Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

that's a drastic difference. I like when I'm wrong and learn stuff. Happy dance.. happy dance..

Now to confirm the wifi card support for my notebook assuming it's like the HP DL360's NIC; include firmware on flashdrive and let it get sucked in during install.

After that, it's just finding something close to the drake tools network connections manager and get my head around partitions.

Is there a prefered graphic wifi connection manager? The one's I've tried have been very esoteric; actually, the only way I've been successful is to hit wpa_supplicant.conf directly but that starts to suck when your regularily switching between AP.

Also, by partitions I mean that I've been spoiled by the drake tools graphic partition manager and am not yet comfortable enough with the Deb partition manager to cut disks up like I do for Mandriva. Probably just a matter of breaking a few VM installs until the fog clears though.

Unrelated; has anyone mounted Truecrypt partitions from a Linux liveCD? While it mitigates data loss from direct access to a machine, it also means decrypting the drive if something can't be fixed from within the Windows boot (work notebooks, no choice of regular staff OS).
