i think it's interesting to watch these heavyweights fight it out.... but i don't fancy SCOs chances here....

... if you go to the Novell sight mentioned, then you can download (21mb) the actually letters.... you have to give Novell credit for that!

Why Linux? Why can't Windows die now?

Linux isn't as bad as you may think. For me it has more or less the same "spirit" as AmigaOS!

A1SE: G3@600MHz, 2GB, 1GBit network card
A1XE: G4@933MHz, 2GB, refitted AC'97 codec
microA1: G3@800MHz, 1GB

- A1 Linux support -

Linux is excellent once you get into it.

In fact it has made my Windows box redundant.

Of course I'm looking forward to OS4, but I won't be getting rid of Debian on my A1 in a hurry.

OS4.1 + SAM Flex
RIP my A1XE.. that used to have an appetite for batteries!

I gotta agree, don't hate Linux just yet. Linux is currently the only alternative to Windows on the X86 platform (for the masses at least). If you can download a distro like Mandrake 9.2 and burn the ISO image to CD, the install practically takes care of itself on a PC.

It has a definite place in this world of computing, and is very powerful. I just don't fancy using it as an everyday OS for gaming etc. (actually, gaming is my biggest complaint about Linux). All of the rest is very nice. If Linux had better gaming support, I would be running it instead of Windows on this PC. I did run it on here for about six months.

Yup HWGA, in full agreement here, especially with regards to gaming. When I had Mdk 9.0 and 9.1 a while ago, I had subscribed to Transgaming, you know, WineX so I could play Day of Defeat and some other games. But the worst thing about Linux IMO is its file system, and the fact that I had to go thru console to boot up any game I wanted to play, instead of going thru a GUI system. Other than that, Linux produces a crispier image when playing games, as well as DVD playback. In fact, I reinstalled Mdk 9.1 on my Windows box last night, you just can't let it go for more than a few months. Although I recognise that Linux still has many weaknesses, it is <b>rapidly</b> improving, namd making it more accessible to the masses. Apparently, Kernel 2.6 is a MAJOR improvement upon the previous kernels... we'll wait and see .
