Re: Why is Ubuntu so cool?

Ive been building and maintaining home/gaming computers for going on 10 years now. I agree with most in the sense that every OS has a place. Open source programs are great, I have very few problems with them. I have never had a hard time finding support for any software in Ubuntu or any other linux distro. Anyone who groups all of something together and calls it bad in ignorant. Sure some open source apps are bad, some are the best software available. Just like some non open source apps are terrible(im not going to name names....but I could). Im not a fan of Microsoft as a company so I do my best not to buy the products they offer.

those managers you suggest don't even connect with vlc.
so when you open vlc you have to choose open a file. LOL it's a pos.
big deal it plays shit. whooptie doo. that's what it's supposed to do.
but I have to search through my files and find the song or artist i want.
that's what makes it a 1/2 assed player.
VLC is a cross platform media PLAYER.

Windows media player is a MEDIA MANAGER and PLAYER.

VLC works exactly the same in windows, linux, and OS X. VLC's appeal is that you don't have to install a million codecs to play different encoded media.
Why should the media managers connect with VLC? Windows media player doesn't either. Like I said earlier....PEBKAC. If you want a media manager, use a media manager. Don't use a simple player then bitch about it. it's not rocket science.

I hate spending hours to achieve a simple task, and that's what you get when using linux.. The cool thing is if you are really nasty with it, it comes in VERY handy on apples. You feel like a regular hacker when you drop to a command line and start fingering and sniffing things out lol
I haven't had anything but good support from the open source community from my experience. I think the apple guys are bigger elite dicks lol
