It still has the old Windows 7 build I replaced the base system with, but I'm playing with Linux Distros now. Mint on xkde gets me good performance, but I'm finding it limited in terms of trying to get things set up the way I want. Namely, I'm having a hard time replacing with window managers and default terminal. I hope replacing my shell commands won't be hard either. I'm only a day in since having dropped Linux in Highschool. Crystal Palace, Orbitsville --- Posted via InnerRealmBBS innerrealmbbs.us Synchronet Inner Realm BBS - Charlotte, NC - innerrealmbbs.us

Today's > Apple products are tomorrow's e-waste.That's just more loot for me, the dumpster diver who's desk is made of two metal trashcans keeping up a surface that's made of two flat cardboard boxes ducktaped together, and filled with trash to add structral integrity.Shit, with all that spare mineral resources I can take to the recycler plant, I'll have enough money to get a bus ticket to the city so I can steal a bike and take it apart and put it back together in my garage for hours.
