I really didn't expect this to keep going as long as it has. 41 polls so far. That means we have almost reached the one year point with our polls.

 

Thanks for helping to keep things running. :)

 

 

This week, we are running a poll to see how many of our members have tried or are using Linux. I know there have been several people trying to get into Linux lately.

Uh huh. Around the time of Slackware 7 had just been released and.. uhh RedHat.. 6.1? was the latest thing around? That was around.. 1999 apparently, which is 6 years ago, but I voted:

Yup, RH9 on the secondary box with a KVM. I would use it more if I had more monitors. Unfortunately, I DO have more monitors, but I don't have the desk space. So I need a new desk. But my room's to small so I need a new room. Really, I just need to move. Then I'll use linux more... yeah!

 

Hehe, someday I hope to get an A64 for a dedicated gentoo machine and give that 64 bit linux stuff a shot!

well i stopped using it currently. i woulda liked to see how linux would run on my main rig, but it seems like i always get errors during install on any distro on my neo2 board, few members had that issue like me btw.
