I still don’t understand why anyone uses Linux as a desktop operating system. I built a new computer recently and decided to give Linux another whirl, after last using it 5 years ago. SuSE 9.1 Personal installed without a problem, and I was on the net within minutes after the installation was complete.
But overall, performace is much worse than Windows 98, and every time I went to use the media player, the entire machine would lock up. So much for Linux’s rock solid stability. I’d much rather use this seven year old copy of Win98; boot time is less than 20 second and I can play all sorts of media.
