  • [QUOTE=Bingybob;17096178]2. Why would I even need to if I'm already an administrator. 3. Doesn't look as good. I don't see why looks should affect other processes in a OS in a fast pc. 4. 5. No. Its not you can look on the options for compatability you have to do it yourself. 6. So what its still not powerful(fast) [editline]03:28AM[/editline] OpenSolaris is still... not so compatible. Its great but I can't run much. If Sun fixes these problems I'd love it.[/QUOTE] I dont think youre quite grasping this. Nothing but windows will every nativly run windows apps properly. ReactOS is as close as you will get, but prepare to be dissapointed. Wine on *nix will get most games working, at the cost of speed. Stick with XP / Vista / 7.
  • If you really dislike the security of Windows 7 or Vista, you could either disable those services, or if you're too dense to figure that out, go with XP. It's still a great OS, in spite of its age.
  • You need to install other programs to get primary programs to run? Sounds like you are doing it wrong. "3rd party" and "1st party" doesn't really mean anything in the open-source community.
  • [QUOTE=Bingybob;17096178]2. Why would I even need to if I'm already an administrator. [/QUOTE] You don't need to if you don't want to. Just disable UAC. You'll lose security, but no more nags about anything. I disabled it right after I installed Vista, but I'm not the type of people that gets viruses anyway. I heard they made UAC less of an ass on Windows 7 though, have to re-evaluate it when I get it. Btw, what is this thread doing in the programming section anyway?

If an OS doesn't run Windows programs as fast as Windows does it's apparently a "problem" with the OS, but you don't want to use Windows. What do you want us to do?
