I have found a new knoppix ver in torrent that I am trying
to d/l. 5.2. Nice look and the best part, I see that it supports
most wifi cards.
Problem is since it is so new it is only available through
a few sources. Bittorent tells me that my est. d/l time is 15 days.
I don't even know if it is in English.
My 2 cents:
I think that for the masses live cds/dvds are the way to
go and there are sooooooo many distros out there it is unreal.
Linux gurus might be all into the shell, line commands and
only one flavor of Linux but these people are not the norm. People want
pizzazz, color and eyecandy. People want what windows gave them throughout
the years WITHOUT the crashes, vulnerability, restrictions and monopoly
I have been looking into Linux flavors for some time
now. It is very interesting to see how it all has morphed. The only
thing that truly gets me down is the compatibility issues with hardware,
especially with the video drivers. I have recently found out that NVIDIA
sold it soul to the devil (Micro$oft) for then to solely have rights to pre
bundled drivers. Maybe someone can clarify this finding if deemed
I am a mechanic and although I can fix almost any type of
car problem there is, that doesn't mean that I know computers and things
associated with it.
Rock on Esteban.

What distros do you need?
