I have been waiting for this for a long time, so now i am going to crisin it with mindless bable because now that its finally here I have nothing good to say.

So I am going to let this thread be the just general get started thread. Come in, say hi, tell the guys how cool you think it is that we now have a general forum. Finally a place where I can talk linux with people who actualy care as opposed to the people who just smile and not and go back to thier windows.

O man I love my Powerbook. I use it just like your windows station thaigrrrrl, for e-mail and documents and what not. Ironically, the only microsoft product I consistently use anymore is Mac Office. What ever.

My old HS had nice computers, some dumb jerks desided to light our media center of fire so that pretty much wiped out all the old ones, so insuance got us all nice new Dells with XP. Worked pretty well. Except for the nasty filter, but thats ok, we just tunneled everything to a buddy of mines server at home.

Round here at the UofM everything if Solaris. Almost all the labs are blade machines running Solaris, which isn't bad. There are a lot of labs running Debian to. Of course, these are just the CSci labs. The rest of the school is macs and windows.

What sucks about being in the dorms is that they wont let you host servers of any kind. So I can't use apache to access my files or anything like that. Luckily they left 21 open so I can SSH into my system. Everyone is envious of me because I run GAIM off my machine in lab wile we are doing homework. Works out pretty slick.

I just want to conclude by saying Macs rock. There really isn't anything you can do in linux that you can't do on a mac just as easy. Apache, ssh, programing, what ever. The GUI is slick, they are stable, and they are all around great machines. Linux of course kicks the apple off the cliff in price though. You can build a good linux system for a lot less than you get a mac. But hey, if you have the money, macs are a nice toy.
