After last night's Bozeman LUG meeting, I decided to take the plunge and install Ubuntu on my newly (more or less) built AMD dual core machine. It was really rather anti-climactic. It installed itself, everything worked, no problem. I sniffed around a little and got my printer hooked up through the network and the existing windows box. No command line, no profanity, no bloodshed. Ubuntu loaded the NVIDIA drivers with the usual disclaimer about proprietary software and put them to work. Who says that Linux isn't ready for the desktop? Now to learn about VMWare....

Gentoo?

Isn't life short enough?


Been there, discussed that...

I think that we had this conversation last night! Actually, I am seriously thinking about doing either the Linux from Scratch or compiling Gentoo on one of the other boxes that are cluttering up my den of iniquity. Actually, I have enough boxes that I could do both. Just fire them up and walk away. Far, far away probably, since they are so old....
