Yee-ha! Linux works!
« on: November 11, 2004, 05:12:41 pm »

I've been wanting to make the switch from Win98 to a version of Linux for some time now, but never quite had the time/patience/motivation to go through with it. Until my 98 system blew up last week, that is. A week of having no music and having to use the dorm computer lab for internet access really made the difference. :)

I got a friend to burn me an ISO of the SuSE network install disk, and let it download SuSE 9.1 all last night. Now I'm typing this in Konqueror, listening to my music, and marveling at neato things like my fuzzy system clock. Whee! Screw you, MS!  :P

And Tomlinson took up the tale and spoke of his good in life.
"O this I have read in a book," he said, "and that was told to me,
"And this I have thought that another man thought of a Prince in Muscovy."
The good souls flocked like homing doves and bade him clear the path,
And Peter twirled the jangling Keys in weariness and wrath.
"Ye have read, ye have heard, ye have thought," he said, "and the tale is yet to run:
"By the worth of the body that once ye had, give answer—what ha' ye done?"

Rock and F'n Roll, I'm getting good results on my test computer too.    So long MS, and no I won't miss you.  Burn.

We all have some scar tissue that never lets us completely forget the intent of the adventure.

<MrBurnsVoice> Excellent, another convert to communism</MrBurnsVoice>

(And YES, that was facetious, of course FOSS ain't communist..)

Welcome to the wonderful world of linux. IANAG (I am not a guru), however, do not hessitate to ask me for help. I don't run SuSE (yet - I will be doing a test of each major distro in the upcoming months), I run Gentoo. But at the heart they're the same.

I can proudly say that I have always run linux (for four years now) on my own personal machine. Excepting my vic-20 and commodore plus four I owned as a kid :D
