    Microsoft Desperation!

    In short I am done with Microsoft.

    They just can’t give you proper program support. I had a registry worm and it all but destroyed my system. I am totally done with it now. All Microsoft products are so crappy and you always have to pay $80 for this and $120 for that.

    I have spent over R9000 on Microsoft products “R6000 "In the day" on Vista Ultimate and R3000 on Office 2007” and it is getting to the point where Microsoft wants millionaires not users using their programs.

    So I am hoping that UNIX or Linux can save me from Microsoft.

    Yes you cannot play games on Linux but F*ck it! I don’t need game support all I need is something that can still run my Office 2007. That is the only compatibility I want in a Linux system right now.

    Also if it can run “Word-Web” it will be a wonderful help. I am not interested in free fix tools that is sponsored by Pornography and I am done Goolge-ing for ways to fix a registry that is basically impossible to fix without some BS program that some wank*r programmed came up with for Microsoft.

    Any suggestions and where I can get a Free DVD for a proper Linux OS also if you can give me the website I will make a plan for downloading it.

    I was a Microsoft Monk but in the end it was just another dead
    religion!

    Why not switch to a Mac then. Plenty of Linux stuff out there, but you may need to move over to star office.

    Unfortunately I need Office 2007. That’s why I have it. All my work must be done on Office 2007 it is a work requirement.

    Thing is these Virus coders must understand that they are helping Microsoft to make even more money out of them. It is my opinion that the Virus coding gets turned into profit that takes the form of fix-ware software that only cost you $40 US. I am thinking that viruses are being contracted because there is just no end to them and it is a profitable market that keeps the internet for ransom.

    This being said I have personally decommissioned internet capability for about 5 offices consisting of about 80 to a 100 computers in total. That is 100 users that will no longer use the internet at all. “Sold a few fax-systems about 25 of them ” Also the policies is getting stricter by the day...

    See Virus programmers think that most companies cannot function without the internet but they are dead wrong about this assumption! They can! I have seen 5 companies functioning better without the net at this point in time.

    The scary thing is, is fax the end of e-mail?

    the internet is only truly necessary when you need to check emails, take a look at your product site, take a look at competitor sites, and if you solve problems using it.
    fax being the end of email is kinda backward mate. it's a lot easier to send reports n shiet through a lone PDF to an email account than faxing the pages through. That said, it's easier getting those pesky pron and v14gr4 ads coming through email hahaha =P
    in the end it's just whichever is easier.

    6k for vista ultimate. nope, dunno how you did it. not even incredible corruption steps that high.

    I'll suggest kubuntu. intuitive, easy to understand version, with app-get being your best friend ^^

    with that you should download WINE to get .EXEs running. haven't tested that too extensively. just be careful, I think I used up about a gig and a half in updating it with the app-get reccomended stuffs.

    virus writing is a very lucrative business it seems. I can bet it's very similar to medicine. originally people would fix the issues, and feel good about themselves. what was the last major disease cured, fully? polio in 1950. our technology moves forward, but the greed stays.

    Like that. Dont even have mine plugged in more. Most people use 086 now which is expensive to fax to. In the last year only had to send one fax i think...

    Hi
    You can get Office 2007 for a Mac, that way you get to use the product that you want and run on a different operating system.

    The last time I tried Open Office, there were little formatting discrepancies when opening a Word document that were pretty irritating. That was about two years ago, so it might have improved since.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
