Dont ditch Windows!

Filed under
Humor

Being the most friendly OS from time immemorial, Windows serves as a very good platform to learn for young minds. Who else can teach us of security threats, virus attacks, boring graphics, almost zero eye-candy, less than optimum hardware utilization, a binding EULA, the most annoying WGA - Windows Genuine Advantage, almost useless updates, easy back-doors, and blah blah blah...

After experiencing the above things, keep your frustration from erupting and calm down. list down all the problems and try to look for answers in the FOSS world! the power is limitless coz, people dont work for money's sake and the prime focus is on overall quality.

i did the same thing by installing Ubuntu on my PC and I am a happier man since then! After a little meddling work with PC, there was no turning back... Yay!! Humanity for others has given me limitless freedom!

PS:Windows can still be used to play games, until u caome across WINE short for windows emulator. only if it fails will u boot up Windows, unless u r desperate to use the application which failed, or till support for your problem will be offered with a solution!

Try it, and see the ocean of change, for yourself.
signing off,

Goodbye Solaris

  • Guilty SPARC: Oracle euthanizes Solaris 12, expunging it from roadmap
    Rumors have been circulating since late last year that Oracle was planning to kill development of the Solaris operating system, with major layoffs coming to the operating system's development team. Others speculated that future versions of the Unix platform Oracle acquired with Sun Microsystems would be designed for the cloud and built for the Intel platform only and that the SPARC processor line would meet its demise. The good news, based on a recently released Oracle roadmap for the SPARC platform, is that both Solaris and SPARC appear to have a future. The bad news is that the next major version of Solaris—Solaris 12— has apparently been canceled, as it has disappeared from the roadmap. Instead, it's been replaced with "Solaris 11.next"—and that version is apparently the only update planned for the operating system through 2021.
  • Oracle Finally Confirms It's Canning Solaris 12
    At the beginning of December there were rumors of Oracle canning Solaris and now that's finally been confirmed by Oracle more or less as they will not be delivering Solaris 12. According to Ars, they got confirmation from Oracle that they will not be going ahead with Solaris 12 as planned. Solaris 12 has been canceled and wiped off their roadmap. Oracle is said to be working on a "Solaris.next", but no details yet. This "Solaris.next" is also reportedly the only planned Solaris update through 2021.
