[QUOTE=Zathros;2410344]What’s a “Distro”? Imagine having to learn a whole new language. Forget it. I know everyone hates M$ but when you think about it, for the price of the software and considering you can spend $2000 on a decent CAD program, my point is that some of the programs should be able to run on a computer without using an O.S. I use Rhino3d, a great CAD Modeling program, with all the bells and whistles Rhino could easily run up to $3000 with all the plug-ins. For that price, it should be able to run on a computer that is blank. Stick in the DVD and run, no OS except what came with the program. That would be something. A couple of button pushes to get to the program you want which is completely separated from every other program on your computer. Bottom line, for the $100 bucks you spend on a program that ties it all together, it really isn’t all that much.
I don’t think that M$ will make everyone happy till they can masturbate you with the click of a mouse button.[/QUOTE]
