Wow, I read this incredibly stupid piece on osopinion, this kid ranting abotu how wonderful linux is for the desktop, how it's ready for primetime, how it's so c001 because it runs on all sort of hardware, we don't need office. Idiot. I love linux, I use it as my primary desktop, but i still need a windows box for ms office, some games, SAT prep software, decent video playback and other stuff. This all to someone who's seasoned. Linux is *NOT* ready for primetime on my grandmother's computer as the saying goes.

I tried caldera's linux technology preview yestetday, installer was great, found everything, even a usb mouse and my ATI card, which I don't even know the chispet of. Working verions of kde, koffice & konqueror, all which look very cool. Still unstable. I will put koffice on my main box soon.

Article by me published in linux journal today, I'm very happy, need to write for them more often

Win4lin is cool, it does it's job, it's fast. Too bad they ahven't fixed the X4 problems yet.

HTML::Template is cool

Played the Descent 3 demo yesterday, made me nauseous, but it worked with libGL from X4, which is cool, hardware rendering is definitley working on my g400.

More to say later. Still trying to scrounge up a laptop, if you can help, please email me

This week i lost a $15 metrocard and bent a metrocard with like $9 on it so badly I need to mail it back to the MTA, sucks.
