Window-Less
 
For the first time in years :lol:

Getting this install settled finally and loving it. Got full 3d functionality with ATI, so I may install some games soon too.

I'll get a copy of Win7 soon enough, but right now just enjoying what I can learn from Linux.

Wow. That's beautiful, grey. :clap2:

I'm not as brave as you are, but I am going to be using my linux laptop a lot more than I have. ;)

Thanks Doc - I'm loving this - even when I still had Win installed I spent much more time in 'nix.

Won't be long before Borderlands or another game is calling me again :lol: but I have this set up as my primary desktop right now.

Can't wait to see what I can do after I really learn something. :D

Yea, that's why I got a laptop dedicated to Linux. I want to be as efficient with Linux as I am with Windows. That's why I ask a lot of questions....

Thanks Arup - I'll check it out. :)

Definitely settled on Ubuntu btw - I re-installed OS11.3 on a spare drive yesterday and worked with it a few hours last night and finally conceded suse just isn't for me.

Besides, this install has been up and running for a while now and is configured almost exactly the way I like it, just a few more tweaks to go, but I don't want to put this much work into another install just now. :lol:

EDIT: Oh, and I got the biggest kick out of the Emerald theme manager icon turning from green to red after installing an ATI card. :D Simple I know, but very cool nonetheless :)

Heh, I installed GNOME yesterday and after a painfully 3 hour ordeal, I reinstalled OS KDE. GNOME just isn't for me.:thumbdwn:

Dudes, even I keep Windows around for my gaming fix lately. Nice on grey.

Ubuntu and Linux ftw.......well done.It looks really great. Let me know what games you install and how they work out for you.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Doc, the OS11.3 Gnome theme is just...bad :lol: I can see why it turned you off.

Sean - I'll be reinstalling Win7 at some point, Borderlands be calling...:D

Drol - Most likely Doom 3, RTCW, maybe try Wolfenstein 2010 for kicks, but it's just performance tests. I really need to actually learn this OS :o:D

Get me gaming again and it's all over....:p
