I personally can't wait for Google Chrome to get a Linux version.

Because I don't like Opera (something about it just feels weird to me), and Firefox 3 has some features I really do not like.

For instance, in the url bar, it now has the tendency to search through the titles of pages you visited instead of the url you are trying to type. If I wanted to search through titles, I would use the frickin' history list. I WANT THE BROWSER TO SEARCH BY URL NOT BY TITLE WHEN I TYPING STUFF IN THE URL BAR!

Just in case I made a disk image using "PING", and leaving the copy on a 10gb partition.

I run the newer Mint 6 as a live DVD, and it seemed fine, except...

Sky's the limit

I always used to think Windows was the only system where you could learn music! But over time I have come to realize just how great Linux is. I found a program called "NtEd" which is basically a program for writing music score. I discovered that not only does it allow you to write music but it allows you to download any free midi and import it into NtEd, and by doing so you can see the music score! You can also print it out. What a marvelous way to learn music and for free! I know there...
