That is a big problem on those kind of forums that give "prizes" , for the most posts, and
others that require x number of post before you can do this or ask that, etc,...
"little kiddie games",..
Most of the posters are only posting "kiddie nonsense", trying to get a prize, or
a more "important" title,..
Fortunately we do not have that here. But like any public forum, there are all ways some people that can be outright annoying,...
In any event, I try to solve all of my technical problems myself, and not ask on any forum, but here, when I first started using Debian, I did have a couple of questions, and was surprised to get relatively quick responses, and no nonsense,
even though some of my questions could have been solved by reading documentation, and searches, I did make a point, and take the time to explain why I had not yet done a search, nor read anything.
I posted my questions early in the morning, and when I got off work in the evening , and was able to check in, there were answers, or at least links to where
I could get the answers,.. which was great, that way I was able to get busy trying the things suggested, or reading the documentation I was referred to.
I avoid forums that are mostly MS windows users, they have nothing to offer anyway, sometimes I get discouraged on this forum, because it seems like there
are so many that really, the only thing they seem to care about is getting the MS malware to work, after they install Debian, which does not make sense to me,
I mean why would one need that garbage, when they have a good linux system installed ? , unfortunately for them they can not live with out Microsoft,... but any way, that is another topic, besides that , not my problem.. I have done just fine without microsoft mal-ware for over 15 years,... so I do know one thing for sure, nobody really needs it, Of course at work, if that is what they have on the computers, one does not have much choice,...or needs to look for another employer. anyway, sorry, that would be another topic,...
by vbrummond »I asked why performance on Mac OS plummeted as of the 5.0 release. They told me "use windows"
That is the common mentality of MS malware users,...they have no clue that there is other, better options,..most do not even know what Unix is, nor Linux.
So that is all they can suggest,... reminds me of a idiot in the "technical support" for a the USB broadband device I have, when I told them I was using Linux,...
the response, "Oh,..no,...it only works on Windows, you have to use windows,..."
I did get it working,...and I did not have to start using windows,... However on that one, I did "cheat" a little,.. I took the device to a computer repair shop, explained to the guy the problem,.. we plugged it in to a computer with windows, activated it,..and after that it worked fine even on my Linux system.
You would think the "technical support" people would know that,...and be able to just tell a person, "Oh, you can not activate it on a linux system, you will need to use a computer that has windows on it to do that",... Once activated it does not care what the OS is.
