    Re: linux

    Or better yet why not do a duel boot if you are enjoying Linux. It's very easy to do with the distros I've tried and then you can have the best of both worlds.
    Right now I find my time split about 50/50 and at times I have to look at the desktop to remember which OS I'm in.

    indeed Ubuntu 7.10 runs flawless for me still need to use windows for my gaming needs tho. I haven't had any driver quirks lately everything just works. Drivers tho usually is why folks give up on Linux sometimes they can be awkward to install dual boot is the way to go until you get the hang of things. BroGC dont give up so easy hang in there at least give it a try before throwing in the towel

    agreed, drivers "can" be a p.i.t.a. sometimes, however not to worry . I had to use the foo drivers for my HP LJ 1020, but it works fine on Ubuntu now. It was actually more the USB connection than the printer itself.

    Re: linux

    I might just give it a go later on , Ubuntu is awesome . i am real tempted with the 64 bit or loading the 32 bit and seeing what a cheep X2 AMD CPU would do !
    Right now I am busy with my new box , a amd 6400+ system . dought that would duel boot though as linux probaly would card for my XFI soundcard

    say is the old sound blaster live 5.1 digital supported in linux ?

    Re: linux

    got to get back into linux more,,sort of slacked off a bit...but its cool that you don,t have to pay big bucks for an operating sytem... i can have a fully running suse system,,,takes a bit of work...but can do everything mostly that windows does.

    geekkyyy, if it's been awhile I think you'll be surprised at what some of the newly released distros are doing. Should take a look.
