    Come on...half the fun with linux is that you never have to sit without anything to do

    So get off your lazy *beeeeep* and start installing Wine/WineX

    Downloaded Redhat 8.1

    Great OS, but i don't think i'd ever consider it as a primary OS, i've become too used to windows, for some stupid reason

    Once i've got new pc, i'll re-install linux on this one, and have a fiddle on there. Redhat seemed a nice OS, loads of dodgy in-built games!

    I once had Redhat too..
    Unfortunately my soundcard did not go with the drivers. It was easier to install SuSE than new drivers

    I threw Windows out the... heh, window last summer in favour of Gentoo Linux. All three of my platforms runs happily with Gentoo now. Except for my laptop wich I have to dualboot with since some of the work we do at the university requires Windows. However, when it comes to the home desktop, I'll never go back to Windows again... ever.

    Gawd it feels good!!

    Well, overclockers aren't that successful in using Linux since most UNIX operating systems are very sensitive to overclocking. Most users compile their own source code and such operations demands a lot from the processor making it very vulnerable to miscalculations and so on. My old T-bird 1 GHz could never ever compile even the smallest application due to the excessive overclocking it have endured during the years, much less run a stable system.

    I think the phrase you were looking for was:
    "Oh great! Another excuse not to install Linux! Yay! I'm in the clear a while longer!"
