No those are even more fucked up things the p.o.s. called Vista does.
When I assign a setting to the NIC, that’s the setting of the NIC I want. When I want it to change, I will tell it to.
If the OS won’t keep it that way the OS is no fucking good. I don’t give a shit why it does what it does, I didn’t tell it to do that.
I want my NIC to be 172.16.2.99, and I don’t give a flying fuck if the the other end of the cable is in a computer, a hub, a router or up Bill Gate’s ass. I don’t want to have to pick a new IP and give it 172.16.2.98 if it plugs into a hub, and 99 if it plugs in direct. That’s total bullshit.
No windows requiring my permission
No “discovering” shit without me asking it to
JUST FUCKING DO WHAT IT’S TOLD.
Or am I to assume I can set something up on the repair desk, carry it to the jobsite and have to completely reconfigure it as soon as it plugs into the network, which seems to be the case.
Fuck Vista! Ubuntu with Beryl is 1,000 times better.
