Long time Linux user, started with RH 7.3, then 8, then 9, then FC 2, 3, 4, and now 5. Professionally a Unix System Admin and C++ developer. Now retired. What do you want to know? So far 5 is the best of the lot. I use it for my desktop. I haven't run M$ for years.

this post brought to you through FC 5.

we run FC 3 on production web & e-mail servers where i work.

i like it.

if you're new to linux, FC 5 is good, but look into Ubuntu also.

Holy smokes... 3gigs for the DVD version! ;)

This better be worth it...lol, only an Hour and 15min left. The server I'm connected to only lets me download at 129k. So do the math how long I've been lettin this download! :) Reminds me of when I downloaded Open Office over a dial up connection. :)

are you using WEP,WPA, or WPA2 encryption on your router?

i was using a wireless card with an Atheros chip, and couldn't get WPA or WPA2 to work.
