    Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, Internet Senior Editor for the prevalent Ziff Davis, has written a brief editorial explaining why we should all avoid Linux and stick with the big M-S. Short, sweet, and worth the read.

    I've gotten ATI cards working quite well in Linux, it's just a nightmare. Of course, it's more an ATI problem than a Linux one. But it's one of the things that held me back from migrating for a while. I eventually sold my ATI cards and moved on.

    ahh i gave mine to a friend, i like being able to say that and not have it be illegal, GO LINUX!! i may have to do a re-install as i screwed something up ~hides in corner embarrased~ i cant configure stuff so i thought rather than spend hours trying to find a way around it, re-install it.

    I broke my Linux installs dozens of times when I first got started by poking around as root with not the first clue of what I was doing. Now, I'm really confident that no matter what goes wrong, I can fix it easily. Of course, once you set up Linux, unless you actually get in & break it yourself (as root), nothing goes wrong. :) What I usually did to break it was trying to compile a new kernel and removing the old kernel before I'd tried the new one. :( Since I didn't really know what I was doing with the kernel compile, I'd have an unbootable system! Don't make the same mistake.
