Not entirely appropriate; in fact, not at all appropriate or relevant to your post but ...

Does anyone know what ever happened to the linux chick?

I'm fairly convinced that bob the builder was a highly sophisticated psychological operation sponsored by the masonic building community to gull children into a benign view of what are basically a bunch of shiftless, incompetent, thieving fuckers.

Though,I can see parallels with the world changing mr obama operation.

Linux jailbait surely?

One can only guess what subsection of the on-line community that was targeted at

and what is it with Linux anyway?

having spent one evening last week failing to get wubi to install Ubuntu on a two different laptops it'd take more than a pair of tits to win me over

Ubuntu worked fine for me, apart from wireless card drivers (which I wouldn't normally use).

Stef said...

It works fine for me too, as a stand alone installation on a dedicated machine

In theory, with wubi you can install Linux as a dual boot option with windows, without partitioning dedicated drives, which for reasons I won't bore you with seemed attractive

IMHO the wubi guys aren't quite there yet

I already have partitions so I guess it wouldn't be too difficult to use it again. Too bad ATI's Linux drivers suck, and my machine has....you guessed it, an ATI graphics adapter. Being a laptop of 2003 vintage, I can't change it - not that it does a bad job in Windows, it still surpasses more modern laptops on the 3D side of things.

nothing wrong with 5 yr old laptops imho

as long as you keep Vista away from them

bad, bad Vista

Yes, Vista is terrible, I use the XP Pro licence it came with. Gota love ex-corporate clearouts.

In fact I deliberately avoided XP SP3 as it is an attempt to make XP more like Vista.

As for it being old, well it was an expensive, full-featured (HP NC8000) laptop built at a time when quality was more important than making everything dirt cheap. Thats why elements of it are still more powerful than modern laptops costing twice as much.
