    RE: LINUX.COM Email Address
    Oh cool. Ymail is Yahoo mail, I'm not sure if I can send from a custom address... But I do use desktop clients more and more so I can try that. Thanks for your help.

    LINUX.COM Email Address
    Hi, Quick question, I just became a member of the Linux Foundation, payed my fees, got my @linux.com email etc... And then I realize that the email is just a vanity email, that I can't actually REPLY from @linux.com... Is that right? For example, I have my @linux.com set up to forward to my ymail, which is fine, but then when I hit reply it replies from Ymail not Linux.com... Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of having this new email address?? Is there any way to solve this? If not I think I just got RIPPED OFF by the linux foundation......... refund please.... :'(

    RE: Fedora 14 is OUT! (and re-designed?!?)
    I just VB'ed it... I've got to say, the default wallpaper took my breath away!! It's worth installing just to see it :) Overall I like it, seems a lot faster and more stable than F13. GJ Fedora Team!! :cheer:

    Fedora 14 is OUT! (and re-designed?!?)
    Fedora 14 was released today (at least I found out today). Crazyyy. Looks good, although my experience with Fedora 13 wasn't all too good... hopefully this one is better. One thing though, have you seen their homepage (fedoraproject.org)? It's completely re-designed... What are your thoughts? Anyone try it/has been using it? Do you recommend? :silly: [img size=605]http://www.linux.com/media/kunena/attachments/legacy/images/Fedora_14_redesign.jpg[/img]

    RE: Linux Distributions
    I think anyone you ask will be a bit biased... I would say Ubuntu, but OpenSUSE, Linux Mint, and all the other ones mentioned here are equity as stable and good out of the box. Also a thing to note is that the distribution only matters to a certain point. You'll probably either be using GNOME or KDE as a desktop interface, which is pretty much the same across all these distros. After a while you move beyond the install and initial impressions and programs and get to the core of the distribution which (according to me) is the community. Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Linux Mint, etc. all have different communities with different personalities and feels. When you install a distro, also check out the community. Visit the forums, go to the IRC channels, ask questions, you will probably find a community and distro that matches your likes, needs, and personality best. Besides that, though, it's all LInux ;)

    RE: ubuntu saves the day
    Wow, same thing happened to me this week. My roomate has a Dell Latitude D610 and his XP has just got OVERRUN by viruses... So he was freaking out about loosing all his files and photos UNTIL UBUNTU SAVED THE DAY :) Like for you, Ubuntu installed flawlessly, quickly, and was able to recover all his files. :) Now he uses Linux Mint as his primary and is finding less and less reason to use XP. :) YAY. THANKS UBUNTU.

    RE: Wubi or partition installation
    I've done a re-partition and normal install of ubuntu a lot, and back in the day I have messed up one too many hard drives... So DON´T do that kind of install. Go with Wubi or VirtualBox for your first time(s) installing and using Linux. Then after you get a hang of it, are sure you want to use it, etc, try a normal install. Just speaking from experience :) ;)
