  • CUstom is on Linux as well as Windows Now =)

    On Sunday I installed Ubuntu. I got my order of CDs on Friday but work held installing off until Sunday.

    I like it alot. Really cool OS. I dunno if it was just this distro but I love how it came with everything that I would need such as Open Office and other programs. I also like how all of my hardware is working well.

    How it compares to XP well I love Windows and I love Linux. I don't think Linux will replace WIndows as my main OS but I will definately keep using it.

    Actaully if I have one question is are there any other options for me other then GAIM? GAIM isn't showing me my whole AIM buddy list. Is there a Linux version of Trillian or regular AIM? (Preferably trillian.)

    W00T! Another convert!

    Trillian is not available for linux AFAIK. There is AYTTM, which is similar:

    http://ayttm.sourceforge.net/

    You can get AIM for linux though:

    Hope that helps.

      Cool thanks Mateo. BTW is Tactical OS going to be similiar to Ubuntu?

      BTW I am not completely a convert. I still love Windows. To me its Windows=Linux>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>OSX.

      Also does Root's name come from where I am thinking it comes from?

        Right now, there are 2 different versions of Tactical OS, one based on Debian, and another that I'm toying with that is source based.

          How big will Tactical OS be? I was just reading about Feather, which is based on Knoppix and can be booted from a business card CD or from a USB memory stick.

            <700MB. One CD worth, compressed.

            The last couple of reviews of Feather said: why bother?

            Now, Puppy or DSL, those are the BOMB.

            Actually, Puppy is pretty silly with all the dog referenced applications, but really slick when you think about it. In <50mb, you have a full office, web browsing, multimedia desktop.....for free.

            Damn small is a little bigger, but packs alot of functionality.

            I wasn't using those as a base because it is very hard to skin/brand, and alot of the tools we need (say 3D enabled Xorg, WINE, etc.) take up alot of space and dependencies.

            But if there is a demand for it, I can hack it, although it won't be pretty. ;)

                    I had a machine with Ubuntu on it as well as my windows box.

                    I was running the KDE desktop enviroment. It was pretty nice. A smooth OS, easy to use. Pretty customizable. Lots of open-source (free) programs

                    I just dont really like linux....Like I can see how it would be useful for some people, but for me Windows + StyleXP and a bunch of other customizers does just fine :D

                      I understand how you feel. I love Windows XP I have gone through so many XP machines so many different processors and hardware configs and itsrock solid. Only time I have ever had problems with Windows XP was World of Warcraft not working well (restarts) and my computer crashing. WOW I have no idea why it did that but I know the computer crashes I had were because i OCed my 9800 Pro a bit too much.

                      BTW Root do you even use XP?

                        No. I had a laptop with it on once. By the next morning it had 98SE on it. I also use win2k when I have to.

                        Tis true. I have a very small tolerance threshold for rude people and idiots. It's quite embarrassing really.
