oh..... so even lose so what.....you seem like very hate open source software??

i don't think you bought Photoshop or office..

you must be download using torrent from the net or get cdkey or keygen...
For your kind information, I do not really hate open sourced applications or Operating Systems.

However, I cannot say the same for those Zeolots who seems to consists mainly of Linux users.

Human beings should never be judged by what OS they uses. It's a free world.

Also, due to the reason of being 'free' and open-sourced, some apps pales in comparison by those closed-source ones; eg Utorrent as one very good example?

Free alternatives doesn't mean they are bad, but mainly lack of the commitment to create something that surpasses it's 'original' form.

For example, why not create a 'office' suit that can edit pictures like 'gimp' too?

That will give users a lot of flexibility even though it will complicate the cord.

I have forgotten how many times when I'm using the 'photo editor' in the office suit, being limited by what the program offers. However, if we can combine both together with one easy click, it's still a start.

The morale here is "Innovate, not imitate".

This not only brings a fresh breath and interest into the open sourced community, but will bring along talents that are sorely needed, especially the graphics division to work in new projects.

After working with so many non-it savvy colleagues, all they want is the 'ease of use' from the computer without delving deep into the innards of computer, or the archaic commands that requires memorization of them.

That is at the least priority of their minds because they have other things in work that they need to remember.

One need to re-examine the success story of other working business working model and why the adaptation of it by the masses.

Perhaps their success is based on 'human technology' and by human technology, is by taking into consideration of human thinking, ease of use and appeal factor.

One very good example of this would be the iPod which has sold millions and steadily gathering more each day.

Why iPod? It's beautiful outlook and it's ease of use?

As long as one is stubborn, moving forward will be not be easy.

Hi KouAnKyuuKa,

Is he still persisting his usual ways after his reply that he won't bother the vista forum users?

I'll be away overseas for over a week again, so apologies in advance for the limited and late replies.

Regards,
Mind clarifying that if Dr Vijay is making this up?

I ban my own self out of vista forum on my own account.
The word "reply" means my own reply post in vista forum, and not reply to Dr.Vijay.
Pls read carefully thanks.
Since I said it myself, I follow it.
After that post, I no longer post in vista forum, I won't go back on my own words. Be assured.
I second time said that, no mods send me warnings and I leave that forum on my own account, if not you ask hwz check my logs, and I'm clean.

Let me clarify myself, I'm not waging war or bringing flame baits into your camp.

I maybe too straight-forward by saying what is not needed. I apologize.

If I really wanted open-sourced to be stagnant, I wouldn't have said what I have said so far.

Again, I apologize for saying what is not needed and not appreciated.

KouAnKyuuKa & BaLto... peace please!

Tolerance doesn't mean agreeing with each other, rather not descending into the typical flame wars existing in CAL, etc.

I have used closed source & open source, paid & "free" softwares. One thing's for certain, in the rural areas, my trusty Linux LiveCD boots up those ancient PCs for me to be productive!

Anyways, I am Wendy & How do you do?

ov2rey, if you have read closely on the above post, it's a misinterpretation of word.
Perhaps I didn't state it clearly in my last reply there. Dr.Vijay. is referring to my post.
http://forums.hardwarezone.com/showp...1&postcount=20
And due to misinterpretation, it is thought that Dr.Vijay. had sent me warning, and I have posted reply back to Dr.Vijay. which obviously is not the case.

This problem is already ended no point dragging thanks.

MiniLinux

Here's some suggestions in order of their size (as a compressed image rather than install or memory requirements). Most run on x86 hardware and are graphical.

Not Linux but worth mentioning
(<2Mb?) Contiki
(<2Mb) QNX Floppy demo
(<2Mb) KolibriOS (based on MenuetOS) a GUI OS
(~4Mb) Blueflops - 2 floppy graphical web browser
(~11Mb) FreeDOS + OpenGEM - DOS compatible GUI
(~23Mb) ReactOS - Windows compatible but still in alpha
(~30Mb) KolibriOS CD version (based on MenuetOS) a GUI OS

Under 50Mb
Distros under 50Mb fit onto a MiniCD.

(~3Mb) Mungkie - (aka 2diskXwin)
(12Mb) Grey Cat Linux - Slackware based with IceWM
(<15Mb) SliTaz with JWM
(<50Mb) DamnSmallLinux - based on Knoppix, but with Fluxbox
(44Mb) Jinx - with Opera 9, Flash, Textmaker and Planmaker.
(<50Mb) Austrumi - A business card size bootable live CD Linux distribution based on Slackware.
(<50Mb) MeanPup -A live distro based on Puppy
(<50Mb) Mitrax -A live distro based on Slackware
(<50Mb) Luit - XFCE and ROXFile

Under 128Mb

(<100Mb) NimbleX sub100 - Slackware based with KDE
(<100Mb) Puppy Linux - live with IceWM (see also eBoxPup, IcePup, LitePup, MiniPup, PizzaPup, SafePup and XPuppyPro)
(84Mb) DamnSmallLinux-Not - distro using Knoppix hardware recognition with Abiword and Gnumeric.
(<128Mb) DeLi - Desktop Light
(<128Mb) SLAX Popcorn Edition- A smaller version of SLAX with Xfce
(<128Mb) FeatherLinux - Knoppix based distro with Fluxbox

Under 256Mb

(177Mb) TinyMe - based on pcLinuxOS, but with Openbox
(182Mb) Kurumin 6 Light - Knoppix based, with KDE
(~200Mb) PUD - based on Ubuntu
(~200Mb) Slax - Distro based on Slackware using KDE
(223Mb) TinyFlux - based on TinyMe, with Fluxbox
(230Mb) Kanotix CpxMini, Kanotix, but with Fluxbox
(241Mb) Wolvix Cub
(<250Mb) Featherweight- based on Feather Linux, but with KDE
(<256Mb) Flash Linux- Gentoo-based, initially designed to run off of a 256Mb USB key.

Under 700Mb
Distros under 700Mb fit onto most CD-Rs. These should still run in 128Mb RAM on a Pentium III level machine.

(278Mb) AliXe - Slax based with Xfce
(300Mb) Fluxbuntu - Ubuntu 7.10 based with Fluxbox
(410Mb) AntiX - MEPIS based with Fluxbox
(551Mb) Kanotix Lite with KDE
(614Mb) SaxenOS 1 - with EDE
(626Mb) MEPISLite - MEPIS based with KDE
(662Mb) eLive - Debian based with Enlightenment
(699Mb) SAM - A LiveCD based on PCLinuxOS, but with Xfce.
