some 5970 are special editions which are kinda collectors items like the xfx black edition ones who have special boxes and such costs much more, and i consider them very rare which ofcourse make them costly even second hand
I saw one trying to sell his xfx 5970 BE for almost 650 euro so with current dollar value is a lot
@P4man i just installed the latest ubuntu 11.10 but it would not work well in vm somehow it got screwed up big time
, and yes linux has a problem with the latest hardware as allways it tags along when new things come out windows is the first to have working drivers
But my actual problem is the usage of programs the ladies use endless keystroke commands for their word and such which ofcourse not work in linux counterparts also the company whiteoffice would take me months of fiddling. So its easy linux will never be an option for me, i simply can not make the time to change everything so that the ladies can work like they are used to at their jobs.
I am not saying linux is bad i am just saying it takes too much time to change it all, now i just import the settings from the office when its changed again and they get the same keystrokes, logos, letters, whatever is needed and that all with minimum time from me.
Do not get wrong i myself use for example hyper-v server and server 2008r2 since i hardly spend much time in normal windows itself, i use like at the job basically cmd prompts. Yes i started to be lazy myself, when i have to work in true-unix 64 or the other unix system V i sometimes type the win cmds which obvious do not work xD
I am sure that if the unix machines could be replaced and ms/intel could offer a similar performing system and the software running on it would do well on these, i would instant replace them to get a just one os in the whole company.
Sadly till today that is still not possible to replace just one of the 64 cpu alpha machines would cost estimated 5 time as much especially cause the software is all custom made. And intel solutions to not scale anything near these monsters.
Now back to linux as long as people just do certain tasks and they are openminded they can quickly learn to use linux, but when they do more things then just click the icons preinstalled by people like you or me it ends.
I have tried to let a friend install a program on his linux box which went wrong the installer failed and destroyed the previous installed program, it took me hours to get it back working again without loosing his precious work. Now yes i consider myself not a wizard on linux but i am still one who can get most things working... the guy would never got it in working order without me plain and simple
So linux still never beats ms his crap in that respect, yes some things got better but again only if all goes well. When something fails i rather have a windows client then a linux client in every way possible.
I hate microsoft and its arrogant way of thinking alot but its the most user friendly ever and will be for a very long time, till linux finds the same solutions when problems occurs without having to reinstall the os and all needed programs.
I do use linux myself sometimes for some tasks but to be honest in most cases i use the win solutions often, i hope some day it will change because i would love to see an open os as easy as ms windows on all pc's, but till linux has got to this level its just dream not come true yet.
