No need to sneer. It gives non-Microsoft users a bad name. It's bad for our image.Joe Schmoe wrote:I agree with your point #1. Only Windows Weenies assume they need a GUI all the time, every time. On demand is what sensible people want.
I agree and I can't help feeling a few people involved with RPi have a very old fashioned attitude to end users, which is odd given the effort that's been put in to promoting RPi to end users (here in the UK anyway). Lets try not to slip back 15 years to the days of telling Windows users they should be using Linux, deliberately making Linux dist's inaccessible to them, then sneering at them for not moving to Linux!? Oh and before anyone asks, no I'm not a Windows user and I've been very happy indeed to never have to use Windows again for some years now, it's one of the few upsides to being too chronically ill to work.Larry_Adlard wrote:No need to sneer.

Fantastic! This sounds like something I'm trying to accomplish, that is I'm trying to automatically log in and launch the GUI. If you could share how you did this I'd greatly appreciate it!hawkyhawk14 wrote:Mine can be set to do this. Just a quick change of my configuration file and it will auto start, log me in and load XFCE and be ready to use and boots in about 1:20 seconds
