    Since I haven't posted one since I built the new computer, I figured it was about time. Feel free to post your own :)

    Note the awesome system temp monitor in the corner (which I just got working totally today) :big grin:

    I always have a Linux box setup, but I never have anything to do on it. :dunno: I just do whatever I need on my laptop (XP). I want to do more though.

    What could I do in Linux I couldn't do in Windows in terms of hacking?

    Same with me.

    That is why I always end up on windows on my desktop. :sad2:

    I understand all of that, but I'm not sure how that changes hacking abilities. Besides, if I were to hack I'd use a tool like Putty instead of my system command line. :dunno:

    Again, I understand all of that. And again, nothing you've mentioned would make hacking in Linux easier than Windows. I'm seriously not trying to be an asshole, I'm just curious to see if anyone can give me an example. Lastly, hacking doesn't exactly mean writing code. You can exploit software in other ways AFAIK.

    I agree with Chris, it is fascinating seeing how an operating system works from the ground up. Infact, using linux has taught me alot about computer hardware by showing stuff that windows hides.

    But on a daily basis, when I just want to surf OT, check my email, and maybe play a 3D game, I don't need to know about that stuff.

    I have heard the arguments about stability, and I will agree that linux is very stable. But so is my desktop machine running Windows XP Pro. It hardly ever crashes. And when something does go wrong, I think it does a great job of recovering without taking down my whole operating system.

    As for speed, I think windows wins in that category. When I use Linux on the desktop it seems like Xwindows is this massive, slow thing that just bogs down. It seems as though every little task just takes a second longer in linux.

    I know linux has the power and speed. I see this all the time as I run linux on my server. I just don't think linux is doing it for me on the desktop.

    Am I making sense to anyone? :hs:

    As you know, I do everything on my Linux box. I just can't stand using Windows, it just crashes too much and I find it to be very inconvenient to use, not to mention the cost (of the OS and software). I don't have any non-free software on here, started using OpenOffice since StarOffice was fucking up on the new computer :bigthumb:
