    RE: What do you think of This Forum Software
    Yea...I don't like reading right to left....and the clutter is some of the worst forum clutter by design I have seen. It is really quite painful to try and use. There is LOTS of room for stuff-but only 5-10 replies per page? RLY? I know we use Linux, and we are used to doing things different way...but this is a ridiculous mess of a forum if I've ever seen one. Not one standard layout anywhere on it. I mean, per page, there is less content here than there is in 24 hours of CNN news coverage-that is how bad the clutter is.

    RE: Codeweavers and STEAM: Anyone using it?
    Try it (Wine) before you write it off. Back when I used Hardy and Ibex, Steam and client-games ran fine------provided you have an Nvidia card. If you have an ATi card, good luck-the best I ever got was running Steam games in DirectX7 mode with fglrx drivers of the time. Steam usually takes some tinkering to get it to work....I remember when HL2 came out and how hard it was to get HL2 to run under Windows with an ATi card-it took a great deal of troubleshooting and experimenting.

    RE: Linux Market Share Passes 1%!!
    In all honesty there's little reason at all to care about market share. There are only 2: 1) You're a tech writer and need something to fill column inches about 2) Higher market share *might*, emphasis might, lead to better 3rd party device driver support.
