    Next stop is a 128GB SSD hard drive.
    Love the Fedora 14 , have it on one of my other laptops , Fedora or SuSE for me , just a .rpm person , nothing wrong with .deb mind you .

    Same here.. I've tinkered with Linux on and off since Lindows but I never "got it" until I installed FC12 and really forced myself to make all the applications work how I want. I'm starting to somewhat understand how a certain program functions with the OS, not just unpack this and type this and boom your program works.

    Hey same here, I got into Linux with Lindows (later Linspire) and have since used Ubuntu on and off in test/play environments. Im going to try Fedora now though, want to play with as many flavors as I can get my hands on! BTW if anyone is looking to get some legacy hardware running again, check out Lubuntu. It uses LXDE as the GUI and runs faster on my AMD Athlon XP 2600+ with 1GB RAM than Win XP ever did.

    Once you get use to Linux , Winders will become actually harder , well not harder but not as intuitive .
    If we could get more programers to leap into the Linux camp with games and hardware I think it would take off . Google , is my hopes , will lure more developers to Linux in the near future , I believe the Cellphone is fast becoming a replacement for all Computer devices , if had a dock that I could dock my cell in and give me a screen size and keyboard as that of a laptop I would abandon coms and use just occasionally as needed , having one OS to deal with .

    Wow , Lindows , yeah that was a Linux nightmare , open root privileges , yikes !
    Thanks to Red Hat (Fedora) we have a file system of usable proportions , and SuSE for YaST package management (dependencies management) , I started with Corel Linux and then jumped to Red Hat .
    Ah the days of compiling your own kernel (SuSE made it so much easier when they devised a way to update the kernel without the need of compiling ) and chasing dependencies for a program , don't miss them at all .

    I've pretty much always used gentoo, but I just installed Fedora 14 a few weeks ago. It's way too easy.

    Thanks for sharing this ! I'm running F16 and I'll be installing VB as soon as I need to run EFI LIVE. I think this is so much better than dual booting.

    yes, no doubt better than dual booting, but the last few iterations of the Linux Kernel have been power hogs in my machines. Even ArchBang with LXDE runs hot as hell and kills the batteries in both of my laptops. I'm back to a clean install of Windows 7 and have zero issues. I'm somewhat disappointed but it is what it is, I don't have time to screw with this stuff like I used to.

    I found exactly the same thing with Ubuntu on my laptop, battery life was at least one third of the time I would get if it was running Windows.
    Need official EFILive help, please go here.
    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.

    People keep knocking Windows, honestly I dont believe they've used Windows 7 with any longevity if that's the case. Its much better on power and has a bunch of little tweaks here and there that really make it nice to use. Just wish you could Aero Snap different windows into the corners of the desktop instead of just left or right. Left or right is fine for screens up to about 24", above that with resolutions higher than 1080p it'd be great to snap to the corners to see 4 equally sized windows. But thats me picking at it ha!

    BTW my 17.3" Core i7-2720QM, 8gb ram, 750gb hdd, 128gb Crucial M4 SSD gets ~8hrs of battery life just web browsing. If I enable the discrete Radeon HD card its about 1/2-1/3 that, Intel's Sandy Bridge is awesome. Cant wait for Ivy Bridge in a few months...
