Haha; yey!

I'll have to get onto FX when I next see her on MSN to put it on her site for us to download again. MSDN is far too expensive for me at the moment

It is quite a bit of money (especially for a 15 yeraold...), but I worked all summer to get my subscription! haha!

Haha, most certainly is. I think FX won hers at a conference. Sounds like a good idea though; working all summer for a Subscription.

Operating Systems is $699! [eyes pop out]. That's what... 400 or so, with only like 50 Summer Holiday Days, some more after exams before A2... Its not so much when you think about it I suppose. If I work every day I have, including Saturdays not Sundays then I have to make 10 a day :P

I'll have to look around for a job! Content looks good; I've never really considered an MSDN Subscription or looked at what you get. Pro is just too expensive, and the extra is only legal versions of Visual Studio Pro... which is not hard to download at Enterprise Versions.

It would come in handy. What Package did you get?

fedora isn't actually developed by red hat, red hat sponsers the fedora project and allowed them to use red hat's last distro for the workstation red hat 9 as the base for fedora. red hat now put all their effort into developing their server software
