One of the LISHostees was having trouble with Evolution, a Linux email reader, so I thought it a good idea to actually check it out myself. It ended up my Fedora Core install was way too old to do much of anything to, so I thought it was a good time to give something else a try.
I finally got OpenSuse running, and it ain't bad. I shouldn't say "finally" because it really wasn't all that bad. It took me longer to get the CD/DVD/ISO burning to work on my XP laptop than it did to actually install Suse. For some reason I could only get CDs to burn properly, so I eventually just gave up and burned the network install CD and used that instead of trying to burn 4 or 5 CDs. I just couldn't get the iso to burn to a DVD on my laptop. Once I got the one CD burned I needed, the install took no time at all, no more than XP took when I did that on the box downstairs a couple weeks ago (we're a 5 computer family).
So, here I am, using Linux on my desktop. I spend a good 80% of my time on my Linux server, so it probably makes sense that I see if I can do it on the desktop.
I'll be just like Shoe in no time!
