        Using KDE 3.2 with my slax cd

        http://slax.linux-live.org it fits on a nice mini-cd and comes with KDE 3.2 and KOffice and the usual stuff.

        http://slax.linux-live.org/screenshots.php for screenshots, ideal for someone not wanting to jump in too deep.

          Yup, I installed Gentoo over the weekend.

          It DOES take a long time to install, and you need a copy of the install instructions on hand as there are quite a few steps (I started from pentium4-stage3)

          Anyway, once it's installs its worth all the effort. Using the 2.6.3 gentoo-dev-sources, the system is unbelievably fast and responsive. Any windows proggies that haven't been ported over to linux run similarly fast for me under wine.

            Ok, I was GOING to upgrade KDE, but I couldn't even figure THAT out :-\

            Maybe I should start all over with Gentoo?

              SCO has been winning their lawsuits.

              So in your opinion, would this be faster than a installation of Windows on the same PC?

                From what I heard, the judge has asked SCO to provide specific evidence to support their claim.

                All the payouts received by SCO so far have been from companies in anticipation of an SCO win, not because they have been ordered to do so by a court.

                I could be wrong, but that is my understanding of the current situation.

                  GAIM is primarily a Linux client I believe, but it is ported to Windows. I'm using it right now in Knoppix.

                      Knoppix is the easiest to install. I am using it to download every other distro I feel like installing.

                        From my understanding, they have won against everyone they have filed lawsuits against so far. The lawsuit against IBM is going to take a while through.

                        If I had the rights to an operating system and the whole world gained the ability to get the source code for free, I'd want to charge licensing fees. So, I think SCO's problem with showing the code to the public is that it will be removed from newer versions while people will still be able to access it freely and SCO will get brushed aside even through they deserve the ability to charge licensing fees to the Linux community for irreversible damages.

                          Use Knoppix STD, not Slax.

                              Well, right now I'm in Fedora Core. XMMS doesn't feel like working, neither is my sound though... bah.
