Linux It seems that I am in some sort of retro-mode. As Linux on the desktop is getting bigger and better, with more apps, more sleek looks (Galaxy, Keramik and Blue Curve for example) and more idiot proof, I am going onto simpler, more condensed stuff. The big distributions are nice, but I really do not need all the applications that come with them all the time.

But I could pick up a 486 for free from my school (yes they give old computers away) and install linux, and still do everyting i do in windows but free of cost. That's a few hundred bucks in my pocket from the computer and another hundred or so for XP, which is quite a bit of cash for a poor college student =)
