Linux is stable as a rock.  X, not so much.

that sounds like maverick talk.

I'm looking up unique OS's (What's the correct plural for that?).
Here's an interesting one: http://www.skyos.org/

Another good one: http://www.menuetos.net/

I think I've heard of SkyOS before, but MenuetOS is news to me.

I'm pretty much of the opinion that X is a lumbering dinosaur and it's nice to see people working on alternatives.

I would be extremely interested in SkyOS if the dick didn't charge 30 euros to become a member who is able to download it.

The cross bar thing sounds cool though, but with features like that I can't help but wonder how bloated OS will become.



Edit: On a unrelated note, is there a voice activated OS yet? One where I could just say "Open Firefox" and it would pop-up? Because that would be awesome.

I've seen old black-and-white-screen Macintoshes that had software that did that.

How well does it work?  My voice dial doesn't know the difference between Dad and Ben.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Niku: :glee:

but does it not recognize "Undo"?  Because "Undo" would have been one of the first things I tried if it were me, instead of "delete long string of text eat long street of Texas".

Does anyone know how I can install ROX-Filler without an internet connection? The downloads at their site are all download the downloader kinda shit. Anyway, I'm trying to fix up my DSL CD so it's a bit more workable, and I can't get it to see my wireless, so I can't get online to download the files when on DSL.

Currently trying Kubuntu since I'm sick of not having a good web browser and having to reboot every 3 hours from memory leaks in Puppy.
I was impressed that it was able to use my wireless usb without dnis (or whatever that's called). Also, so far I am really liking Konqueror.  :wuv: spellcheck.
