Well characters sometimes don't show in linux, and I am not sure why. FreeBSD 5.3 is good don't get me wrong. I just did not like losing 28.5GB of drive space.

check out the web based tax software at places like turbotax - they only charge you if you file with them or print - so fill out the online stuff and then copy it to yer 1040 forms. Not free speech, but free beer for once. April 15th is closing in quick.

Yes and I have had to fight with others telling me I should use Windows, nah, not me. Linux is all for me now and as far as I am concerned, if it's not native to linux, it's not worth using.

Oh I Love Linux.

1. dumeter - to watch network activity
2. windows media player - to play wmv files

i've tried dumeter in wine, it works okie-dokie
i've never tried wmp in wine...dunno if it'll work. the linux mplayer says it'll play wmv files if i have installed the codecs. i installed the "essential" and "all" codecs packages for mplayer, still a no-go for wmv files.

if anyone has a fix for that, it'd be great !

You want network monitors for linux? Tons of them here. Everything from blinking light dock applets to the most sophisticted network administration tools.

As for mplayer. I struggled with it until I followed the instructions here for installng mplayer as part of the process of installing acidrip - a dvd ripping package. Now I can play all that stuff

Cheers!

One my neighbour is DJ. He uses Windows XP to make music with Fruity Loops and a few other programs. He hates XP, because it is very buggy at his PC and he's got a toolbar . He wants to switch to Linux, but he is afraid of inability to make mixes and tracks

Doesn't ethereal do the same thing, or are you looking the "dumeter" (specific program)?
