Default Just ditched windows today...

YAY!!! I intalled Linux and it is awsome! They put in what windows left out. I'm thinking of using the 30gb of free space on my hdd to install windows on, so i will have to duel boot machine. If you haven't tried linux yet you should download a live cd and give it a test run! Ubuntu Linux is one of the easiest to use i strongly recommend it.

SLIPKNOTN21: what the fook were you doing? Chances are you installed your livecd (knoppix) over your Windows partition. You probably only had one partition. :-\

I've given up on Linux as far as my laptop goes. Two separate distros have corrupted themselves after just a couple of days of use, through no fault of my own.

Linux + laptop = disaster, is the impression I get. Fine for desktop or server though.
