Hi! This is Mooquackwooftweetmeow, a collection of stuff by Greg K Nicholson.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to take the plunge and install Mandrakelinux (10.0 Community) on my Windows XP box, for some dual-booting fun. Mandrake installed remarkably easily, and I found I could easily access my Windows documents from Linux.
Multiple-desktop-ery is allegedly a somewhat standard feature of Linux desktops; here on Windows, however, it's incredibly cool. Two desktop multifiers for Windows that I've recently used are DoubleDesktop (http://www.fatfreesoft.com/) and VirtuaWin (http://virtuawin.sf.net/).
The 2004-02-09 version of Knoppix (http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/) doesn't seem to want to play nice with my computer. It's probably something to do with Nero's burning of the CD; if it's as good as its proofreading, I've got no chance. A couple of days ago, when writing over a CD-RW, Nero kindly warned me that I might loose some data. Yes, loose, not lose. As in My shirt is quite loose., Did you lose weight?.
