Linux is not Windows is not windows is not windows. Am not sure how much longer i have to stress it but Linux is not windows.
This is why i refuse to call any linux distro a windows replacement. its an OS on its own and has its own ways of doing things. WINDOWS doesnt set the standard of how a computer should behave,
Most of the issues the blog post talked about concerned gnome. on kde i could right click on an object and send it anywhere on my desktop. XFCE with thunar also has that kind of behavior. and also on kde you can right click a drive and safely remove it.
The biggest issue here is this people were not well informed about linux and just expected to see windows in a different name.
An Indian(?) asks about why "we" use refresh alot:
The inference that Indians do this a lot is weak from that page, but the following has a little more meat on it:
Again, I did not use "ritual" or "religion" in my original posts - and again, a ritual is not necessary a religious one. I have rituals I go through in order to get up for work and go to bed at night.
I mentioned cultural traits because I am unaware of any other group of ppl who do that with their Windows installations. Therefore I suspect a regional or cultural behaviour is operating.
Interesting idea that refresh might be some sort of stress relief or idling time.
