When I first got wind of Linux from a coworker in 1997, I looked into it because it was not expensive and resembled the systems I used in uni. I can't shake the feeling that these commercials were meant to imply the same
So you can laugh in Apple's face.
No, they're proprietary.
basement dweller, go back to masturbating over yaoi
youve seen the video right? fuck off you weak troll
it clearly is...
@TutorialKidOfDOOM you have windows and Mac OS backwards... the operating system Linux is free, Apple's OS is $29.99 and Windows OS $265 for the full featured or $100 for the home version which holds out on you... I use all 3 so I don't care what anyone else uses, but you should have your facts right.- However, if your talking the cost of hardware, Linux isn't a player since they don't make any... and windows only makes paid software. so...? lol
That may be so, but when you have an OS and the hardware of a Mac, it still costs around double what a Windows machine would have, and a bit more for linux
makes video trying to promote Linux, doesn't actually make any points why its better than Windows or Mac...
Apple OS X Lion = $36. Apple hardware to put it on ~ Your left nut
@TutorialKidOfDOOM your comparison isn't right, because if you say free for Linux, then you'Re just talking about the OS. and in this case it's windows the most expensive.
Are Linux girls open source as well ?
Linuxwhat? Shouldnt it be Mac, and two PCs?
@LordDestros who told you that Gnu hurd is under GPL sure they shared the code-base
I gotta say that I love the people who say how much Linux sucks , but yet over 85% of online forums , websites , servers , hulu , netflix , PSN , SOE , etc etc run...Linux go figure right. But then again I guess that's how you tell the difference between users , loud mouths and real IT guru's
@TutorialKidOfDOOM actually mac is no overpriced a copy of osx is 30 bucks, and if you dont wanna pay like 1000 dollars you can just make a hackintosh...
Novell gay ipx protocol
Linux gave me eye strain... no joke. well, Ubuntu gave me eye strain... that was last year. This year it won't duel boot with win7 and I'm not going to leave win7 to attempt to try linux again.
@MrBearRoars It didnt delete linux, it most likely just took over grub as the bootloader. Unless, of course, you installed it on the whole hdd rather then just the partition. you could try EasyBCD
@panton41 "Plenty of Linux distros would pass the Open Group's UNIX certification, but their makers don't pursue it for several reasons."
Potentially true but I don't believe it's ever been done (e.g. by Red Hat, Novell, IBM, etc.) and not all distributions are necessarily fully POSIX-compliant out of the box. As far as I'm concerned though, UNIX certification is irrelevant; I didn't intend to make being "Unix-like" sound as if it were somehow worse.
@LordDestros Plenty of Linux distros would pass the Open Group's UNIX certification, but their makers don't pursue it for several reasons. Part of being certified as UNIX means providing a certain level of support, plus the monetary cost of the actual process, which doesn't make sense when your upgrade cycle is six-months long and a bulk of your users are getting the product for little to no cost. Not to mention there are Linux compatibility targets which are, frankly, much more modern goals.
@doemaeries Linux isn't from GNU... GNU's kernel, Hurd, has never shared a codebase. That said Linux is only only Unix-like whereas Mac OS X has been UNIX-certified since Leopard.
Mac- I am expensive
PC- I've had plastic surgery (transition to windows 7)
Linux- I'm free and open source, meaning you can suit me to your needs, oh and i will only change my apperance at your command
@awdean1 linux is from GNU. there is a diffrent
Mac osx and Linux are form the same family UNIX
Are you running Linux?
@unrealjeff It didn't do anything O.O. Largely incompatible with my computer. Wasn't friendly with my VGA card (which is nothing to write home about but I spent good money on it)
@unrealjeff I'd like to say about 9 months ago.
Here Linux seems like it's the ruler of the world and Macs & PCs are just garbage. And it's as evil as you can see.
OS X = Unix = Linux
I used Ubuntu for a day, gave up and went back to Windows XP.
Try me, gentlemen.
@megamanxdeath LOL... I like linux and windows 7 is okay.. but everyone has their own opinion :D
@Rubiksguy97 i agree dude
mac is the best the the price is worth it... i used windows linux and mac and i have to say mac is the best no matter how much it costs...
@megamanxdeath windows 7 sucks compared to mac os x... mac is the best
Well mac = linux but with softwar ethat you paid for.
And Windows copied both operating system.
I still like windows though, a good stable os, that is top 1 in the market.
Does no-one care that Linux is not just free as in beer but free as in freedom?
and the same can be said with most software that runs on it.
Good things about linux: Its free
Good things about mac and pc: everything
@Rubiksguy97 Actually, your wrong once again, Linux comes with LOTS of programs for daily computing, as well as an easy way for a user to download an additional program if they see that they need to. You are losing this argument.
@Rubiksguy97 Actually, no, no it is not. OS X is nowhere near where linux is right now in terms of stability, linux is defiantly way higher than OS X and windows.
not more than me ;)
Nixie is cool, I use Ultimate Edition for it's out of the box applications; burning DVDs and THOGGEN rocks :)
i love linux
Computers will be the end of us, just you wait. It won't be like Terminator, it will become the new religion. People will fight, bomb and kill other over allegiance to an OS. I already see WAY too much hate in the comments belong. "they are the worst peace of shit out there" Does it really require you to swear and freak out? Calm down...
ace142, what you probably missed (and that's really easy to do, when you're used to commercial OS's) is that many Linux Distros have a 6 month release cycle. The experience you had a few years ago has probably NOTHING to do with how Linux behaves today (on the surface). Grab the latest Mint Linux ISO, burn it and boot from the CD. It will give you a glimpse at today's Linux. (rated up cause it's a somehow a valid argument)
@LordDestros Made me giggle. You sir have made my day.
