    Running Ubuntu 10.04 off of the 80GB in my second computer. I boot into that sometimes just to mess around, still using Win7 as the main OS on there.

    Hi Easy Rhino,
    As you know, I switched over to Linux because of my new HDMI video card
    and needed to use the ATI Catalyst driver to get sound via the HDMI cable.

    Slackware like OpenBSD is solid as a rock, it's been on 24/7 (almost a month now)
    and my samba server has been accessible the whole time.

    The only real difference I'm finding is more processor and ram resources
    are being used and I'm sure that's due to using KDE with all that composting
    stuff enabled (my daughter likes the cube, etc...) OpenBox was pretty lean.

    Ram hasn't gone past 720 meg. and I have 2.5 gig.
    Processor (3.2 gig Pent.4) falls behind when running 3 simultaneous
    Youtube videos, but I have no past reference, as there was no Flash
    for OpenBSD (it would probably do the same).

    The log was for my experiences running OpenBSD and how it differed
    from Linux, so I haven't added to it or made a new one because people
    are familiar with Linux (most flavors). OpenBSD doesn't have the same popularity.

    Here is a screenshot... (I'm a big David Lynch fan)

    I run Ubuntu as a dual boot, however it is 6.10 so I never venture into it (on my main rig). I have a Mint version on a server, and Arch on a laptop. Mint is my favorite of the three.

    Wheres WebOS and Maemo/Meego? Technically they are so much more purely Linux than Android.

    Fedora on lappy, Mandriva on desktop and Slax on usb drive!
    Also tried ubuntu, mint and arch but I liked fedora the best:) Arch is a nice distro too, learned a lot of stuff from it.
    I even wanted to try some BSD but no luck in installing and get it work with PC BSD:( May be I'll try again, I like the concept and design philosophy of BSD.
