    RE: What is in your Box ?
    I have. I just prefer Final Cut and unfortunately there just isn't anything quick like it for Linux.

    RE: What is in your Box ?
    LOL Yeah I used to do that, but I really missed the performance of fully installed systems. I actually use the last 2 partions as floater Linux play partitions and install what looks interesting there. Currently Fedora's installed, but more than likely Ill try mandy again for the hell of it. I primarily use Ubuntu and sometimes OSX for Video editing (My god I cant wait for decent video editing software for linux!)

    The first drive is sliced up like this: Win7 :: 200mb Win7 :: 20gb OSx :: 30gb Ubuntu :: 922gb (Root=20gb, swap=2gb, home=900gb) Fedora :: 462.8gb (Root=20gb, home=remainder) I run everything through grub to handle the boot process.
