I still don't see how laptops have any correlation with "noob-ness" in any way.

Sorry, i meant the combination of all those points. Also, the severe difference of hardware prestations in between laptops and desktops of the same price class (mostly due to having to fit the components in, and cooling them down) is a factor.

@uH: Very correct.

I also use a laptop, multiple OSs though. But I boot into Vista the most. I suppose I am just a n00b though, a pet of Microsoft :roll:

We're all pets of microsoft, which is the sad thing. Sure, we might also use linux or macs, but we still are dependant of windows.

And if anyone else here says they arnt dependant of windows, you're lying. After all, this is the paint".NET" forums.

Because I use a .NET Application on Vista doesnt make me a pet of Microsoft. In fact, many features of Vista are disabled by personal preference. UAC is gone, Aero is rarely used, and I absolutely cannot wait for Cairo to be released. I dislike Microsoft, and I refuse to be enslaved as a pet by them.

I dislike windows too, but I am forced to use it. Too many of my programs require windows to run. Until the day some crazy linux user burns down Microsoft HQ and frees us all, windows is my main OS.

And I dont have enough room on my hard drive to install linux... :(

Ever heard of Pendrive Linux? You can install many popular Linux distros onto a spare thumbdrive.

lol I like that image.

Mr Frojo I use Fedora Linux and I have Wine installed which lets me run Windows apps. It can even run the .NET Framework.

PdN work on it? I'm pretty sure Wine isn't 100% working with .NET.

Heh. Morgan Webb from G4tv has a rant about Second Life- in which she basically says that the fad is pretty much over- apparently, it hit its peak about two years ago or so, and nowadays, the average user logs on for "about twelve minutes...a month." :-P So... It's mostly hype.
