Anyone else notice lately how good Wine is getting? No, of course I'm not talking about the beverage. Last year, Wine would only "sorta" work with the ClassXP software. This school year is a different story.
You may want to write a simple script that launches an xterm window with different color options. Pseudo hash tables in bourne shell. An easy way to this is by first listing the supported colors in the script (pseudo hash table):
I come from a Mandriva/Mandrake/PCLinuxOS background. I'm a KDE guy who also installs gnome apps. I've not ever installed Debian, and I've used Debian derived distros very little. So, how does Sidux measure up for me?
I can recall when a new impending release from Mandrake/Mandriva was great cause for excitement. In the last few years, Mandriva has been on the decline. Could the upcoming 2008 release start to turn things around?
One of the first questions Linux users often ask, after installing their distro of choice, is “How do I install Nvidia drivers?” Although the process has been hit and miss in the past, one of the best solutions that I have come across is Envy for the Ubuntu distribution.
Don’t get me wrong, Linux is a great operating system. It’s been around for awhile and is widely accepted. It’s used for a vast majority of all the servers located on this planet (and even in space!) However, there are a few drawbacks to it.
USB ADSL Modem Speedtouch 330, the popular or even the default ADSL modem in some contries, is also one of the item that is difficult to make usable in Linux.

GoblinX is a live Linux distribution based on Slackware 11, written by a Brazillian developer who goes by the pseudonym Grobsch. It comes with five different window managers/GUIs, and uses custom artwork for each of them that's quite unlike anything you've seen before.
We're all familiar with the "big two" desktops for Linux -- KDE and GNOME. Of course, there are many more to choose from. If you asked a group of Linux users, "Which one is best?", the ensuing debate would likely take on religious overtones. Some would even argue that a desktop like KDE is too hard for newbies to use. Still, it's a safe bet that most Linux users don't stray too far away from those "big two," KDE and GNOME. So it's especially interesting to look at some innovative alternatives.

Xubuntu targets slower older hardware with limited resources and display size like my IBM Thinkpad with 1 Gig Intel processor 250 Mb memory, 30 Gig hard drive and 14 inch display size.
This is just a note that a fairly new project is in the works at MyPCLinuxOS to offer PC Linux OS Gnome 2.18. I am only a tester and our team has not yet released an official test .iso featuring Gnome 2.18. Our Dev's will not be officially releasing anything until the system is as bug free as is possible - in line with the main PCLOS and Texstars philosophy.

Seems our beloved PCLOS is now the preferred operating system of superheros as well. As seen in this screenshot, PCLOS is finding its way onto desktops and laptops everywhere - even Hollywood.
Remember all those articles around the web that claim "This year might be the year for the Linux desktop" ? Honestly, should we really care? Shouldn't we let the user decide from themselves? Aren't they the final decider in all this?
