Why this guy “Loves Linux”

Why I Love Linux

Well.  Another interesting Linux story.  (What’s funny is that there’s the MSN logo up in the corner…)

This guy’s Vista install borked his XP install (not surprisingly), and he needed to fix it.  So, he installs Linux.  All is happy, right?  Not exactly.

The distro of choice installed itself to the first part of the first drive.  This is normal, unless you tell it to go otherwise.  The problem with this is that installing this way borks the files needed to boot Windows (hence when I tell people about Ubuntu, and they’re interested in it, I tell them to reinstall Windows and repartition).

The article goes into more depth that I ever could here, but it’s still a very interesting read.

Check it out.
