    I found a free penguin costume

    I suppose there is a first time for everything , after tightening my windows registry I found new motivation to see what Linux could be all about. I had actually wanted to try Fedora in the past after reading positive remarks about it.

    I suppose it's sort of skipping some of the rougher times unix / linux have had, but this is cooler than I thought it would be; Especially for a free O/S

    I've just been trying to figure out how to get my routing tables right now. I remember this stuff being important in my H/s networking course, but we used to just play lan games all day instead of learn back then

    "Aw Cool"

    And if you're not happy with Fedora there are a couple of more distros definitely worth a try.

    The advantage with Fedora is that you have RedHat backing them up, but I would also recommend Ubuntu if you're still not certain.

    If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, it's always nice to see another person find the light

    Cool.

    I'm kind of distrohopping myself now. Might go for Ubuntu 8.10 when it gets released later this month.

    ... aaaand the release candidate for 8.10 is out. Currently running it on my laptop, works very well. (8.04 worked as well, though)

    Nothing I can complain about so far, except that I can feel the need for a SSD

    Don't know about that really... Running Vista with the swap file on my IRAM, works quite neatly. Not like running the entire OS on it, but still pretty nice.

    I played with it a while, and have been looking at some other options in that area, I might play with the web hosting idea again. Lately I've been spending my time reading a book on OpenGL

    Kubuntu is probably the worst KDE distribution out there. I hear openSUSE is supposed to be "the" KDE distribution at the moment

    Actually the latest flavor of Kubuntu is quite nice, but still far worse than Ubuntu or other KDE distributions.
