    The Windows OS has never belonged to the user anyway... it is a liscense agreement that allows us to use it, that is all.

Is it true that you will have to authenticate with MS servers to use your operating system? If so, I have a feeling it's going to suck to be a Windows user. It's kind of like your computer won't really belong to you anymore.
    How do you use Linux for gaming? I tried getting Wine to run Hitman, Hitman 2, Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed, RalliSport Challenge, F1 2002, and MOHAA.... didn't work at all - I even tried adding the DLL's the games wanted to Wine and its config file, no success. I tried Win4Lin but then I may as well go to Windows; So what exactly do you play on Linux? and how did you get it working?

    edit: BTW, I also was using Redhat 8.0 with kernel version 2.4.18-14

    The only game I play using wine is half-life. All games that use the quake 3 engine are ported to Linux, I think(i could very well be wrong). Could you find any wine HOWTO's on any of those games?

    Windows 2003 is, or was, also called windows .net if that clears anything up. It hasnt been officially released but there are beta's that we testers are nice enough to supply among the surfers of the internet.

    I bought the Windows .NET RC2 and it is identical to Windows Server 2003 Enterprise. Also, Microsoft had a countdown for when Windows 2003 and Visual Studio 2003 came out, and they are both for sale now cause they have purchasing options at their site and the countdown is over. What do you mean by officially released?
