Woo Hoo !!!

Alright, so I really don't have alot to offer you guys as far as technical stuff. But I had to tell you guys that after a full day (I mean full too) of configuring, reading, installing and pulling my hair: I have made the switch! OK, it's not as impressive as some of you. I have a small computer 'farm' in this room. But now my primary rig has 80G dedicated solely to linux. I'm no longer sharing space with windows.

It feels good. I feel that I've accomplished something just by setting up redhat 9 the way I want it. I'm using mozilla 1.4 with the cool fonts and all of the plugins so I can tackle any media I come accross. I couldn't even do that with mozilla in windows! It's very liberating to realize that I have a choice. Not just a choice...I've found a replacement! I hope Bill doesn't hear me, I'm an MCSE student. LOL.

I've learned so much this week. Not just about Linux, but about window$ and especially computers in general. I think this will be very helpful whenever I'm finally on the loose at some company.

Thanks to all of you who've helped me. Especially those of you that have made incredibly detailed posts on this site. This is a great community and I'm glad to be a small part of it.
