Debian and its clones A few months later than expected, Debian 5 has finally arrived with a bundle of new goodies: Java is finally in the Debian repositories thanks to IcedTea and OpenJDK; Firefox (rebranded as Iceweasel) is now at 3.0; and official live images are ready for our downloading pleasure. TuxRadar has a detailed look at Lenny along with an explanation from Steve McIntyre, the Debian Project Leader, on why it was delayed. Earlier this week, we already detailed the new features in Lenny.

Obiviously, because Windows 3.1 isn't in use much anymore.

Vista certainly fulfills in the same way -- for me and millions of others.

Back when the '486/66 machines were top of the line, I remember reading a PC Magazine review which commented that there was finally a machine, albeit an expensive one, that could run Windows 3.1 at a reasonable speed. So yes, I guess you could say that Vista fulfills in the same way...

Funny, Vista runs perfectly well on my three-year old P4 system that set me back all of about $700. If you think that's expensive for a computer, you have issues.
