Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

SuperGamer-1 (PCLinuxOS P93 Game Edition )

The SuperGamer-1 is a modification of the famous and well respected PCLinuxOS distribution optimized for gaming. I will make this review brief.

.It includes 3d acceleration drivers, the underlying PCLinuxOS system, and several nice game demos.
.The Supergamer-1 dvd performed very well. I had no stability issues, even though I was running off the DVD only.
.The net connection and graphics automatically enabled.

.Sound was not automatically enabled. In fact it used the wrong driver for my AC97 codec on board sound.
.Nexuis was not playable on line because SuperGamer-1 came with an outdated version.
.Could not handle many of my favorite Internet-media file types including QuickTime and Windows Media out of the box.

In conclusion PCLinuxOS P.92 is great. SuperGamer-1(PCLinuxOS P93 DVD Game Edition) is not.

For the record, PCLinuxOS P.92 can handle many of your favorite Internet, office and media file types including Windows Media, Flash, Java, Real, .doc, .xls, .ppt, .mp3, .pdf, .mpg... well you get the picture. PCLinuxOS uses the Synaptic/apt system of package management that is so fall-out-of-bed easy, a cave man can use it.
