  1. I'm not a Solaris guy but I'll give you a few things to look at, http://www.sun.drydog.com/faq/9.html also look here http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/features/artic...ot_solaris.html
  2. Check these out http://www.linuxcertified.com/linux_laptops.html, you could also go with (IBM)Lenovo.
  3. If they add an installer, what will all the kiddies do who think they're leet because of the old way to install. By the way whats with them being behind the times. They aren't using KDE 3.5 yet, and are still using the old version of John the Ripper and gcc4 isn't even available, they take forever to test their packages. I never understood the appeal of gentoo.
  4. I'm only 23 and even I grew up watching that show, he was hilarious may he R.I.P

    Virus Outbreak

    I love opening attachments from suspicious emails, especially the obvious ones that I know are viruses.
  6. The 8 years I used linux and the 4 i've been using FreeBSD I've never used Gnome, I found it ugly as hell. I personally like the eye candy of KDE, it's functionality is great too. Even though I still use the CLI for most everything.
  7. Here's what the father of linux has to say about Gnome. "I don't use GNOME, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do," "I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE."~Linus Torvalds "Often your 'fixes' are actually removing capabilities that you had, because they were 'too confusing to the user'," "GNOME seems to be developed by interface Nazis, where consistently the excuse for not doing something is not 'it's too complicated to do', but 'it would confuse users'."~Torvalds
  8. I just though this one was kind of cool.
  9. It's just to bad Gnome doesn't look like these mockups http://desplesdadotcom.nfshost.com/?p=75, if it did I'd totally use it.
  10. I little behind the times aren't you hitest? Upgrade to 3.5 you'll like it even more trust me. Heh-heh, I suppose, but, if it ain't broke, why fix it? What are some of the things that you like in 3.5, Carnevil? Are there huge changes in 3.5? Here's the new features for 3.5 http://www.kde.org/announcements/visualguide-3.5.php. Alot of the changes aren't huge, I've noticed a significant speed increase between 3.4 and 3.5. I do like that, I also like that konqueror now has ad-block, superkaramba is also now part of the base install. 3.5 is really just a small release with a few additional nice features, kind of a stepping stone towards 4.0, which is going to be huge.
  11. I little behind the times aren't you hitest? Upgrade to 3.5 you'll like it even more trust me.
  12. Finally KDE3.5 got commited to ports, the speed increase is dramatic. Also decided to try a new icon set and superkaramba.
  13. Even though you're talking about linux, I'm going to have to say BSD's Ports,Pkgsrc and Pkg_add are the best package managers.
  14. This is one of the best places for asking linux questions.
  15. Here's my Freebsd6 Stable and my soon to be new kernel conf.
  16. Question for everybody, is there some unwritten rule that you have to spend Christmas with family? I ask because my buddy wants me to come down to his place in KY for a while, and my mom got rather upset when I told her I wasn't going to be their for Christmas.
  17. Yeah Hitest it's RPM based *gag* here's a link to ark http://www.arklinux.org/.
  18. How dare you run Gnome Hitest, don't you know the father of Linux hates gnome. He said it was created my interface nazi's.
  19. Well with abysmal ratings the network has to do something to stay a float. But what they're doing is kind of like putting a bandaid on a gushing chest wound. It's not going to help no matter how they try to say money or change the channel.
  20. Excellent! I'm happy you're starting to get into Linux! Take your time and read a lot on the Internet. When you do go for it and need help please come here and post your questions. I'm proud to say that BT has the smartest Linux experts that I've ever had the pleasure to know. These guys really know their stuff. Welcome to Linux. Yeah BT has some of the best Linux people, they're actually decent people too. I use Freebsd and I don't get crap like this said to me "Oh please. The problem with FreeBSD is the same problem that the Amiga and BE OS ran into which is that their userbases are comprised mostly of self-rightous *JACKASSES*". I can give alot more quotes like this from the linux base, but I won't hold the ramblings of a bunch of 15 year olds against all linux users. Granted it's quotes like this that drove me away from the linux community, everytime I saw any article praising any of the BSD's especially freebsd, I always saw linux users talking crap. It's like they can't control themselves or they feel threatened some how the the BSD's. Enough of my ramblings though, I'll tell you this, just stick with BT linux users and you'll be all right and won't run into the idiocy, oh and stay far far away from Gentoo linux trust me.
  21. We just picked up 7" of snow here in Tecumseh MI, it's 17 degrees but it feel likes 3 degrees according to the weather man. Which brings up a question, if it feels like 3 degrees then why not just say it's 3 degrees?
  22. If you need free iso burning software http://www.magiciso.com/index.htm, and if you need to look for linux images to download, http://distrowatch.com/ is a good place to get any linux iso.
