Nasty Habits

     Those of you that use windows will know what I'm talking about. The habitual desire to check for viruses, the registry cleaning, the junk cleaning, the un-installation of unused programs, the constant defragging, and over all finding someway to constantly make it what it was before.

     If your lucky and installed windows yourself from a CD then you didn't have to go through and spend hours deleting all the unneeded things they ship with OEMS. All for a reason and that reason is cost but I don't want those programs installed.

     So what I'm trying to say is that while I use Linux I find myself very bored. It took me awhile to come to the conclusion why Linux bores me. I don't have anything to do on it. All those things I did on windows that in the end gave me something to do I no longer need to do. I can remove programs, sure, and clean up some junk here and there but it makes no difference to performance, just disk space. There is no defragging, I can scan for viruses but I wont find any unless I'm scanning a Windows partition but still it isn't the same. I can try to speed it up by doing things I shouldn't and in the end regret it because of my lack of knowledge.

     Is Linux better because of this? I dunno, as they say humans are creatures of habit so maybe I'll go back to windows just to give me something to do...jk btw.
