Well, I did it once, after years of Linux (registered with the Linux Counter on August 26, 1996). Then I went back to… Ubuntu Jaunty, then I switched to CentOS 5.3 and have built my own extra repository Odiecolon.repo, only to end in Xubuntu Karmic, now being on Ubuntu Karmic.

Pauvre petit Beranger

Here's Beranger, back in fine form, whining that the idiots at Ubuntu can't get his M$ applications to work with Wine.

He even admits that he's paid for some of the Windows applications he has in his possession(???).

Didn't Beranger storm off to Windows 7 in a huff, swearing never to return to "Linux" a while back, or something similar?

If Beranger really thinks he needs XP, then he's probably right.

We'll just have to try to muddle along without him, somehow.

Petit? Pourquoi petit?

No, Ubuntards can't even get all the GTK+ applications work with their concoction!

When Ubuntu 9.10 was in in Beta, I've reported a GTK-induced bug in Mousepad and Leafpad -- it was fixed. Now, I'm sure that gnome-mastermind fails to behave also because of a newer GTK+.

Linuxeros, stop talking about Microsoft's bugs as long as the COMPONENTS OF THE LINUX *DESKTOP* are CONSTANTLY SCREWED!

As for the Windows apps I've paid for, you know, one still has to pay for *some* work, it's not everything like in communism!

Those applications include, but are not limited to:
-- Rybka 3 Aquarium (excellent chess program and database; works under WINE, but slower)
-- Druide Antidote RX (OK, it's multiplatform, it works with KDE3 too)
-- some CD-based dictionaries (which work under WINE, suboptimally)

OK, mea culpa to have returned to a Linux DESKTOP for a while.

The major flaw of Windows 7 is its price, not bugs, nor system requirements. I have friends who have bought a boxed Windows 7 and gained their peace of mind with Windows 7 -- truly. Because it works.
