Wow!

See people... there is hope for this world, if even a (former) OS bigot can openly confess such.

Magnificent Valour Dr Cyclops!

Sadly, I am too lazy to try a bit of Linux's greatness. I just plod along on a WinME powered machine, waiting to get the power of Linux on my computer.

It will happen.... I swear it!

I agree, and it was forgotten. Still is.

Good luck in Linux.

I'm taking another look at Linux myself; specifically Yellow Dog Linux for PPC.

what, no freebsd?

Linux is a good begining but don't stagnate and stay with mandrake or corel linux or whatever it is you're using.....move to freebsd.....you shall see the console in all its glory and it shall set you free.....
but hey, linux is a pretty good start.....magnificent valour as they say....

Hey, if you're going to go to *BSD, you might as well go for the glitz and glamour of Mac OS X.
