PC/OS: Insert CD, use desktop

"He wasn't writing to you people..he was writing to me. What do I care about kerrel issues? .. I WANT TO POINT AND CLICK!!!!!! I am not ever going to be an elitist about Linux. I will be happy to use it if it's easy enough. .."

mmmmk. If you are trying Linux for those things, then Linux is NOT for you! Linux is about control over your system and freedom, not "I WANT TO POINT AND CLICK!!!!!!". The distro for you my friend, is called Windows, and all you need to do to have it is give away your freedom, your brain, and your wallet, to Microsoft.

Just because an author writes a review like this one and gets flamed for it does not mean the people doing the flaming are elitist or geeks. Perhaps we are English majors, or Rocket Scientists, or something simple like that? I admit my post was a bit over the top but I think its warrented given the reviewers abject oversight of what this "distro" really is. It is - in fact - a *buntu clone that has been very slightly tweaked. It is nothing more than that and the reviewer should have pointed out the things that set this thing apart from *buntu if he can (which he can not because PC/OS = Ubuntu).
