I should say that I commonly find myself being annoyed by "user friendly" features so that is not necessarily a selling point for me. I am more interested in Linux because it allows customization. If I am already going to have a win7 partition for when I just need to get something done, my linux partition would be for doing the things that are a hassle in windows. One thing I've noticed from using windows 7 elsewhere is that it breaks alot of my scripts by demanding permissions before running a script from within a script. Using linux, there is a way to turn off this behavior, correct?:
If you change over to linux
get use to
and typing your PW constantly to do admin stuff which is everything, even running firestarter, you have to enter your pw.
Ok, I will probably get windows 7 and then also check out linux mint or peppermint as a second partition.
Think about it, does someone really want to learn the idiosyncrasies of 9 new programs at once? I haven't heard anyone raving about how the open source software is superior, it is just cheaper and supposedly more customizable. I think the smartest thing is to have windows to allow me to keep doing what I am doing (for the most part), then also have linux to use when windows won't cut it and for experimentation/learning.
I understand your gonna use both or might or w/e, What the three question mark confused face is for, is that, you said your gonna use windows 7 but you don't like user friendly stuff. lol And don't take my words as bad or insulting they have no tone.https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=90953.msg1005699#msg1005699
