    Congratulations on your installation of SuSE It's a great distro, isn't it?

    Now you can play around with the other neat-o apps. Try EMacs or KDevelop...

    Cheers!

    You mean there are people who don't use *nix? You've got to be kidding me!

    Seriously though...I'm typing this from a red hat 7.3 box. My eight year old has a Mandrake 8.1 machine in her room. I have a FreeBSD and two Slackware machines in the house. The only M$ around here is a dual boot win 98/slackware laptop and my wifes XP/gentoo box.

    Linux = Love my friend. Glad you're here.

    FamStars&Straps: congrats to you!

    I know how you feel. It took me months to figure out how to install RH6.1 on an old Toshiba laptop. The HD was only like 200mb, so I had to choose wisely and to get X to work! HAHA took a couple more weeks of tweaking the xconfig file... pain in the arse, but feels good when you finish a project.

    Of course... I didn't spend months just on that. I would get fustrated/busy and put it away for a rainy day... then pick it back up and play some more.

    EDIT: 500th post! w00t!
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Heh...actually I had to give my laptop to a friends dad who had SuSE. He had to mess with it. I don't know exactly what he did, I'd like to know, but he fixed it and I'm happy.

    Anyone know of any other fun stuff I can do on Linux?

    Congratulations on your SuSE Linux. Its really a good distribution with many applications.

    Well, you could do the things that this site here has been posting over the last couple of years. Whats more fun than that? Security, networking, security, networking, security, networking. Not to forget the broad range of different servers that came along your distribution.

    Enjoy.
