    Still looks like KDE to me and software is gonna be a problem till (if) it gets going again.

    Does it still go through all the linux crap about "mount the CD" -- "you do not have sufficient rights to mount the CD" (root doesn't have sufficient rights???) --
    why couldn't it just have a play button like everything else in the world? mount is something animals do when they're.... well, that thing animals do.

    Grrrr at Lindows&#33;&#33; I just installed it in VPC 5.2 and there&#39;s no sound so every time I try to find a driver it takes me to a click and run page for hewlet packard print drivers. The Games are crap and again, it takes me to click and run and want&#39;s money. I registered for the free stuff and it says I don&#39;t exist when I log back in.
    Now it says I have no sound devices installed. I can&#39;t figure out if I should install generic SB 16 drivers or the host AC/97 drivers.
    And this stupid CD mount thing is still a pain&#33; My System driver disk won&#39;t run but I know for a fact it has linux drivers on it.
    ARRRGGGGGG&#33;&#33;&#33;
    Mandrake still beats the hell out of this thing.

    Because there complete idiots&#33;
    Linux/Lindows or whatever tries to go so far out of the way not to be like Windows that even very very simple things are difficult.
    That&#39;s Linux/Lindows in a nutshell.

    Mount...

    Lindows sucks ass. And any pillar in the opensource community will tell you that lindows is not even considered a valid linux distribution.

    Lindows software users can go to hell....................better yet, go back to windows...............l
