(^_^) In 1994 I had a hard time trying to start with Slackware, and gave up.
(^_^)In 1999, I had another try with SuSE - it had me under mah Linux Truck

(^_^)humor] . . . after about 6 weeks got it going.
(^_^)That was my experience - the first few weeks are the toughest - after

In my case, I forgot to choke the rear wheels and the truck rolled
backwards on me! :-P It's fine and dandy for machines running Linux in
those settings because the machine basically sits there and what have
you, but for someone like me, I want it to do everything Windows can do.
Right now I can't see myself going full time on Linux and giving up
totally on XP. Don't think that will ever happen, but I would like to
get it to a point where it will be more useful. Learning should be fun
imo, but it (learning) can be so darn frustrating at times, especially
when its something that should be so simple, and sometimes those simple
problems are the biggest pita things! :-(

Too many people spend money they haven't earned to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.
