Ubuntu 10.04 to Include Beginner's Manual

    Ubuntu 10.04 to Include Beginner's Manual
    http://lifehacker.com/5441494/ubuntu-1004-to-include-beginners-manual

    Finally, someone decided to create something like a help file for
    newbies! If this continues to be expended, it might actually give me a
    reason to try Ubuntu for myself one day. Until I can recommend it to my
    friends and relatives for everyday use, because I have to fix their
    user-created problems, there's no reason to check it out.

    Before anyone flames this message, remember, this is an *alt* group,
    *not* a support group. ;-P

    Maybe your reading comprehension is a bit lacking. The group is
    alt.windows7.general. I don't remember seeing Ubuntu anywhere. This is for
    general questions and issues regarding Windows 7. I am not surprised that
    the trolls disregard that bit of information.

    Anyway, most here don't give a RATS ASS about that INFERIOR Ubuntu. If you
    want to use it go ahead but we don't need or want to hear about it.

    Maybe I should report when I take a shit.

    After you install Ubuntu, you will see a question mark to the left on
    the top panel. It's the help file. When you open Firefox for the first
    time, you will see links to support, forums and very extensive
    documentation so you don't need to wait to free yourself from Windows.

    Not a flame, but being an alt newsgroup does not warrant posting off
    topic totally unrelated messages.
    At least pit OT in the subject line where people who are not interested
    can skip it or filter it.

    This is an unmoderated forum. Anything goes. If you can't handle it, go
    cry on Frank's shoulder.

    I can handle it but crap about Ubuntu should be posted in the Ubuntu forums
    where those idiots can see her post about the beginners manual that nobody
    needs or wants.

    Yet you start threads about Ubuntu more than *anyone* else so you are
    not one to judge or play net cop.

    Wrong. I just respond to the idiot threads about that INFERIOR Ubuntu that
    is a piece of crap.
    Any questions?

    Not good enough. ;-P

    First and foremost, I really honestly *love* Vista, and I want to know
    more about what is different in Windows7. =D

    Next, the friends and family for whom I provide tech support do not know
    that Usenet exists, and they do not use an email client, either. Hotmail
    and Gmail are browser toolbar buttons. ;-)

    Also, my *only* interest in Ubuntu is limited to the few still using XP,
    because they can't afford to buy Vista or windows7. (Retired, etc.)

    Finally, I'm disabled and most of my tech support is by phone or through
    email/IM, instead of hands-on. *If* I ever recommend Ubuntu to any of
    them, it will have to be easy for them to learn without me sitting there
    next to them.

    I'd rather try to keep their XP machines running well until they can
    save up for a new $499 pc at Walmart. Hopefully, a Windows7 OEM.

    That is the only reason a lying POS linturd troll like you is here.
    You've been thrown out of or banned and barred from all moderated
    groups. Everyone knows you're nothing but a GD spamming, lying linturd
    troll. Hell, you've even been thrown out of linux groups!

    I would recommend you try it first before trying to get others to try it.

    A phone should be enough after they've received the CD in the mail and
    you've done it a few times.

    It sounds like the people you support would do better with a system that
    doesn't need the kind of updating and maintaining that XP/Vista/7 does
    but whatever turns you on. The only update they'll ever need for Ubuntu
    once you get it set up for them is to click on an orange icon near their
    clock, key in their password and watch. It can even be set to
    automatically update so they don't have to do anything but use their
    computer and not worry about malware, maintaining or updating.

    Yes, that's my plan, on my old system that I only use for testing
    software. Again, only *if* I choose to go that route.

    Better yet, I have all of their software and Windows set up to just
    automatically download and install updates at night, so all they do is
    reboot each morning. That takes care of system updates, anti-virus, etc.

    For the Vista users, I even told them which sidebar gadget to use for a
    big green restart button; no start menu action needed.

    If they're interested in a new program, I download/install it first on
    my test machine, *before* they do, and that has prevented many extras,
    like toolbars and malware, because I could tell them step-by-step what
    to click while installing, or tell them not to use it at all.

    So far, Windows7 looks much better than Ubuntu, even without a sidebar.

    You are annoying, and have not contributed much, if anything to the group.
    Whether a ng is alt., or unmoderated, you should respect the charter, and do
    as No Spam stated. Otherwise, it's off to the Bozo-bin for you.

    Bye, Bozo.

    He already lives in in the Bozo-bin. He also claims to get $14k a week from

    Normally, when a ng is created, so is a charter, to inform users of what the
    group is intended as. Probably less common these days, though I can't claim
    expertise in this area. IOW, if I'm mistaken about anything I've said, I'm
    listening.

    Can you post said charter or did you leave a copy in your other pants?

    And where can this fantasy charter that you refer to be found? Next to
    your Usenet Cop Badge?
