  1. Well, the only person nearby who has any experience with Linux is a Slackware fanboy. He insists that all distributions are < Slackware. I actually enjoy Mandrake for its increased device support. First time in my experience with Linux distributions (Redhat, previous versions of Mandrake, Fedora) that I didn't experience problems with my integrated soundcard. I think Mandrake is excellent for people who don't already know Linux and want to run Linux. Slack is moreso for people who know Linux and want to run Linux. When you mess up in Linux, regardless of the distribution, you get beat. Mandrake chooses to beat with a pillow while other flavors beat with some sort of carbon rod. Either way, I thought that Mr.Slackware's opinion was that of the general populous. I like Mandrake.
  2. Ahh, I figured it out. It was a lamp on the computer desk. Thanks guys. I feel so stupid.
  3. I actually recommend C++ because most colleges consider that their main programming course. If you go to school with a previous knowledge of the language, you're one step ahead of the game.
  4. Well, if you want a Gamecuber on there, feel free to contact me. I'm not big on the X-Box. Maybe you want a debate or something happening? Who knows.
  5. This is a rather peculiar problem. I'm running Mandrake 10 (yes, I know it's crap -- But I'm not very seasoned with Linux). While in KDE or Gnome (it happens in both), the top left corner of my monitor's display continually shakes. I don't really understand it. Now, in writing this I am beginning to suspect that it is less of a Linux question, because now that I think about it -- this also happens while my system is booting up. When all of the lovely bios information screens flash by, I've still got the shakes. It doesn't happen in Windows for whatever reason. Any ideas? Btw, I'm not near my computer at this specific moment so I'll be unable to answer very specific questions.
