So tired of cleaning up after Windows

Well I can admit, Windows is more tolerable since Windows XP came around. Though I'm kind of sick and tired of having to scan for viruses every day with multiple viruse scanners/spyware scanners. And then having to comb the registry every time those remove stuff with a cleaner. And then sometimes having to login into safe mode just to remove certain more pesky viruses/spyware. Some of them I have to read page after page of information to find the root of the problem. And in rare cases I have to go into the registry and weed out the files by hand (which I dont like to do anymore cause it can really mess things up). It's very annoying and I feel like I'm taking care of a wilful kitten. And it's one messy wilful kitten. Though that's just the tip of the iceberg. A lot of the chores I have to do to keep my computer/stable and crash free Windows should be doing by itself. Atleast the combing the registry bit. I mean come on now. It's bloatey as it is. Can't they automate certain things by defualt that are so mundane a computer can do it? I dont really understand a lot of the stuff involved in it. Though anyways I thought Id express my frustation. If Macs didnt suck and wernt expensive, Id move over to that. Id love to convert to Linux, though there are a lot of things I wont be able to do even though pretty much all the software I use on my computer is free source software. I shunned all of microsoft's software except for their OS and MSN. And MSN is so annoying. there's stupid things it does that seem to be in there on purpose to annoy you. Version after version (droped messages, puting in silly error messages were there are no error at all and some more I can't remember off the top of my head but happen sometimes)

    • I've given it a lot of thought. I just wanted to experiment with a distribution on a old computer before I dive in installing it on some new parts. I plan to use Slackware on this old pentium 120 I have. It's just floppies are hard to come by so I'm not too sure how I am going to get this thing to recognise it has a cd-rom on it. All the floppies I have are corrupt and this computer we have has no floppy drive.
  • ditto, I've been using linux exclusivly for about 8 years now. grab a live CD and see if you can live with it for a week or so. You might be surprised.
  • I must say that I have had no issues since I've started using NOD32.
