  1. Re: What's the OLDEST computer you have installed linux on?

    Red Hat Linux 5.2 on a Pentium 120 with 16MB of RAM and a 2GB hard disk. It was fun.

    I still haven't figured out, though, how the hell RHL booted right from the CD. The computer didn't support...

    Re: PAE in 32bit generic by default?

    I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that PAE uses up more memory for simply addressing memory, so it would be disadvantageous to enable for less-than-4GB systems (which is the vast majority of...

    Re: Novel Writing Software for Linux - FOUND!

    you could try LyX -- it's pretty much perfect for something like a novel.

    It takes a little bit of getting used to, but it's wonderful

    Re: Old DOS games and Ubuntu

    DOSBox is portable to many OSes and hardware architectures (yeah, it even runs on a PowerPC Mac OS X computer!), it's not restricted to Windows at all.
  7. Re: How many OSs have you tried (since the beginning)?

    Can't guarantee all of them will be listed, but here goes. As much as I can remember, this is what I've used (not what has been my main operating systems, mind you):

    Re: Why I think Linux will fail on the desktop

    Do you hunt and peck? Using those "abbreviations" causes any normal typist to take longer to think about using them instead of two extra key-strokes.

    Re: Do you think Mono is evil?

    Well I stand corrected. I still don't see a point, but that's just my opinion. I might not like GNOME much either, but plenty of people do :)

    Poll: Re: Do you use Caps Lock?

    I've disabled Caps Lock, but the key isn't entirely useless. It's another Control key on my setup, which makes shortcuts a lot more accessible.

    It's not evil, but I don't really see the point in it. What popular applications are out there that use .NET?

    The only one I can think of is Paint.NET, and it doesn't even work in Mono because...

    Re: Alt-tabbing out of Urban terror

    as an alternative, Urban Terror uses ioquake3, so you should be able to do an Alt-Enter to put it into windowed mode, then open the console (usually ~) to ungrab the mouse.

    First off, ".iso" usually refers to CD images, and what you're asking for simply isn't the way to go.
