Watch your mouth! It doesn't matter to me that it is definitely easier, although Puppy gives it a run for it's money. I would never stoop so low as to grace the enemies broken down junk software now that I've been set free! I left "Micronazi" 3 years ago and have been using Mac up until a few months ago when I finally saw the light. I am Linux and I will proclaim it from the hilltop. Everything about 'ms' is evil. I do everything I can to rely on something else. I am determined to learn Linux to be reliant on it.
Wow I came down on you kinda hard no2thesame, huh? Nothing personal. I wrote everything with a smile. Thanks for letting me vent on you.
Well said Brock! I like your style. No offense taken.
I prefer to use Linux as well.
I have only had to format a thumb drive once, and on a tight schedule. The drive had become a 'read only' file system after being used on a Mac (I don't understand that) , and even root couldn't write to it or change permissions. (feeble excuse coming) I couldn't find a simple way to format the stick with Linux... the XP machine was there... the stick's owner was frantic... so..
But I'm back on the bandwagon now!! (especially after trying SOHO preview live CD - very nice)
And I'm awaiting eagerly your results so next time I can join with a hearty "I am Linux" as well.
BTW I use gparted on the SystemRescueCD. Never thought of it for thumb drives but I guess it would work. For mugs like me, Gparted is a nice way to prepare complex partitioning (for dual booting) before putting Vector on. (more feeble excuses) Because sometimes dual booting is the only way I can get Linux on friend's and family's hard disks.
