Windows Eliminated

04 Jun

I was reading about Meteorjs in a book when I came upon the piece of text shown above (image). Just note that this book explains how to install it in Mac and Linux but not in Windows. Well, I am happy about it. The age has gone when big corporations like Microsoft wanted to eliminate free software and a new age has dawned where free software world want to eliminate off proprietary software.

Windows sucks, especially Windows 8 when it comes for development. I was forced to use Windows 8 at a location and people said it was safer, which shocked me, any way I gave a try, but found that most software (especially from the free world) won’t simply get installed on it!  Even installation of Vagrant (a portable development tool)  failed for some reason.

I hope there will be no more releases of Windows any more. Sometimes it truly destroys things. I wonder how can companies that pioneer the use of Windows can really develop on free software platforms?
