Linux Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" was released a little while ago, so before it became too old of news, I thought I'd take a whack at experimenting with it for the sake of netbookers everywhere (and for myself, naturally). As I type this on gedit after about two weeks' use, let's just say that the system on my EeePC 1000 HE is, for the most part, rather glorious-- pun intended. As a bonus, I also got Google's Chromium browser to run on it, so keep on reading to find the section on that.

Not to pick about grammar but...

I know that in general, people ignore basic grammar rules on the internet, but the story summary for this one is nearly impossible to understand. I mean, for example, "so before it became too old of news..." is just atrocious. The prepositions and infinitives are backwards, and completely incorrectly used.

I had to read this summary twice to get the author's intentions. Maybe some proofreading before hitting the post button? Excellent site, lets keep up some semblance of dignity.

I didn't realise this was an English lesson.

Why don't you go find a new site to annoy people? Who cares how perfect our grammar 'be'?

You have to understand, the "grammar nazis" kick in when they have nothing worthwhile to say.

I really didn't mean to fuss, but I hadn't seen a post by Jordan before and wanted to bring it up. I really wasn't trying to troll or bother people. I love OSNews, and don't consider myself a grammar nazi. Everyone makes mistakes. I just thought it was worth bringing up if Jordan is new. Thats all.

Your attempt to make yourself look better than others has failed miserably.
