I’d like to say that posts like this break my heart.
I don’t like Ubuntu! It’s NOT easy to work with, very SUPER HARD infact. I can’t get my belkin wireless card to install, nor can I get my on-board sound to install.
What good is this OS “Ubuntu” if you can’t go online to the internet OR get sound? I tried for many hours and hours and hours. I gave up. I will stay with VISTA!
At least I can go to the internet with NO problem and listen to music.
But they don’t. It’s not that I’ve become hard-hearted toward newbs, or adopted the self-confident smirk of a Linux geek. It’s because the poster, whoever he or she was, presented their dissatisfaction as a hasty generalization. Think about it this way:
- My wireless card and sound card don’t work.
- I can’t go online or get sound.
- Therefore, “what good is this OS?”
Ah, grasshopper. You’ve committed a simple logical fallacy by assuming since it didn’t work for you, it doesn’t work for everyone, and therefore the OS is worthless. But it does work, probably for more people than just you, which means you’re probably in a minority.
No, what really happened is that you couldn’t get it working, you quit and you went back to Vista. Therefore the error was not with Ubuntu, the error was with you.
Have fun with Vista.
