Why I don't like windows....

While watching a friend try and get wireless networking up and running on Windows XP I was reminded why I dislike configuring/administering windows.....

(21:23:52) Ed: erm to tell the truth I've lost the thing which says the SNR now
(21:24:04) Ed: I know there's a button for it somewhere...

It keeps trying to protect the user from themselves... and hides stuff behind guis.

service pack 2...

I hear that XPSP2 will make wireless a lot less painful; I wouldn't know, I don't run a wireless net...
On the whole Linux will hide it behind just the one command though, and it doesn't tend to get moved around or removed at the whim of the company making it... Not to mention explaing over the phone, "type foo into your command line", is one hell of a lot simpler than saying well click this button, then this button, then dance around your maypole and click this next button.

Linux/Unix is user friendly, it's just picky about it's friends.

There must be a song in that somewhere...
The server machine is kept so clean
Till the attack of the latest worm
The users' work is shot
Admins' day is fscked
And their thoughts turn to their old Commodore

A gig of swap ain't enough to stop
The machine from crashing when it feels like thrashing
They can see no reasons
'Cause there are no reasons
What reasons does it need?

Tell me why!
I don't like Windows
Tell me why!
I don't like Windows
Tell me why!
I don't like Windows
I want to shu-u-u-u--u-ut the whole OS down...
