Debian was in frease for WAY to long the last time
And part of the problem was to much good stuff was comming out just
after they froze so they would unfreaze just long enough to include
the new software.

I've not had much problems with 6.0...  7.0 sends shivers up my spine...

Gezz... I feel sorry for AC now... (The guy at RedHat who
makes changes to the Linux Kernel and gives it back to
the community)
Some see him as below Linus on the kernel...
I guess RedHat will really hurt this standing in the community...

I liked Cowpland.. Ego and all....  Reminds me of someone I know
[looks in mirror]

I agree.. people blame Corels problems on Linux but...
Corel Draw, Word Perfict.. this is Corel..
Those titles really faded into obvivion...
Corel is dead on the Windows platform..
I'd hope other companys folowed Corels example...
(And I suspect Microsoft is conserned about that)
Corel isn't the only company suffering on the WIndows platform...

Netwinders are cool... I want one...

Yeah but then Linux would suck without source code..

Sill LFS.. so now I can build the OS from source code
and not have to deal with snapshots and other madness
(Unless I WANT to)

I know...

I want to make my own Linux system that installs from a web browser
(Waiting for the LFS destro thing to be done and use that
as the basis for my idea)

Just use that WIndows feature where it runs .exe files you click on.
Make a short .exe installer.. and go from there...

would be enough to keep it from accually "infecting" anyone]

Come see my projects and download my code. Open source all the way....
