    RE: Why you choose linux, not FreeBSD?
    I like BSD more. If they had a BSD.com I would probably be there instead. Hard truth but still. Anyways its just opinion and I prefer the BSD license to almost everything else.

    RE: Linux on the new Sony P Series notebook
    Although its not linux you can always try FreeBSD, sometimes it has better chances to at least boot, it doesn't use gui right off the bat like most do. You could also try Debians command line installer.

    Window Focus
    I was wondering who uses focus on mouse hover and if they can actually work decently with it, I am trying it out now and it seems ok but its taking a while to get use to.

    RE: where are... 'suggestions' & "meet & greet"
    I am glad someone else noticed this, i was wondering where you could post to request a certain distro to have its own forum. I hope LF doesn't try to limit their forums to only things that -they- think are needed. I would like to see them only delete forums that aren't used ever X days. It would be very, closed minded of them to do so.

    CRPG Games
    I am looking for some really good, GUI based CRPGs, something like planescape: torment or fallout (NOT the third one) which kinda gives it a computerized board game feeling. I was also wondering if anyone plays the classic RPG style game (A game master and some players) over the internet.

    RE: List Your Favourite CLI Programs & Utilities
    I wanted to mention FUSHI [url]fushi.sf.net[/url] which is a pretty good way to learn command line, mostly the commands you guys have covered are in FUSHI.
