Linux An ex-Microsoft employee is arguing that Linux is ready for the primetime and that only thing keeping it away is the number of bugs it has. He claims that if these few high-importance bugs are fixed one way or another, Linux can become a dominant power in the desktop OS world.

"If it's so frequest, it's likely a driver/hardware issue."

Well said. I had the same problem as the OP, I finally realized it was because my two RAM modules had ever-so-slightly different timings, and one module simply refused to work with anything but another just like it. I ditched them both for a single module at twice the capacity (1gb X 1 instead of 512mb X 2) and problem was solved. I lost my dual-channel setup, but the difference from single-channel was negligible anyway.

As for Linux on the desktop...I agree with everyone who says multimedia needs a kick in the butt. For me the only other thing besides multimedia is gaming; World of Warcraft runs on OSX (an OS based on BSD) so when do I get my Linux port, Blizzard?
