I am now running Mandrake Linux, and I am quite happy with it. There are a few things I am trying to setup, like my HP Photosmart 120 digital camera, so if you have any information on setting it up, let me know. I have done the typical searches on google, and news groups and mailing lists, all to no avail. I will make the assumption that it has to do with my overall misunderstanding of how to actually install the damn thing with USB support, but I am a patient person.

I also got the dual monitors working. (Screenshot) I am running Gnome with the Ximian desktop, and the Nautilus SVG theme. Very graphical, but very fast and very nice.

I have been fooling around with Gimp, since I had to give up Photoshop. It has dramatically improved since I last used it, and I am very please with it. I should be Gimping along nicely in the coming weeks.

Programming wise, Perl-GTK has kinda of grown attached to me. I know, you might expect me to be a PHP-GTK fan, but Perl-GTK just seems nicer.

Anyways, I am fooling around with the idea of building a GUI for MySQL since I also had to give up MySQLFront in the move to Linux.

But I am happier for the move. It just feels "cleaner". Does anyone else ever get that feeling?
