When I first bought the hard drive, I made a bunch of 13 GB partitions to put a whole bunch of OS's on.
When I get money, I think I will buy another hard drive, so , I can put more.
That reminds me, I have to update my profle.
I switched distros because I got bored. I will soon try something new, SimplyMepis is too simple to use, too many things work.Stumbling around the 'net:
My many switches:
Windows XP --> Redhat 9 (wanted to try it)
Redhat 9 --> Mandrake 10 (OpenOffice.org didn't work in RH)
Mandrake 10 --> Windows XP (wanted functionality)
Windows XP --> FC3 (PO'd at Windows and M$)
FC3 --> Mandrake 10.1 (Kept crashing and freezing)
Mandrake 10.1 --> SuSE 9.2 (wanted a more professional version, with better package support)
SuSE 9.2 --> Gentoo 2005.0 Stage1 (wanted a fully customizable experience with source-package support)
And so here I am at Gentoo, very happy. We'll see how it all goes.
winwoes->mandrake9.1 (just to see what all the fuss was about)
mandrake->suse9.1 (wasn't overimpressed with mandrake at all)
suse 9.1->mandrake10.1 community (was annoyed that couldnt compile stuff and watch dvd's)
mandrake10.1->suse 9.1 (found out i couldnt do it in that either joined here and solved problems on suse)
and i love it, just dont really want to pay for a newer version of suse so might give the gentoo install another go, failed miserably at the first hurdle last time tho...
also went straight from win2k on my laptop to DSL as waiting fifteen mins for a 233hz 64mb ram thing to boot up was gettin on my tits and it wasnt powerful enough for mandrake or suse.You know, aliens are going to come to earth in 50 years and kill the hell out of us for DDoSing their networks with this SETI crap

Upgraded to Libranet 3.0.
I prefer Debian. The published "stable" release is getting a little old. Libranet is a frontend to Debian with admin enhancements. Hardware that would not work with Woody's old kernel work fine with LN's 2.6 kernel.
Libranet 3.0 is the best Linux installation I have managed since starting with early versions of Slackware more than 10 years ago.
