in 17 more days..

Anyway, the coolest thing they've done is added that cool windows-based installer. That's awesome for people who just wanna mess with Linux. Second is the new version of XORG and the new app that lets you adjust the res of the second monitor. Great for showing stuff to multiple people. Third is the fact tht there'll probably be a lot of bug fixes in it. I can't wait to run it on Floyd.

Hmmn. That sounds real familiar. Windows implemented that in like, 1997.

Hmm sounds like I may switch back to Ubuntu, I tried SuSe and didn't like it that much, though some of the games were pretty cool.

Honestly, there are a ton of new and obvious features that I've gotten so used to using that I can't tell you what they are.

Obviously you didn't read that post I made a while back detailing this, but I have two Dells, both exactly alike. Optiplex GX100, 600MHz Celerons, 128MB RAM, Intel 810 graphics. One system is the most reliable computer I've ever owned in my life. The other is a total, 100 percent pure peice of chicken crap that I've had problems with since the day I got it. Harry's the good one with 2000, Floyd's the sucky one with Linux. Both have ran Ubuntu and both have ran Windows 2000, at one point I had two 5GB partitions on Harry, one with Ubuntu the other with 2000, until I decided to go completely Ubuntu. Then I installed FreeBSD, then back to 2000. Long story short, this computer has ran over 15 Operating systems.
