I have to chuck another one on there for slack. I've just renovated my desktop with dropline and I've gotta say this is the best desktop linux setup I've ever used.

But they never "really" fix it. Or worse, they fix that one and open the door for another that is even worse.

That is why I have never used windoze on my rig. I will never buy a M$ product.

Code:
root@smoker / # uptime
 02:42:58 up 73 days, 20:19,  5 users,  load average: 0.21, 0.12, 0.10
root@smoker / #

or maybe even more impressive....
Remove one OpenGL library (MesaGL)
remove one driver (NV)
compile a new Graphics Driver (Nvidia)
Compile a new OpenGL library (Nvidia)
all without a reboot.

Well, I have recompiled the entire system, equivalent of a re-install, no reboot on that one either. That would include all those video driver stuff.

I assume you were referring to windoze on that.

Me not smoke or drink. I saw your distro was Gentoo though. It's winders that wants you to reboot after every little thing you do. I'm suprised that when you go visit a webpage that IT doesn't require a reboot too. God forebed you open a couple tabs in in Mozilla in winders.
