Re: Should I take the dive?

but my Dad actually has a RiscPC SA as his main workstation to get things done... I'm impressed. Does he do this in RISC OS or something else? RISC OS has plenty of good software to get things done and personally I would take RISC OS over linux any day. I am pretty much only using my Windows PC for...

Re: LGR - Tech Tales - What Happened to 3Dfx & Voodoo

My first Voodoo card was Hercules Stingray 128/3D but sadly had to revert my overclocked AMD 5x86 (486) system back to 133 MHz from the 160 MHz it was running, or otherwise the 3D acceleration would not work. It was pretty nice system still and certainly could hold its own vs early Pentium systems. ...

Re: Linux desktop recommendations?

My point is that many people for an example with Apple systems and OS X are still using the same software that works just as fine on Windows and some even better as the Windows versions usually come first and other versions are just put together with left hand and in a hurry. Windows is not the best...

Re: Linux desktop recommendations?

Real question is if there is anything on Linux that is not available for Windows first? Otherwise there is no real reason to use Linux at all and might just as well use Windows as Windows versions are most likely better in every way anyway. Linux is good for browsing the web and lot of things need t...

Re: Actual emacs user in the wild

My first PC as a kid was lowly IBM PS/1 with 386 processor, 2 megs of memory, huge 40 MB hard disk Small correction. Originally, PS/1 had just a 4.77 MHz 8088 processor, 40K of ROM. No hard disk. The XT had a 10 MB fixed disk, though. The 386 processor & bigger hard disks came only with the PS/...

Re: Actual emacs user in the wild

My first PC as a kid was lowly IBM PS/1 with 386 processor, 2 megs of memory, huge 40 MB hard disk and it had IBM DOS 4.0 installed. One day I accidentally loaded EDLIN once just to check what it was and I could not even figure out how to close that damn thing without the help of a power button. See...

Re: Your favourite hip-hop/rap?

Putting rap / hip hop music into any movie or game is total disgrace. Almost half of all new movies have been ruined with rap music on their soundtrack and another half by using those same rappers as actors instead of real actors. Why on earth they think some rapper can act if only acting they have ...

Re: Your favourite hip-hop/rap?

I absolutely hate rap / hip hop music and in my personal opinion the whole world will be much better place as soon we get rid of all that crap. Everytime I am in gym and people put rap music into background, it makes me want to throw the stereos out from the window as that is no proper training musi...
