So it only too a week or so to finish this but it is finally done.

I am using Gentoo 64 bit with Xfce as my window manager. It also took some time to get my windows games to run through wine. But alas perseverance has show its fruits! I CAN FINALLY GET RID OF WINDOWS!!!!!!

Life would be so much easier if we only had the source code.

If brute force doesn't solve your problems, then you aren't using enough.

Seriously? A 2560 x 1024 dual monitor image hosted on a slow-as-hell server posted on a forum where it's going to have extra space on the sides requiring even higher resolution to display?

Do you really think the people reading the forum have 3000+ pixel wide screen resolutions with their browsers maximized to see this?

Dear GrumpySteen

Sorry hope this is better for you.

P.S. I choose to host all my images for the fact that they are not just out there on the internet. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

I, for one, welcome our windowless overlords...

Seriously, no windows is good windows. Congrats on that... now if I could just get my workplace to do the same...

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Heh....good thing my dual screen setup is wider than the image...though it still hasn't finished loading yet...sheesh.

Still, going Windows-free is good. [Smile]

I'm not surprised it took a week to get Gentoo installed, though. [Wink]
