First install of linux woot!! woot!!

alright I know most of you probably don't think much of this, but this is a major victory for me (think of the excitement the first time you installed linux) and I must say WOW!! everything runs sooo much better. firefox for instance runs so much faster in linux than windows (it runs at the speed chrome does in windows, cant wait for linux chrome!!!) just check out Warbringer Combat shock offical video on youtube there's so much more frames I wasn't seeing in's that damn good!! and to make things better I'm running off an acer aspire 5610 and almost everything except the hotkeys works right out of the box. I'm running opensuse 11.1 and like novel says I'm having alot of fun, everything is working great can't wait till my copy of rebel code: linux and the open source revolution arrives in the mail from amazon...I'm phyched!! talk to you all later gotta lot to do, see ya

If you really want to see how chrome is doing in linux. There is an alpha build. But beware its no where close to being done .
