Question Just for hahas

Hello all........

I have been tinkering around with Mandrake 9.0 for a while now(3months). I have used all versions of windows and was looking for more or maybe just different. I had a 500mhz machine taking up space and decided to give Linux a shot. I like it.

Any way, I have seen some screen shots and there are some cool looking clocks, calenders, media players etc. Where do I find these things? Eventually, when I fully understand and am comfortable with it Mandrake will be my main OS. So the more screwing around with it the better I'll do.

Oh one more thing
I have played some of the Rainbow Six Games and was wondering if there's a way to play them my mandrake machine?

Thanks in advance!!!!!!

it looks like there is no native rainbow 6 for linux.
however it seems that winex will run it.

wine Being a Win32 compatability layer, letting you run openGL windows games on linux.
winex isnt free like wine, but it does support directX graphics.

Regarding the cool looks of clocks, calendars, et cetera, what GUI are you using (most likely KDE or Gnome) -- doing a small search for your desktop type or going to their homepage should yield a plethora of options.
