For no other reason that "because I can", I installed SuSE 8.0 with GNOME, used it for a while, and then switched to KDE3. I may switch again when GNOME2 comes out.

It's always a good idea to install both KDE and GNOME. That way, if any package requires libraries from either desktop, you can still use it. The amount of hard drive space needed for both is amazingly small.

For that matter, most Linux programs are amazingly small to anyone used to Window programs.

Another development: Walmart is now selling computers
with Lindows pre-installed.


Ooooo. They must be as reliable as appliances, if Walmart is selling them.

I wouldn't know. I don't shop at Walmart, even though there's one half a mile away.

All I really meant was that, if a company like Walmart is selling pre-installed Linux computers, then Linux is getting very mainstream and acceptable.

Maybe I'll have to switch to Free BSD to keep up my self-image :-)
