hey-bout the linux thing.... whats up with local electronic store charging NZ$120 for mandrake?????
Linux has terrible GPS support. It's a pain in the *** to configure unless you have in depth knowledge of it, and has Poor cutting edge hardware support. (it's only now that 802.11G is supported in linux, and that won't even work with my NIC.)
I'll stick with Windows thank you. That way I know when I buy a peice of hardware that it's going to work just fine. Free isn't usefull if it won't do what you want. Linux won't what I want. So I'm not going to use it.

They charge you 120 because it's packaged with a ton of software so that you don't have to go search and download them seperately. There are some linux non opensource apps on those CDs too. But you can download it free from ftp.mandrake.comOriginally Posted by nzKAOSnz

If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway
I'm from NZ as well. I have jetstart, but downloading 4+ discs, i prefer to pay. There is a guy in dunedin who has a company called CopyLeft. He can get you a lot of distro's for not-to-bad rate. You can also choose how many disc's.Originally Posted by nzKAOSnz

Yup, because M$ convinced Broadcom to not release details on their 'G' chipset. And I do use 802.11g under Linux. Its rather easy, use something better then Broadcom!Originally Posted by fluffy2097
