Thread: known bug in sun's ensemble installer

  1. Re: known bug in sun's ensemble installer

    for all that cheap powerful hardware, i was just at my friends this
    weekend to do some "video editing" adn video cd burning of his
    collection of old 8mm "art films"... while there my friend offered an
    ***unsolicited*** critique of windows XP.. that XPs directory
    structure needs to be simplified, that it has too many branches off the
    root directory, that it is harder to navigate than win98... my friend
    was having trouble finding things again, adn the windows explorer in xp
    makes it difficult ot find the actual directory where certaikn desired
    files are stored..

    of course i explained to this friend for the millionth time how GEOs
    already has the best and simple and easiest to navigate directory
    structure and that if he waits ten years, microsoft just might get
    around ot simplifiying the unnecessarily complicated XP mulituser
    (unneeded feature), many foldered OS which no one really needs at
    home... especially when, as pat loves to point out, PCs are so cheap
    that home users can buy a pc for each person in the house, and run on
    each pc a simpler, easier to maintain and navigate single user OS .


    and by the way... the great pc running XP locked up incessantly while
    burning video CDs.. maede the CDs fail and of course, teh computer
    would hang, CD stuck in drive,.. adn we had ot cut the power ot the
    pc and reboot just to get access to the cd drive to remove the disk..
    of which we then had to fully erase teh CD-RW disk for reburning since
    it would not play at all in his new panasonic DVD player (happened
    several times).. this problem was only fixed after isolating/diagnosing
    the problem and downloading an ***obscure**** NTI CDmaker 2000
    customized for polaroid CDRW drive patch from NTI's website.

    so much for the " easy to use XP OS software" story line.. had i not
    diagnosed and fixed his pc/software, the expenisive XP toy would have
    never worked and my friend would not be enjoying his "art films" on
    video Cds.

    moral of the story is : XP is no guarantee of reliability or pain free
    com[puting expeirience.. adn if the same programming and financial
    resources would be thrown at geos as are thrown at all version of
    windows, geos wouild bury windows with ease of use adn a much more
    satisfying computing experience .. it is the only true consumer product
    OS out there for IBM compatible PCs, which the global pc demonstrates
    very well.

    every basement in america is a repository of plenty of ISa bus parts.

    geos can run on new, modern, supposedly energy efficent "blow dryer"
    computer hardware..

    in fact, if geos use would become more widespead, computers would
    rapidly become even more energy efficient, aloowing for het mothballing
    of an untold number of Nuke/coalfired/natrual gas fired electric
    generating plants

  6. Re: known bug in sun's ensemble installer

    So geos is efficient.. i assume you mean more effiicent than windows..,
    adn you say that is an advantage..

    what you fail to understand is that windows did not become "more
    efficient" ..


    More powerful computer hardware has simply helped hide severe basic
    structural design flaws in the many very inefficient versions of windows
    people buy over and over and over..



    what other advatnages would you say geos has over windows?

    All their wealth combined adds practically nothing to the reveue base in

    My stocks have gone up since I dollar cost average. Why not go live in a
    country where you can watch inflation eat your currency like cancer.

  19. Re: known bug in sun's ensemble installer

    i say its over when breadbox throws in the towel and either gnu licenses
    all the geos code or sells it to India or China..... and then it will
    not really be over.. it will be a new beginning.

    i guess it will be really really really over when Bill G buys up the
    geos source code and burns it in the massive fireplace in his giant mansion.

    Nope, I can't and I don't think any person can predict the future, but many
    claims they can, like Nostradamus...... ;-)
