    I was going to download it to check for open ports from server apps; however, I got a 509 error. It seems your download is using to much bandwidth.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    mencoder is leaps and bounds better, even if it's just command line.

    There is a torrent up now but it will be slow. I will get more bandwidth for it tomorrow. I have a friend with a 50MB connection.

    Outstanding effort and thanks for having the courage to do it when you know there are trolls everywhere who'll disrespect everything anyone does. Never apologise, never explain. Good job!

    Great job, and thanks for including Rapid Photo Downloader! I just put out a new version, with previews and other cool stuff:

    Nice work. Obviously a lot of thought went into trying to make it look spiffy & easy to use for non geeks.

    Uh.. ramming 64bit OS down peoples throats is a big wank, unless you have huge datasets it achieves nothing except bragging rights amongst the preteen geeks.

    64-bit is faster then 32-bit on the same hardware:
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...u_32_pae&num=1
    In the fourteen tests for this article we did not find using Ubuntu's 32-bit PAE kernel to have a dramatic performance impact whether it be positive or negative. Granted, we were using just 4GB of system memory that is common to many desktops, but if using 8GB, 16GB, or even a greater memory capacity the performance penalties are perhaps higher. By far though exhibiting the best performance was the Ubuntu 64-bit kernel that often ended up being leaps and bounds better than the 32-bit kernel. Unless you have technical or business reasons for not migrating to 64-bit Linux with compatible hardware, there is no reason to stick around with a 32-bit kernel and worrying about physical address extension. If you want to run your own kernel benchmarks, give the Phoronix Test Suite a try that offers more than 120 test profiles and 60 test suites.
    64-bit processors have been around for years so most people should have one.
    I've got an old Compaq kicking around that's about 5-6 years old that came with a AMD 3200+ and 512MB of ram that can run this.

    This OS isn't for really old hardware, for that use Puppy.

    All answers are all replies, but not all replies are answers.

    Thanks.

    I haven't had much feedback from people that have tried it. Don't know if that's a good thing or not.
