7 and, unlike Vista, I tend to agree. Microsoft has finally
    produced a decent OS and I will try to help here as much as I can.

    Told you ubuntucrapsthebed sucks.
    Course, Mint is derived from ubuntu derived from Debian, so you are
    hardly taking a leap. Just a green ubuntu.

    There's nothing wrong with Vista.
    You just need to be smarter than the keyboard.

    MS has been producing fine OSes for years.
    After you use Win7 for awhile, you'll find something to whine about.

    Not until XP. 95 - Win 2000 sucked big time.

    You're the one whining about Linux which is off topic.

    Agreed on Win7, but too much DRM. And Apple's stuff is even worse with
    the DRM.

    I've been using Windows 7 since it's initial release and I like it in
    most respects, but I DO NOT like the graphics interface. Those vague,
    fuzzy colors and boundary lines on the screens are about the worst I
    can imagine. I really liked the old Windows Classic setup that was
    used through the end of Windows XP. I surely do wish there was some
    way to have that in Windows 7, but I guess it just ain't possible.

    Which is one of the reasons I have Mint on another computer ;-)

    Apple's way over priced and all you get is a 256MB video card.

    I wouldn't say that. Right click on the desktop and select Personalize. On
    the window that opens, choose the Windows Classic theme. Then you can
    select your background and pointers you want.

    Hope this helps.

    Keep it up, I may have to take you out of my killfile! ;-)

    I have to disagree with your OS ratings, I find I still believe Windows
    2000 to be the best MSFT OS and I prefer Vista to Windows 7.

    I was using Windows 2000 for awhile and I had named another computer on
    the same router with the same name as Windows 2000. Windows 2000
    couldn't figure out what the problem was and wouldn't boot. It also had
    a problem with faxes that failed after the first page in that it
    wouldn't keep any pages. I had just gotten XP so I nuked Win 2000 and
    named it the same as I did before and when I went to boot, XP came up
    with "there is another machine on the network that has the same name".
    Changed the name on the other computer and problem solved. When a fax
    fails with XP, it keeps whatever pages did come through so I can have an
    idea who the hell sent it and call them. Also, Windows 2000 doesn't come
    with MSCONFIG and you have to use XP's.

    You stupid pile of lying shit. What happened...where you finally able to
    afford a legit copy of Windows 7? Took you long enough huh? I guess
    $14,000 per week in spain isn't really $14,000 per week USD!

    So, what happened with UBooBoo?? Why the change to Mint? I thought you said
    UBooBoo was easy to use and rock solid? I've never tried Mint, but I use
    Redhat from time to time, just so I don't lose all my Linux tech skillz...
    When I used UBooBoo, I had nothing but problems...
    You are corrct that Windows 7 is one of the best OS's if not the best OS
    Microsoft has put out. XP, 2000 and now 7 in that order...
