Re: Problems installing FC4 on Dell Optiplex GX620



You're right I was wrong in how I expressed myself in my last post.

Please forgive the troll-like nature of my words and let me simply say this:

There are many tools out there and many jobs.  I have a leatherman tool that
has a knife, plyers, screwdrivers etc.  I would not use it as a hammer nor
would I use it were I in need of a tool to screw in 100 #3 philips screws.

Linux has it's place and does quite well at many things.  It is not,
however, the tool for all jobs.  I will not pretend that Linux is perfect or
better than any other tool in my toolbox.  It is a tool and it is very
useful to me.  Currently, it is a ball-ache to force Fedora Core 4 to use
SATA drives properly.  Fedora Core 5 is just on the horizon and I am
hopeful.

Cheers
