    RE: The new Linux.com
    no, he has a valid point. flash is complete crap on linux. on fresh installs of anything (at this moment, linux mint 7) flash elements crash in firefox all the time, in the middle of youtube movies, in the middle of page loads, it is, crap. it only got worse after they added 64 bit support. i have to use my macbook (not that that causes me pain, as it is my favourite computer) just to do things that involve flash so i know they will not crash in the middle of them. also the ads are so huge the site area is so narrow. as for opensourcing the site, i could not care less if it was or was not. really do not care.

    RE: Why you choose linux, not FreeBSD?
    I ended up choosing FreeBSD because in my own tests for the application I needed it had better throughput on both the network interfaces and daemon's like mysql that Linux did. (this was a year ago) Solaris (slowlaris) actually beat FreeBSD on my testing machine in terms of network throughput, but it sucked at doing every day tasks. And Linux on the desktop, well, it just has better general hardware support. And at the time I made the switch Quake III Arena was the only game I needed anyway. Anyway... work gave me a Macbook to carry around and I use that more often than not now... (still please don't flame me, lol)

    I choose Linux for my desktops. I choose FreeBSD for my servers. I know it is sort of wrong. Please don't flame me lol.
