Back to Linux after many years


Came across an old (but still working) laptop someone wanted to throw out and thought I could extend its life a little bit more by installing Linux. And a great idea it was! Had some problems with Ubuntu and ATI drivers at first, but Fedora 12 was a great runner up: it installed flawlessly and everything works! The last Fedora I'd installed on some machine was release 2 (two), so yes, a lot of time has passed since the last time I'd played with Linux. Almost forgot how fun this can be...
