    I happen to do a lot of volunteer work myself for that exact reason. More than most people. I like to help people. I go to old folks homes and Churches and do low-income seniors' taxes. I also tutor students free. I like to think I am trying to help people informing them about Linux and get shot for it every time. Saved me a lot of money and time making the switch. Some very rude remarks have been made. Maybe you didn't see them before they were edited. I did. There is no call for that, even if you disagree with me. I've been running Linux two months now doing everything I want. I think i

    How much do you get paid? Seems like a lot of work to do when you could just educate them and then they wouldn't get virus'. Or need all those programs running. They could surf like you n me and go wherever they wanted to. Click any link they wished. Actually use the internet. How many computers do you have set up? I mean you would have to test this on 95 to Vista wouldn't you? I have seen software recommended for only one or two versions of windows. How many differently configured computers? Are you given brand new computer set-ups to test this on? All different brands?(HP told me their com

    With KTorrent, you search for a file to download, could be through this link (http://www.torrentz.com/), although it doesn't have to be, browse to its' page, click download, everything gets set up automatically, including router. Starts downloading @ 800KB/s average speed (each) for a 4GB movie. From there you need to learn to fine tune it to get it to download faster. They have their own forum. I know it sounds complicated, but, you have to remember, this is Linux.

    I don't get this impression reading your other posts. Such as AVG not updating properly but you just tried it two hours ago with no problems.

    Maybe they had a crash. Saw a similar post on another forum. What is your OS? Since reading this a few days ago: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20060227/0211220.shtml I have been using KTorrent. Works great.

    Newsflash just in: Dateline April 1, 2007 - Our ace reporter Danny Crane tells us Sir William Gates, long known for his altruism and charity, but also known for recognizing ways to make money when he sees them, has decided that he is going to relieve himself of the dinosaur that is Windows and invest in a rising up-and-coming Linux distro called PCLinuxOS. The brainchild of a genius who goes simply by the name of Texstar, PCLinuxOS has come into its own with the release of PCLinuxOS 2007. Having been in development for about four years PCLinuxOS has far surpassed the best efforts of Windows in
  10. Maybe ask this guy http://www.onecomputerguy.com/install/vista_initial.htm Funny how everyone says how fast Vista starts, yet this guy says by default it waits 30 secs before loading OS. Either he doesn't know what he is talking about or everyone else figured this out very quickly. Maybe he isn't the guy to ask.lol
  11. I have the same router. To change settings, I type in an address. I fail to see what difference it makes which OS you are using. It works with Linux. Surely it will be easier to find support for Vista than Linux. No?

    Windows Vista

    Judging by your sig, I'd say you are more savvy than I. I downloaded and installed Google Earth by "clicking." Had a problem with it that I just cured by "clicking." (It worked, but wasn't super smooth, a little jerky) Turns out I had wrong driver installed for 3D apps. All I did was look at hardware configuration. Almost forgot, I had to log in as root to do that.
  13. Good question. Maybe try manufacturer for graphics drivers instead of using Vistas' or vice versa.
  14. I'd read the EULA before I used that upgrade disc. It specifically states "After you upgrade, you may no longer use the software you upgraded from." http://www.microsoft.com/about/legal/useterms/default.aspx

    Then it must be Fuji that is due to be released in less than two years from now. I thought Vista was secure? Why do you need anti-malware? If you like it to look at, check this out, it's free!

    Linux

    Just a question. When you buy hardware and software now, do you check to see if it is compatible with your OS and what requirements are? If yes, then could you please explain to me why this couldn't be done for Linux if one wanted to use it as their OS? If no, then I am sure you have made useless purchases at one time or another or got very lucky. Personally, I always check for requirements. Forgot to ask, how much hardware support is there for Vista.

    Read-write NTFS driver for Linux The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, freely available read/write NTFS driver, which provides safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 and Windows Vista filesystems. Almost the full POSIX filesystem functionality is supported, the major exceptions are changing the file ownerships and the access rights. The purpose of the project is to develop, continuously quality test and support a trustable, featureful and high performance solution for hardware platforms and operating systems whose users need to reliably in
  18. Sony does not come near my computer anymore. Nothing sony. Computer running, anti-virus, router hooked up and running as well as being configured properly, looking at desktop, no browser or program windows open. Popped in a DVD my sister lent me which she had purchased (Charlies Angels - Full Throttle). Was waiting for the pop-up box which asks you what you want to do with the disk. It never happened nor had a chance. Desktop changed. Looked like what you would see if you had created and logged on a new user account. Went to check files, there wasn't any. Logged off.

    Gidday You have to install the virus to get it with Linux. Downloading is not installing. With windows, you just need to click the link, insert CD or USB, presto, virus. If you research Linux, it is not worth it to try to write code for it, regardless of how many people adopt it. You still have to install the virus. I'm not sure what it is you want to do but, PCLinuxOS has everything already that most people want to do. If I want to rip-n-burn a DVD, software is already there(K3B), no searching anywhere(Other than package manager if an APP isn't already installed. Not in package manager,

    Straylit ME (Just quoting you) "But a well-configured and secure windows system can and will run just as fast and efficent as any Linux based system out there." Only using more RAM and you still couldn't dare to click just any link. Remember that some people have computers where they are not the sole user. Like me. My girlfriend and I both got tired of me telling her where she couldn't go or what she couldn't do. If I were the sole user, I can honestly say that I would be happy with windows(XP). Except I don't like being forced to spend all the money required for new hardware and soft

    http://www.theregister.com/2007/02/20/vist...urity_oversold/ I would install Linux first with the GRUB boot loader, not LILO. Then install vista. GRUB will detect and add windows to the boot options. Resized my NTFS no problem and converted others to EXT3. I would say there are a lot more fan boys for microsoft. Mostly because more people stand to make money off of the side issues related to windows. While we're comparing it to cars, with microsoft, you only have a license to some of the internet highways, I travel all the roads with Linux. Including dirt roads and trails. I fear no p

    Well, I guess everyone runs security programs for something to do then. m$ = Upgrade all hardware and software to run with vista keeping in mind vienna is due out in less than two years so everyone can do it again. Well moderator, I guess I am a nerd, even though I know nothing about computers.
