Wow! Windows and Linux users please read!
Spread the word about this absolutely brilliant distribution! If you have high speed internet, download now, if not, get the CD. It is soooooo worth it. I've been handing them out like candy here, and everyone has been extremely impressed (old Windows users are being turned). No install. It is installed on the CD, and won't mess with your HD unless you really want it to. Comes with great software, some nice programming environments, etc... Completely safe way to "play" with Linux (until you realise you can't live without it and trash your other OS). ;)
edit: Just worth reiterating: it doesn't use your hard drive at all, not for temp files or anything. Not unless you specifically set it up to (which you really can't do on accident).
Govtcheez, the point is...
>> I'm really waiting for people to start actually paying for it, then we'll really see companies developing power apps and games for Linux.
>That would kinda defeat the pupose of Linux altogether, wouldn't it?
No, Govtcheez, it would not. I would gladly pay for Linux if I had to (at least the prices are fair, not like bloody XP). When they say Linux is free, they mean 'free speech not free beer'. 'Free' in this context (linux) means not only that the product is free, but that the user is 'free' to do whatever they like with it - modify it, redistribute it, even sell it. That - and the fact the Linux is a hobby and passion for thousands of skilled developers worldwide, not the brainchild of some corporate bigwig who's only concerned about revenue - is what makes Linux great.
