Windows user encountered an error
The pro of a Linux supporter is that they are proactive on forums. Their intention to ‘suggest’ is misread as intention to help. The con of the Linux supporter is that they don’t clarify that they don’t intend to solve the problem. Not even a GOTO Linux statement is remotely useful without actually helping the user plan out the migration systematically with least downtime in day to day work. Linux users should know better how critical downtime is. Those who use at work at least. Fact is that it does take equally tremendous effort whether you keep fighting the battle on Windows ground or shift base to Linux. Neither category of ‘help’ need be discouraged. And as much as it sucks to be pushed away (figuratively) to RTFM when you are learning Linux, it’s not fair to expect a Windows user to take the same treatment. They didn’t sign up for that. Not that they can’t read..
