    What distro are you running?

    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...

    Anyone here successful with OSx86 snow leopard?

    I don't think Human Resources will debate you on the legality on an act such as this, they will say Thank You and send the next person in please. :laugh: Talk is cheap, so is the written word, now a proto-type or demo is worth more than both, so what your doing better be legal. :laugh:

    Open Office and Fedora 13

    Yes I had problems with my samba server on Fedora. Clear one day, blocked the next. I only had fedora for a week, but my daughter has been using it for a long time now without issue.

    Open Office and Fedora 13

    A little over a year ago, I had very VERY VERY slow internet on Linux/BSD while the one Windows machine we have had fast internet. :confused: Long story short... My ISP gives 3 addresses for DNS and one of them was not there (offline). (a year later and it's still not there) Initially I made...

    HTML5 vs. Flash

    Adobe FLASH was very important and I feel it was an arrogant business decision to not put the resources needed into porting FLASH to BSD, because there are not that many users (or enough to matter). It has been requested for years. Similar to a big important cable company not running...

    HTML5 vs. Flash

    The demise of FLASH is long overdue, but it has nothing to do with BSD. Adobe was arrogant to ignore BSD when porting the the FLASH player.

    Have an 80gb IDE Drive and want to install Linux

    Of course not, but with Ubuntu and many distros, you don't HAVE to manually partition like you do with slackware. It seems as though, every person that asks about Linux (no matter what their situation) gets the same canned "Ubuntu" answer. It's noob friendly, yes, but also a resource hog...

    HTML5 vs. Flash

    Adobe FLASH is old news and so is any proprietary format, used on the web, in this day and age. Open up or the market will use something else. Adobe was arrogant to keep FLASH closed as long as they did and not port it the BSD platform. The demise of FLASH is lonnngggg overdue. HTML5...

    Have an 80gb IDE Drive and want to install Linux

    Yes, Ubuntu is noob friendly... but i3uu is a soon-to-be computer science major with specific partitioning requirements, so I would suggest a distro which allows manual partitioning such as... you guessed it... Slackware In addition Slackware is the most "unix like" Linux distro...

    Difference between freebsd and open bsd? And how to install it?

    PF should be able to do what you ask and run on either FreeBSD or OpenBSD which is it's native platform. I'm not currently doing anything like that, so I'm not of much help... sorry :o

    Virus's Issues, Help!

    When you get tired of fighting viruses... There's always Linux, I'm just sayin'

    Anyone here successful with OSx86 snow leopard?

    Generally speaking, I would think twice before putting illegal acts on your resume, ;) but then again, I have no idea where/who your applying to :cool:

    Great to have another Linux guy in the mix!! :D

    Need help with virus

    The communities and forums are very good for some distros and someone like you probably wouldn't need much support. ;) Easy Rhino is a guru in the Linux forum right here. If nothing else, it's good there is an alternative out there. :)

    Need help with virus

    Well... Better advice is to run Linux :D (just kidding... well. sort of, never had a virus, no anti-virus needed and it's free) If your going to re-install anyway, why not try Linux? Many who are sick of getting viruses and having to upgrade every so often try Linux. Here is a good place to...

    Fedora 13 (Goddard) Officially out!!

    I am not a good judge of user friendly :o (they all seem friendly, except a particular few) NOTE: The Fedora core is in Ports and used to supply all the needed Linux libraries for Linux compatibility mode in OpenBSD. (some feel that Fedora is a standard)

    Fedora 13 (Goddard) Officially out!!

    very similar Fedora is just as n00b friendly as Ubuntu. I'd say OpenSUSE and Mandriva are also just as n00b friendly. Not sure why Ubuntu owns the lion's share of the Linux market? marketing maybe??

    Anyone here successful with OSx86 snow leopard?

    Own the disk, but license the software... cut me a break Just another reason to go with Linux or BSD With BSD, own it, clone it, sell it, jump up and down and shit on it... it's yours!!! oh and it's free :D

    Fedora 13 (Goddard) Officially out!!

    Yes SELinux is a pain in the arse for those of us who run various servers/services. You set those extra bits and it works for a while then no connection or server can't be seen. :mad: It's just something else we have to learn/get used to :laugh: It works great for the average desktop...

    Awesome!! They're pulling out all the stops... They want to be #1 I always did like Fedora... My oldest daughter in college uses it on her laptop.

    Least resource intensive distro?

    I'll second that... Puppy is awesome, I always have a Puppy CD around. My daughter was using TeenPup for a while

    My OpenBSD experience:

    A good community is important for a distro to grow and Ubuntu is probably the largest community. I used to listen to LUG Radio and now A Shot of Jaq oggcasts w/ Jono Bacon (Ubuntu Community Manager). Arch is a very good system, at one time I was running Arch w/ JWM and just a few xfce and...
