    Book i read.
    Friday, March 03, 2006
    My computer said 'Requires Windows XP or better'. So I installed LINUX.
    Need i say more? I don't think i have to say anything about it but i'll tell you about it as a geek., i'm not a geek i'm just Jamloceng. I tried a software for HTML editing and a MsgBox ( message box ) said that i need to install XP or better. I'm using Win98 SE because i want to save my RAM from loading those "do-i-really-need-that" GUI of XP.

    So i use WINE to emulate it on a Debian machine. Works fine but with hickups here and there but this is better then running something that is hungry for resources. Why must certain software forces users to use certain module of OS's? Why can i run software that was made for XP on Win98? I don't think it's about the language or new implementation of coding from Microsoft. If you're using Delphi, VB, VC or any language, it should be ok to run on any version of Windows.

    A secret "i'll-scratch-your-back" agreement maybe? I have no idea. Software should give users more freedom. Don't force us to upgrade our OS or hardware. Let that option as an option but not as compulsory. Oh well, now the software running ( emulated ) on Debian, i'm happy with it and guess what, i'm using the same computer with the same hardware. Man, give me a break.
