Morphos A new product arises from Genesi: The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements. Both IBM and Motorola feature the new product in their pages.

RE: Application installing difficult?

@Nate Downes
I'm glad for you that emerge worked for you. Do you have a URL on the package list that can be emerged? Does emerge display a menu of what's available to download on the official Gentoo servers? Does emerge do dependencies for you (DL from Net and install needed Pck) or does it just tell you that you need to search google for more emerge files like RPM does? Do I have to recompile the dependancies too?

I don't find search thru google funny just to install gnome apps. I didn't try updating the XFree86 server. Now THAT must be really fun for you. On Red Hat, I could see the home network. On SUSE and Mandrake, I couldn't. No utility to fix it up. What next?

Bottom line:Linux on Desktop = Not today. Maybe next year when more distros die out and people focus on solving Linux distros's problems.
