  1. .... I dont know how to use IRC, and the computer that goes online uses Windows. Any suggestions on programs?
  2. In my personal opinion, I've enjoyed Virtual Machines as a source to test out another OS... but would rather have to reboot the machine to get the full "experience" out of the OS. My recommendations (based off of my experiences and knowledge) if you are doing little things, that don't stress the computer that much, then go with the VMs. If your going to run CPU intense programs, then its better to dual boot. Hope this has helped -SkullFire
  3. Hello all, I would like to introduce myself as SkullFire. I am not entirely new to the open source/Linux scene, but I can't say I'm even close to know the standards Recently (about a week ago) I have installed Linux to my desktop computer. Where I've had previous distributions on my system before, this one has lasted 7 days without either being forgotten or deleted. I had given up on Linux before, because i couldn't understand it, but times have changed, and I'm looking for a new experience Something fresh and fun. I am also into video gaming and music too. Two of the core reason's I couldn't use Linux... my games wouldn't work and my sound card was always incompatible. I hope to have a fun time here in this community, and I wish to learn many things and meet lots of people too -SkullFire

  5. Quick update, I though of using this hardware: Power Supply: 420 watt Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA Motherboard: MSI K9MM-V Socket AM2 VIA K8M800 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard Video: EVGA 256-A8-N542-T2 GeForce 7600GS 256MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card Drive: DVD Reader Memory: G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU1-1GBNR Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Orleans 2.0GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADA3200CWBOX Sound compatible? personally, I know that AMD works well with Linux, and the only things I would be concerned hardware wise is the SATA, and I'm not all that worried about it Still looking for opinions on distros and any menu programs... Thanks
  6. I have a GP2x, and I love how easy it is to use a menu with a gamepad to select games! So I though to myself... how about I build a semi-decent computer and hook it up to the TV (which has a VGA port). Here arises my problems. I know somewhat what I want for specs, but what should I be looking for hardware (as in Linux compatibility)? What distro would work best (in your opinion)? And is there a menu program for linux that can run off a USB gamepad? This is what I want to do. I want to put a ton of games from Doom to Supertux, and some emulators, and then maybe some extra media functions (DVD, MP3, whatever). The menu would have to look decent and be able to execute the program, then reopen itself when the program is closed... Can anyone help me with this? Thanks -SkullFire
