Default Re: Windows Vista

dude 1234,

Red hat is good for a newbee, I like gentoo the best. You also have, knoppix(live), Ubuntu, slackware which is good but an oldie, Debian GNU just to name a few. But there are all sort of distros out there to choose from. I say goto the book store and grab a linux book. the best part no spyware or virus can affect your system with unix/linux its just the fact that everything has to installed by the user. unless you gave someone else permission to you files. theres only been one virus written for linux, but you have to install it to get it.

DT:Custom intel Pent. D 802 2.66 oc to 3.06, asus P5N32-E SLI Plus, 1gb G-Skill DDR2 677, Geforce 7600GToc 256, seagate barracuda 7200.8 sata 250g, XP Pro (custom dt skin) and etc...
LT:Gateway M680XL w/1.8ghz centrino (my workhorse)

Cool, another user who runs gentoo. \o/

And Aero simply will not run on that card john123. You basically have a more memory intensive copy of XP now.

The best argument against evolution are creationists themselves. They prove that life is devolving rather than evolving.
