    Windows Vista

    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 it is a viable option for those of us who can't afford new computers and OSs(I am not rich, will probably be late with rent this month). I still haven't used a command line. Although some of you on windows will have done so. Start>Run...ring a bell? It's been a slice. Take care Andavari and have fun with Linux.

    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 computers don't like Nero) Sign me up! I'll even quit recommending Linux to people. Would be bad for business.

    I guess you didn't notice he used a mouse as well.

    Limewire

    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.

    Now this is cool.

    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.

    Sorry, I had to add a little humor to this thread.

    Linux

    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 its many-year history. It is rumored that Sir William is also engaged in talks with Warren Buffet to see if he wants in on the ground floor of what is almost certain to be the most successful computer operating system yet. We will have more for you as the story develops.
  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

    Router and Vista

    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?

    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.

    squished web pages

    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!
