  • Linux distro as fe!

    Hey guys, I was a die hard winxp user, until I got an old p3 laptop (1ghz, 512mb ram). I decided to throw ubuntu linux on it.

    Some background on me, I love to tinker with things....linux is perfect for me! I loaded it up, and started to research how to use ubuntu. I got my thinkpad buttons to work, aswell as the Thinkpad center scrolling button (yay! I read that not too many people have figured it out..i did in 10 minutes!). Anyways, I LOVE ubuntu, so clean, so sleak....

    anyways, I had an idea to use linux on a carpc... I saw nghost and linuxice, but thought I would keep looking.,...then I found this:
    don't get me wrong linuxice and nghost seem like a better option...but I wanna try something new
