As If Korea Weren’t a Loyal Enough Microsoft Colony…

Seriously, more Active X shit? WFT?

NOTE: I’m somewhat disappointed with the latest release of Ubuntu. On newer machines, it’s fine, but the Compiz bug with older Intel graphic cards really blows. I’m leaning towards using OpenSUSE 11 on my work system, but I keep getting URL errors on the Samba shares. I believe this is a KDE 4+ issue, so if any of you KDE geeks knows what’s up, I’d appreciate the help.

    Loyal Microsoft colony? Puah!… Ever notice how many illegal copies of Windows reside on Korean desktops?

    Ever notice how many illegal copies of Windows reside on Korean desktops?

    Copying the master? Sounds like a post-colonial Korean colony.

    Korea IS a microsoft colony, irregardless of the volume of copied versus legit software that is being used.

    everything is IExplorer.
    websites are tailored to it. You’ll get errors now and then if you used opera, google, safari, or a netscape progeny.

    i’m not no computer geek, but I foresee less and less justification for buying a computer bundle with microsoft stuff on it, especially stripped down versions of office with it.

    there is competition from open office, google internet based office software, etc.

    Korea IS a microsoft loyal subject.

    if some smart guy, (not dda, who isn’t smart enough), created a bug that hit only IE, it’s very possible all the major websites in Korea will not be functional.

    How do you think Microsoft gained its market share in the first place?

    The only country that still considers Korea an IT powerhouse is Korea.

    It really is a shame that the government still clings to obsolete technology.

    Funny story, the Korean government sent a number of computers to a school in Africa as part of its aid program. The computers the school already had were better. In fact, school administrators were quite offended.

    Ubuntu is great on older computers…until Firefox starts to freeze up.

    I’ve been contemplating partitioning my drive and setting up a Linux OS for over a year now, but after reading your above comment in italics, I have given up on the idea and decided to buy a mac instead.
    Seriously man WTF? compiz, openSUSE 11, smaba shares and KDE 4+
    Make your life simpler and embrace active X.
    You knows you wants to.

    I am very disappointed that nobody has yet come along to insert the much-needed smug Mac user commentary.

    But I must say, the new MacBook is really something else. It’s solid, baby ;) Now if only I could say the same for the Windows partition I will have to run on it to function in Korea Inc..
