    I have 3 computers. But it's only 1 Laptop.

    So.. I have a Dell laptop, and, being that I get bored a lot and my roomate is into computers, we decided to install Ubuntu [EDGY] Linux on it, bringing me to a grand total of:

    3 Fecking Operating Systems:
    1. Windows XP Media Center Edition
    2. Windows Vista Ultimate Beta Build
    3. UBUNTU Linux


    Discuss how cool I am.

    You misread the last line. It says discuss how cool I am, as opposed to 'discuss how much I suck'. It's ok, you might be tired or you just read too fast..

    I'm with IWAARS6. I used to have a quad boot. XP for games and faffing, 2000 for more serious stuff and Redhat and Mandrake just for kicks. I couldn't actually really work the latter two particularly well though.

    All I need is OSX.

    Why all the extras? If I was that bothered, I'd have bought a new Intel Mac and loaded shitty Windows and OSX onto that.

    That seems a bit indecisive.

    Then again, I know nothing about computers.

    Yeah, I found out last night that the coding can be a pain sometimes. Sudo this, sudo that.. eh, whatever. I just thought Beryl was k00lb34nz.

    All I need is Windows Vista. But, I have XP as a backup partition (just a clean XP install) if I ever want to format my other partitions and I have Linux to use as a completely seperate Operating System.

    You suck. And not just because you have 3 OS's.

    Always friendly ^^^

    Anyways man, I now have Suse and XP on my laptop. Hopefully from thursday i can delete XP and get my WLAN to work on it (thx Uni people)

    And by the way "sudo" means you enter your root of linux. From then on you can basically alter the system settings

    PS:
    Is that youtube video actually on Ubuntu ? It looks a bit nicer than Suse

    Oh no, I did read it right... and no editing my post so you can big yourself up.

    You have Polish roots; more apparent than mine. Therefore you suck to the power of 6, whereas I only suck to the power of 2.
