Microsoft Teaches You How To Uninstall Linux

Wednesday 3 August 2005 @ 1:23 pm

LoL …. Saw something really funny in Microsoft website. It amused me. :))

There is an article posted in the Help & Support Center of Microsoft website. It is posted long time ago and the last review was on March 14, 2002. The article is about “How to Remove Linux and Install Windows XP” !!

This article explains how to remove the Linux operating system from your computer and install Windows XP. This article assumes that Linux is already installed on your computer’s hard disk, that Linux native and Linux swap partitions are in use (which are incompatible with Windows XP), and that there is no free space left on the hard disk.

After looking at it, some thoughts came into my mind. Who will actually uninstall a Linux then install a Microsoft Windows? Most of the Linux users will not turn back to Windows after switching, right? Besides, if one knows how to use Linux, it’s almost certain he/she knows how to uninstall it and install a less complicated OS, isn’t it? :D

Anyway, maybe the article might help someone who accidentally install Linux and wish to switch back to Windows.

Something amused me even more was this :

NOTE: Windows XP and Linux can coexist on the same computer. For additional information, refer to your Linux documentation.

I know the article mentioned “there is no free space left on the hard disk”, but the above statement really made me laugh. :))

    Oh, but did you need tutorial like what Microsoft provides? Just curious to know. Hehhehe …. :D

    er.. tutorial not needed. I formatted it and installed Win 98. I’m happy with Windows. Use Linux only when needed (servers, etc)

    Even with servers.. we got Pasar Malam versions of WinServer2003.. heh.

    If you started to learn Linux by using RedHat, it’s quite tough I guess.

    I’m not a Linux user, but plan to learn Fedora soon, for some webhosting sakes. :)

    Yup, it is definitely for user who is accidentally installing Linux on their box………. ROFL. Fedora’s rock! Okay, that also goes to most of the Linux distribution. Fedora Core is good if you plan to learn Linux, mostly all the books (Not all, I know) in the markets teaching user with the RedHat dist. which is their free dist. now is FC. Ganbate Mate!! :)

    Thanks, dude.

    In fact, I’ve consulted a few Linux users, and the conclusion is to start from Fedora. :)
