Can’t decide if it’s late or early

But know it’s past my bed time.

Still trying distros. Installed Mandriva and while there are things I like about it the things that I don’t like outweigh the ones I do. Downloaded and burned OpenSUSE KDE 11.1, but haven’t booted it for political reasons and doubt that I will. At present am trying out the new testing Gentoo Live DVD and liking it a LOT. So far don’t see a way to install from it but after playing with it running off of the DVD I think I’m gonna give it a shot on the hard drive. Sucker is faster running from the DVD than several of the hard drive installs I have tried lately have been.

For now am gonna call it a night and see if I can figure out what route to take transportation wise tomorrow. Till then…

    Gentoo Live? That seems somewhat oxymoronic, since Gentoo is supposed to be the Geeks’ Geek Linux distro. But things change…let me know how it goes. I am planning very soon to set up my main box at home as a Linux box, and them try to get XP running in a virtual machine on that, as needed–and hoping not to need it much. Saw people doing virtual machine stuff on laptops (possibly netbooks) this week and really want to give it a try. Of course, the most impressive one was being used by a Unix geek, so…

    I’ll be in touch soon, about to try and call.

      It would seem so but am still using it from the DVD and liking it. It uses a script to optimize the programs for the machine it’s running on. Takes a bit of time to get it all up and running but once there it flies! Of course there is a fair amount of stuff missing that would be nice to have but with only a gb of ram the amount of stuff that can be added on is limited.
