No, Windows is not a virus. Here's what viruses do:



* They replicate quickly - okay, Windows does that.



* Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so - okay, Windows does that.



* Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk - okay, Windows does that too.



* Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh... Windows does that, too.



* Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. Yup, that's with Windows, too.



Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences:Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.



Therefore, Windows is not a virus.

We all must conform. I agree with you on all points, but Windows is still the most user friendly to stupid people. I'm not sure about that verse Mac though.

Everyone, install linux! Not a stupid rpm distro though, go with debian! Or...if you're feeling like a challenge, give gentoo a shot.

I can have Linux, but I have an onboard lan card so I can't have internet with it. I use Knoppix because I download too much but it kindof sucks because it's slow (because it's off a cd-rom) and I can't have the internet. I have slackware downloaded though and I like that, I just have to buy a new computer for it.

No, there are many reasons not to switch. Some of them being:
- you share the computer with people who are too stupid to use Linux
- you started a project with Windows and due to limited time, you can't switch until it's done
There are lots more, but my point is that my main point is that I'd be on Linux if it weren't for the other people who use this computer (God, please get me a laptop). And yes, Microsoft really is that bad.

Oh sorry, I fell on the floor laughing at that. Man, typing sure is slow when you have one hand on your forehead in the shape of an 'L'.

*sigh* That's the idea behind Linux.

See, if I were using a Microsoft program (that is, IE) I'd be looking at your stupid pciture right now. Luckily, OS software saves the day again.

If more things were made for Linux then it would be more widely used.

Linux does have some good things though. OpenOffice is just as good as Word, the games are awesome and better than windows games, it's got some cool eye things that follow your mouse, etc. I'm not sure what the command line has because I'm stupid and haven't explored that yet.
