Re: What distro do you use to see this forum?

I'm using winXP.  sad

It's my work OS, while I've just installed a nice, new 2.4 Ghz P4, 1024 MB of RAM, Geforce FX 5200 machine at home which I hope to run a dual winXP (for some of my wokr apps, like Photoshop and some games) and Arch boot.

It will be fun!

I'm so excited about new computer...I even got a 19" monitor...I'll be at 1200x1600...Whooo!

...

*ahem*

...

Pardon the outburst.

That would be too small for me. Rememeber the distance between you and
your monitor at regular work tables should be the length of you outreaching
arm.

i work with 15"-1200x1600-TFT(ips) (Thinkpad A31p):

it's too small, if you leave all fonts at 8 or 10pt, but if you change this to 16pt and set the icons (KDE) at 64x64, it's really nice (not to forget, that you can have a large cursor with X11 -- also 64x64) ... the only thing is when you surf the internet and see small photos and the fixed-size stuff --- but the big advance is: you can open 4 editors in one screen and see all side-by-side

this is not bad, if you search for other solutions (Arch) around there :-)

this thing is also useful for me ... i'm trying to make a pkg --- sounds funny (not really productive, but funny)

EDIT: 21min later: XPde is a as bad a DE as XP is a OS .. and the installation is also too much windows-like :-(
(i wasnt able to build it from source ... they suggest to copy binaries :-( :-( )

i give it up ... it worked, but you have to miss a lot of features you have with gnome or kde (that's maybe the reason why i dont use XP for daily things...)

Re: What distro do you use to see this forum?

wow... so many folks using arch... well that's cool. smile unfortunately at this moment (i'm at work), i'm using winxp... but at home, i slack!! baha. Arch is still something i'm exploring. I'm "lingering around" to see how things go first before sitting down to seriously use it.

Windows 98 with VMware 4.0.5 on arch. Works good with a 2.6.5 kernel and http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/vmware-any-an … e61.tar.gz despite the compiler warnings from gcc 3.4.0.

Gentoo/WinXP/BeOSMax on my desktop and Arch on my laptop... although that gentoo may be disappearing soon because of how long it takes to update something in that distro: the inherent flaw in all source-based OS's.

Gentoo right now, but I use arch in vmware to get a feel for it. Probably gonna switch my box over to arch in the next few days.

Re: What distro do you use to see this forum?

I just installed arch on my work system (put the original win2000 in a virtual machine with vmware).

My wifes computer is now ArchLinux.   My home server computer has been ArchLinux for a while now.

My main home computer is a toshiba laptop and it is running windows 2000 since there are no drivers for some of the hardware.  Although I am running arch in vmware on it, and use that for most everything.

Basically, 95% of everything I do is on ArchLinux.

3 months ago, 95% of everything I did was on Windows 2000.

6 months ago, 100% of everything I did was on Windows 2000, with the occassional programming task being done on a linux or unix machine at work thru a telnet session.

So yes, I've been converted, and am rejuvinated.

Why, thank you for the faith you show in my intelligence! What have I done or said to earn that?

Now you actually can keep up a real life instead for just waiting until the compilation is finished..so what are you gonna do?

Pretty much the same stuff I did in gentoo, because compiling packages in the background is unnoticable when you're just browsing the net, listening to music, and coding.

well..it's not that I'm sherlock maybe but my equation looked something like this...
gentoo+ion3+home made theme+like cli=smart

hmm,eg, you switch from xfree to xorg in 3 min. install eclipse with deps in 2 min, install ooo in 2 min and so on. No more waiting.
What if a hot babe calls you up and ask you to come over and install linux to her. Installing gentoo is a few days hard work, no woman is worth that.;)
