Multiple flavours of Linux- what to opt for?

Posted 09-23-2012 at 04:26 PM by leosubhadeep

I must admit, I am so confused!

Say you are a kid (you always were a kid once! ) and go to a mall with parents for shopping. You see an icecream parlour in there, and couldn't resist running towards it. Your dad gives you moderate warning about being ill but you barely care. So you go, and see there's a season offer: pick up any flavour of icecream, without any cost.

Window-Jacking

Posted 03-26-2009 at 10:25 AM by thebusker

well, I window-jacked my wife's vista box. It is now Minty Fresh.

Grabbed me a USB, these instructions and altered the boot order on her machine. I give it about two weeks before she's a convert.

My main machine is a Frankenstein beasty. The box was some old Pentium III which was gutted and overhauled. Old 1999 monitor, industrial strength sound card, wireless only, 64 bit chipset... it's a study in contrast.

Initial load was with Windows 7. Tried that...
