    Until a few months ago....
    98SE\XP Pro\RH9

    Had to reformat because of stupid XP and now I don't have space to reinstall. Instead I have been messing with a few Knoppix variations. Beats 98SE by about half an hour in Seti and beats XP Pro by about an hour. I imagine RH9 is slow, it seems that it's mainly intended to provide a friendly UI for new Linux users. I kind of miss it though, can't do much of anything without using the terminal in the Knoppix I'm using. :(

    I've been dual booting MDK 9.2 and WinXP pro for about a month. If it weren't for games, I probably wouldnt even log into xp.

    I am currently Running Win98 se and Linux Suse 8.0 and as a first time linux user I will say that I'm overwhelmed and very impresed. Can't wait to get a better connection and start Dling the free distros. :thumb

    I know alot of peeps that use Xp and say that its the best Gui ever, but Kde and Gnome puts Xp backrounds and themes to eternal Shame :devilwin

    I am running MDK 9.2 with XP as my main OS

    I like my MDK because I am using Fluxbox as the window manager. Very minimalistic, no icons, no start menu, no nothing, only way to get to a program is to right click on the desktop to access a menu. Takes some getting used to.

    Although I have been thinking of going to Gentoo...any recommendations on the level I should install?

    There are 10 kinds of people in the world...those that know binary numbers and those that don't

    Well on my AMD computer I have Windows 98SE (the best Windows ever in my opinion, but XP is pretty nice) on my Pentium 4 computer I have Windows XP Home and I love that, and at school (me and school computer guy are close, always working on computers) I have a Pentium III running Linspire. Well I have to admit that Linux is great, but Linspire I do not like at all. Actually we (me and computer guy) were thinking about installing Linux on all the computers at school (!!). Go Linux!
