Linux Sucks...

Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry.... I've been trying to avoid harsh language in my Blog, but this time, Linux Screwed up my System to such an extent that I just can't stop.... Well, if you've been reading this blog, you know of my stint with Linux(SuSE and Fedora) and my bad Impression against SuSE.... But, something happened today which will make sure that I never reccomend Linux to any Sane Person whom I meet... Well, it all started really simple : I was in IM with Aswin, and we were talking about putting up Mambo in our SourceForge WebSpace for Easy. The Conversation shifted to the tools we used to upload them. I said that I used WinSCP to copy them, while Aswin said he used OpenSSH in Linux to get them up.... Well, I said I'd be blogging about why Linux won't excite the Normal User if it doesn't do something serious, soon. He asked me to go on... But then, I decided, since he had reccommended Ubuntu Linux to me, I wanted to try it out before posting my views on it..... Well, the Ubuntu Linux had the Worst Setup I've ever seen. It took me almost 30-40 mins to get it up, and in the end, it just gave me a command line Interface! Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Stupid.... And, then, after it, I just thought of starting up my Windows XP to get rid of Ubuntu, when to my Horror I found that Ubuntu has Screwed up with my Windows Installation! ^#@#$@#$^@#&@#@#^@#^!@ it! Well, atleast I dual booted into Windows 98, and thankfully found that all my Data is safe..... Well, I'm writing this from Knoppix Now, and I'm never ever ever ever ever going to install any Type of Linux in my System, or encourage anyone to install it to their System.... Well, Dad still doesn't know of this, but when he does come to know of this, I'm sure he's goaana blast me.... Well, hope to get a WinXP CD from Somewhere and Reinstall my System. Hope I could get it right.... Linux Sucks.... Linux Sucks.... Linux Sucks.... Well, atleast, I'm not going to write about the Original Post I was going to write till I could get my Windows XP System back up and running... Thanks, and Keep the comments coming....

Well, to start with, i wont agree that linux sucks. Its GUI is superb and offers almost all features that windows does.

Second, its a matter of personal choice. The more you work in windows, the more you like it...the same applies to linux also. Ofcourse, it takes a lot of pain to configure USB tools etc. but those things are changing and linux is getting a lot better.

You should try & attend linux community meets. They are as full as the microsoft events. And 1 more thing...you wouldn't have explored enough to call it sucks !

Well, Aswin that's true : The More I work with Windows, the More I Like it...

But, consider this : I first started working with Windoes some 5 Years back, I had absolutely No Problems with it... Infact, it was simple enough for a dumb 9 year old to learn it himself...

And, yes, it's a lot of pain to do some/many things, and until that changes, I'm not goaana change to Linux... Would you take to something that has all the features you want and is painless or one that has almost all the features you want, but still painful sometimes ?

And, yep, I've not yet explored enough to call it sucks. But, I've atleast tried to Explore, but have always been set back.

But then, if you had read any bit of Sherlock Holmes, then it would've been very much clear that I gave that title because Linux Screwed up my System, more than anything else...:P

Well, it's a matter of Personal Taste as well : I like Windows, you like Linux; I like VB.NET, you like C#; I like Bugsbunny, you like Daffy Duck:P; I like Bread, you Like something else:D

as far as i know GNU/Linux rocks and ubuntu has been used in many server based applications in industries and as a desktop in homes. U should understand onething u should never say Linux sucks because it screwed ur system. It screwed ur system may be because u didnot install it correctly . Most of the geeks feel that it is windows that sucks.i too feel the same way.GNU/Linux is the best operating system.

If you say that linux sucks then, you dont describe about yourself as "I am a Geek and love programming and developing". Silly guy you use some M$ stuff and you speak about Linux??? You suck to the core man...
And watch your words.. you are not old enough (coz you showed you are a kid) to recommend Linux to people...

yep:D I'm really not old enough to reccomend it to them, except, for example, Knoppix to do some emergency System Rescue. Well, And, I used Linux, so am writing about it. And, maybe,I'd be getting a Post about this thing sooner than later...

You uh...forgot to tell ubuntu to install a GUI you know the pretty thing that makes windows go vroom! And besides...it would take about 5 more minutes to get an interface and not a command line...

sudo apt-get install gnome

or something like that. And ubuntu messing up your windows installation? You either messed up the partition editing or didnt setup grub right. Linux is do it yourself to the max, you have to know or at least READ the manual before jumping in. Ubuntu has a live boot cd, its what got me turned onto linux.

Sorry yuvi, I don't know wat went wrong with your linux installation.

The first time I installed linux ( Read My first Linux Experience) in my system, I had my uncle with me (actually he was the one who installed it).

But I tried it second time on my own and everything went perfectly fine. Till now i hav done about 3 linux installations at home itself and many other times at my friends house. I didn't get any problem with it.

I have also tried BSD But the first time I installed it I did some mistakes so it got messed up. But the second time, I installed it successfully. Though BSD is a very good os it doesn't have an intuitive GUI for installation as Linux and solaris(going to try it very soon) requires high main memory for GUI based installation.

Only that it requires a bit of patience and eagerness to try it. Thats it. Try it once again and you will surely appreciate GNU/Linux. Being a computer geek at this young age, you should try different things before jumping to conclusions.

No hard feelings if I have offended you in anyway.
