Yes Its a big hit
No It has to still Improve
It rules over MS popularity
It has brought down MS to a greater extent
I use personal firewall when online in Windows.. If i block svchost (a win process) it doesnt allow ANY (DAMN) Transaction on the net...Its like 'lockin all connections!!!' And that file connects to Win site.. some others are also there, like some time sync etc..
Well, heres what i do these days: I have srated convincing people to use fedora, if not ubuntu!!!
They complain about the dependencies and net..
So i say install fedora then, i have the src of the apts generally needed, so they can be compiled!!!!
Atleast, they are turning to linux!!!
Now its time for Me to turn to Fedora!!!
Ubuntu not working on my PC, dont know y...
It just doesnt boot!!!!!
It started with 7.10 since i installed my Lan card Hardware..
I thought it wil be cleared atleast with the new versiion.. but...
Rt nw, m using a P4, 1.5 Gz with 256 Mb RAM 30Gb HDD... I know its quite an old conf, but lemme tell u, i was using 7.10 on a P3-450Mz with 256Mb n 20Gb!!! So there shouldnt be any problem with the current conf!!!! Rt??
Older versions like 6.06 work Fine, pretty fine, STILL!!
Even Fedora 8 works fine!!
So, m left with no choice but turn to Fedora.....
But still, my mission to spread Linux continues.....
I started using Ubuntu because it was the only distro at that time (November 2005) which recognized my ethernet card. I've stuck with it since.
There was a time in between when no distro would recognize my ethernet card (mid-way 2007) and other parts of my hardware suddenly stopped working in all distros (old as well as new versions) while everything worked fine in Windows for a few months, but that might have some hardware problem. It all magically started working fine again on a random day, and I've been back on Ubuntu since then.
I guess we need more hype.. People aren't just ready to change (ie shift from MS)