/facepalm you sir fail, your comment is invalid for bing a dumbass.
the future is open
I use Ultimate Edition because almost everything I would ever need is right out of the box ready to go.
I know one thing FORCE QUIT does not MESS AROUND in LINUX unlike Apple where it lags and takes it's sweet ass time
Mint has flash and such to begin with, but bases on Ubuntu and so is fairly similar. Dunno about openSUSE.
GNU/Linux (what you called Linux) is however strikingly different from the core up. There are so-called 'desktop environments', which people can use which are like Windows' interface, but these are inter-changeable. Ubuntu uses one of the big ones called 'GNOME', but there are several others to choose from. And this is only one thing, there are a lot of other choices in general too.
I moved pretty comftably form xp to vista and from vista to w7.
Do people actually use linux I tried using it few years ago did't really see why should i see extra trouble.
Anyone who would like to try a Linux can download 'Live' CD. Then run the OS from the disk like you could do with Macs. I have to say new Ubuntu's are fucking slick!
Don't forget retards who don't know what the hell they're talking about. There are some of those guys here, too.
I'm one of the privileged few who has had the chance to meet one face-to-face. Well, user-to-user, or whatever.
To everyone who is trying to debate about computers: It's not worth it, get a life. All the people watching this are Linux fanboys, and we all know what happens when you get a fanboy in with the logical thinkers.
It's not worth debating here.
if there are any people here who wanna try Linux or haven't used it and are just spamming old myths here are the facts
1) Mac and Windows both have trojans and worms, linux gets one every couple of months or years and every single linux thread is notified where the viruses are as soon as they're found.
2) There is a free alternative to virtually every single program you use. (even 500 dollar software)
3)If we don't have it, VMware.
Oh yes it is!
yes, my wife
I know a woman that uses Linux... Have you ever heard of Nixie Pixel ... She knows more about Linux than most men.
No. Macs use Intel Core Duos.
Nope. It's definitely not just me.
I think it's just you Pokemon Einstein!
...Is it just me, or are these commercials even worse than Apple's new Windows 7 vs. Snow Leopard commercials?
PEBCAK. Nuff said.
In that case why not voice your opinion by boycotting all services with relation to Linux.
wtf im not spam biatch
WINE Sucks. Almost as bad as Macs Virtual Windows crap.
It simply doesn't have the Library support that the actual OS has. You just can't run advanced programs that utilize it's driver functionality.
and why linux suck's?its support the games y play...also support the programs y use...see?for me linux is perfect,now repeat again what you said.
stfu dude keep ur dumb opinions for you
LINUX IS SHIT. PERIOD.
Heheheheheh...I said period :D
Congratulations. YOUR NOT RETARDED! lol.
But we talking here about PC as platform made by IBM, not type of device, duh it a personal computer, but this is not a point.. Anyone can make other platform, but calling it PC would made costumers think in wrong way. You can't run OS X on PC without modifications and Windnows on Mac (even if Microsoft doing it instead you). Linux as kernel is ready to run on both in it's one modular source code.
So call Mac as Mac PC if you want ;]
PC is (was) IBM PC ;]
Yea OS X have more ports from linux then Windows ;]
running Linux. Photo library cause your to Retarded to put Pictures in designated Folders.
I would consider trying linux if it could actually RUN anything...
What is at the core of a Mac? A UNIX based Kernel... so why the hatred for Linux, Mac and Linux are practically brothers.
who the fuck would get linux fuckin shit heads and who would get windows
You said "How many things can you do that I can't with Windows exactly?". By that, I gather you are asking what Linux couldn't do when compared to Windows, so I just told you that you can have freedom in Linux, while you can't in Windows.
I'm sorry if you can't process that much information, but it's your fault for not getting the point.
Actually I used Windows for a very long time and I have found that linux for the most part has MUCH better driver support than windows.. most things work out of the box... whereas with windows I was always downloading drivers etc.. Not to mention I had to re-install Vista just recently on my aunts Dell and had to manually download every driver for WiFi etc.. set it up for a dual boot with Kubuntu 9.04 and everything "just worked" after the install.. no hunting for drivers everywhere.
A lot of things don't support the 64 bit versions of Linux, but you can run the Wine Windows compatibility layer program or a whole host of other programs for the drivers.
Lol, I prefer mac to windows (never tried linux) but this is quite funny! LOL!
wel, it depends on what you like... i prefer suse
Ha ha! This is a pretty good ad. I used to have a PC, but I did use it mainly for Linux. I use a Mac now, but most of my software for work purposes are Linux ports. And I *still* want to get he Beryl desktop cube on my Mac. ^_^
the linux girl is pretty hot
Huh? OSX technically is linux, no?
Does anyone know who that beautiful girl was in this ad spoof? Has she done any TV or something else? I'd sure like to know what else she's done! What's her name - is she in IMDB?
XNU is not a true microkernel as is Mach. Instead it is a hybrid kernel as a result of the merger with BSD.
"the userland is BSD modified to work with the kernel"
No. To quote Wikipedia: "The Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) portion of the kernel provides the POSIX API (BSD system calls), the Unix process model atop Mach tasks, basic security policies, user and group ids, permissions, the network stack, the virtual file system code (including a filesystem independent journalling layer), Network File System (NFS), cryptographic framework...", etc. For more info just look up XNU on Wikipedia.
IIRC, the kernel is entirely mach.
the userland is BSD modified to work with the kernel
Linux is cool but it just cant compete with windows and i hate novell i have both windows xp media center edition and kubuntu on my pc
LOL, Cheeky! 5 stars.
