Why I don't have Windows installed

I found my old blog post here and thought I'd post this as a reply to myself.

I installed Arch Linux the other day, it doesn't even have an installer anymore, it's just a readme file with chroot instructions. Once it's done, sound and network have always worked out of the box for me, unlike in Windows where I need to download the network driver on another computer and copy...

Code:

:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]

A new version of EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS is ready. Changes: New (latest) versions of Slax, Puppy Linux, 4MLinux, Tiny Core and SliTaz. I have replaced Parted Magic with GParted.

Put a couple of ends on some cables that needed to be made for practice.

Made a new version of the megaphone for tablets. It is a lot sturdier now. Used tees on the end instead of ells. Sealed...
