I've Recently Converted Answered

to Linuxism. Please, hold your applause. ;-) A handful of you may know that I've been fumbling with Linux since early in this year, tried every distro known to man (and then some) and didn't get heads or tails of it. Well, it finally clicked. I don't know how and I don't know why, but it did. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron and I plan on updating to 8.10 when it comes out on the 30th. Out of all the distros I've found, Ubuntu's the easiest, and Hardy Heron is better than any earlier version I've tried. I customized it to look how I want, and installed some of my favorite programs. It runs off of my 2gb flash drive at lightning speed, but when I upgrade to 8.10 I think I'll install it on a 4gb SDHC card. Of course, this doesn't mean that I'm a Linux leet h@x0r or anything. Linux is a journey of knowledge, and I think I've finally got off on a good start.

Wait, what OS are you running?

And on a side note, why did you go back to your old avatar? And who is it anyway?

XP :( I tried to download fedora. No joy, download was too big and failed every time. I've toyed with smaller builds, like DSL, but frankly don't have the time to hassle with it right now. I went back (as I always have been forced to when using a picture of a woman who is not horribly disfigured) because of the comments I got. I'm so sick of them. It's Sam Neil as Dr. Alan Grant.

Psh, you shouldn't change your avatar because someone makes fun of it. When people tell me that I look fat in my picture, I tell them to adjust their screen resolution.

Well, they weren't just making fun of it, they were either: A) Saying "OMG! A beautiful woman! What a horribly offensive picture!" B) Saying "OMG! You are so hot! I love that picture! I love you!"

Never judge a man before you walk a mile in his his, and if he's still mad at you he'll be a mile away without shoes.(Forgot where I read that)
