No biggie, it wasn't really you that caused it.

actually our ass appear extrememly well polished , glossier and nicer sometimes ... we have our own peculiar reason for washing our hands(priority always comes first) , guess that our ass are useless for some reasons ...

Took a little work, mostly because I was working with fairly limited hardware on a new to me laptop, but I finally got Xubuntu 6.10 up and running a 100%.

Pentium III 1gz, 768mb RAM, ATI onboard graphics, 20gig hard drive, and 6x DVD drive.

I tried out Kubuntu for a while just so I wouldn't be biased on the subject of "KDE vs. Gnome". I've used them both before across several distros in my journey for "my" distribution. I fell in love with Ubuntu, and decided to be fair and give Kubuntu a shot. In the end I switched back to regular Ubuntu, which uses Gnome. Just got everything set up, didn't take too long with Automatix and all the scripts and stuff I had saved on my external hard drive, . There are some things about KDE that are neat and handy, but, I personally prefer Gnome. I've used xfce, fluxbox, icewm and some others as well, so I'm not trying to only choose between these two either, I just like Gnome, so here's my updated screenie.

Nice screenshots. So what are you guys using to play your games? I have HL2/CSS ,etc. and would like to try and get them working in my SUSE 10. I've heard of wine but haven't used it and don't know how easy it is to use. Thanks for any/all info.

I am using WINE, Half-Life 1 based games work fine with Steam. Haven't tried online though. For me, wine worked fine with ALMOST default configs.

Oh, and gkrellm is displaying my GPU temp as well as CPU's. Unfortunately GPU doesn't scale down like CPU, so stays fairly hot even when not being used for 3D. Playing bzflag for an hours raises temp of both to around 55 degrees, centigrade.
I really like the SATA-300 controller w/ NCQ integrated into this nForce 405 chipset, but USB ports were giving me a little trouble with some devices. So popped in a VIA chipset USB/firewire combo card and looks like that solved the last of my problems. Originally completely disabled onboard controller, but then couldn't use USB keyboard and mouse while booting. So disabled just 2.0 feature set and made it a USB 1.1 controller only. That kept the Linux drivers separate and happy and let me have my cake and eat it too. Machine is now rock solid and ready for full time use. So I'm officially decommissioning my old one today and putting this one into active service.

One last screenshot and then I gotta hit the road...

In this one I'm enabling Linux remote desktop sharing via vncviewer, logging into an LDAP server, disabling that annoying puplet app that Fedora Core insists on installing by default, configuring WebDAV file sharing, setting my default CD database server(s) and am adjusting my integrated 7.1 high definition audio via alsa mixer.
