Thread: How many of you completely switched to Windows?

    How many of you completely switched to Windows?

    I want to erase Linux, but unfortunately, I'm still a command line user at heart. How many of you have completely switched to Windows?










    Tip: It's a joke thread, so have fun with it.

    The stability and lack of viruses made me homesick of Windows, so I fleeted back in a heartbeat once Windows 7 came out. Suddenly, all my familiar errors and maladies returned. Good bye, Linux.

    If you want to emulate the complexity of the Linux CLI in Windows, then I believe there's a Kinect plug-in available for Windows7 cmd.exe

    You use the Kinect controller to gesture at your command line such commands as 'regsvr32' (both hands in the air) 'cd \Windows\System32' (touch knee with forehead) and 'ipconfig' (stand on one foot)

    Now I'm completely addicted to Windows. And I'm so glad my car Windows open and close with the same speed as my PC. Deep inside I'm a MS-DOS.

    I just couldn't stand the multiple Workspaces in Linux and it really bugged me how the OS could only take a small amount of my huge RAM. With Windows, I really feel the system working most notably in the lag of opening the file browser and other small programs, thus I know that my computer power is fully utilized.

    Thanks MS.

    MS-DOS has the best error levels. Way better than '$?' found in "Linux"..

    Ah, the sweet sound of the hard disks being read when no apps are running and updates requiring a restart when I am in the middle of doing something important, like replying to a joke thread.

    I used W7 for like 15 minutes this morning. Once it finished updates, then restarted, I just let grub take me to my happy place.

    after switching to ubuntu, i've lost any frame of reference i used to have when friends and family that expect me to support them complain to me about their unstable systems fraught with malware. it was so much easier to fix other people's machines after struggling with the same issues on my machine.

    now, i'm just seen as an elitist, who doesn't want to be with the common folk

    the only way to experience the pain again in order for firsthand commiseration is to go back to Windows.
