Updated 03-25-2009 at 12:01 PM by chexmix (added to proper category)

After greedily eyeing ThinkPads for a time (I get a decent discount on some models at work), I veered off in a different direction, did some more research and bought myself one o' those netbook thangs.

It is very cute. It's an Asus 1000HE. Asus has ceased to ship these things with Linux, so this has the mephitic Windows XP on it. No! The lousy! It burns!

My initial plan is to get Slackware loaded onto the new machine (whether using Slackeee or some other method is as...

In the coming months...

Over the next couple of months, I will be making a small but potent website based around my knowledge of the Slackware operating system.

Linux and Microsoft Windows Future

Avant Window Navigator

Posted 03-19-2009 at 05:58 PM by unixfool

I'm going to try to make my Dell Mini's desktop look more like the OS X desktop. I'd rather not install OS X to do this...
