Linux

itworld.com: Like most long-time computer users, I remember the good old days when it took five minutes to boot my PS/2 machine into Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, and running Word and Excel at the same time was about as adventuresome as one could get on a machine. I remember being amazed at how I could play Tetris while installing my first Linux distribution (Caldera OpenLinux, made by--shhh!--SCO), which convinced me forever that Linux was better at handling system resources.

Salix OS 13.0.2a: Not gnarled or creepy at all

Filed under
Linux

techiemoe.com: Today's menu consists of Salix OS, which like many of the rants I do these days came from an email suggestion.

Which method would you prefer? I prefer the second method most, not because it is easy, but also it saves some time.
