There are trillions of tasks Linux can't do.
Obviously I'm one of those who doesn't need any of these, because I
usually feel the opposite, but don't use windows.
I suppose if you have a lot of money then applications written and sold
for windows can do anything as well?
Good to know anyway.
Thanks for that information.
I don't think there are trillions, but two examples are for real:
AutoCAD and WordPerfect. I know there are cad programs
for Linux, but _all_ cad programs are learning-intensive, so
if you know one, then you surely do not want to learn another.
The various descendents of StarOffice--Symphony, OO, and LO
--simply cannot equal WP, and even MS Office does not have all
of WP's capability. I'm sure there are other examples.
BTW, I'm not defending Windows--I have Win7, and I hate the
damned thing! But I use it when I must.
