I have been waiting for this for a long time, so now i am going to crisin it with mindless bable because now that its finally here I have nothing good to say.

So I am going to let this thread be the just general get started thread. Come in, say hi, tell the guys how cool you think it is that we now have a general forum. Finally a place where I can talk linux with people who actualy care as opposed to the people who just smile and not and go back to thier windows.

Eh, Linux is OK. I prefer it over Mac and Windows. But truth be told, all Operating Systems are monsters. =(

I'm a bit curious why they'd use Windows in a school enviorment with it's history of security issues though.

At my high school, we have 98. Why? Because the 3 (yes, three) sys admin/tech people in my school district havn't been trained with anything else.

We have 1ghz machines with 98 on them (that originally had 2000), because certain people refuse to learn something new. Even slightly new.

Then, in order to keep us "safe", they disable downloding, they have a filter (that blocks out things like slashdot... evil!), and some other minor things... all of which can be solved with Poledit (which coincidently comes on the windows CD).

We don't have Word or anything which would require windows either. =/

And we can't bring laptops to school. ;-_-

*grumbles*

And if they catch you using SSH to connect to your home computer, they call you a hacker and suspend your computer priveleges. XD


In other words: My school sucks worse than all of yalls. biggrin.gif
