What a Pleasure
By MortazaviBlog on Aug 26, 2005
O.K. This one comes from my old and only home machine, a 5 year-old 700 MHz e-Machines, now with Suse Linux installed. It's much faster than the Windows 2000 OS running on it.
I've already set up my private e-mail account on it, as well as my wife's.
I've already checked my access to documents on the Windows side. The .doc files work really well from within OpenOffice.org 1.1.1 which came with an update patch installation downloaded from the Suse network. (I've not checked any of the other file types.) I could even play videos from my favorite source of video news, Reuters: http://tv.reuters.com. RealPlayer installed during OS installation (perhaps it was one of the updates the OS installation grabbed from the network) works wonderfully after it was configured for the proper DSL speed available to me.
It's amazing how quick and smooth this was! I've never experienced any better O.S. installation!!!
This is how a good O.S. can gradually take over another. The machine refused to start with the Windows 2000 OS on its hard disk. Frustration led to this solution, and it turns out to be perfect for my purposes.
Now, I hope my read access to the files on the Windows side will allow me to retrive those files and then take over the Windows partition as well . . . I'm sure the kids will love the KDE, too. Only if there were a few cool games to add, which I'm sure there are.
Any you recommend?
