Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You have to use your brain. Best of luck.
I'm pretty sure it can be done, because I'm doing it right now. And I don't possess the encyclopedic inventory of Linux skills assumed necessary to get any basic functionality from a Linux system.
You do need to learn for to use Google. I guess you need to be able to read too. And then you have to be able to reason a little. And type a bit too.
But back to the point of the article, I think it's a great point they're making. I'm only using Linux now because I got sick paying for Windows. I don't think Linux (Fedora in my case) is the greatest OS ever, but then neither is Windows. It has more potential to improve over short periods of time. I've seen this in the year and a half I've been using it. Since I'm using a massively improved version compared to the one I started on (which worked well BTW) and I'm still using XP on my other system. I do have the luxury of two desktop computers, so I can keep one aside for games and the other for everything else. The functionality of the gaming system improves enormously because of this, and the other system improves by virtue of using a "better" OS.
And it's free.

Last Saturday we had our annual company Christmas party. It was a lot of fun as usual but it featured one special surprise. It turns out that several people had been secretly working late nights and into the wee hours of the morning preparing a special video for those at the party. They created a short teaser for Duke Nukem Forever.
After seeing the teaser we thought it was something we should share with all of you and while it's just a teaser, rest assured more is coming.
Tomorrow, Wednesday the 19th, around noon CST, we will release the first teaser trailer from Duke Nukem Forever. To tide you over until then, there has been a screen shot taken from the teaser and posted in our forums. Check it out here (http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showthread.php?t=29639).
Thank you for being fans of the game and for your continued patience.
We'd like to thank the people on the team that worked so hard to create this teaser and the friends of 3DR that helped create it (Jeremy Soule and Julian Soule, Frank Bry, Jason Evigan and of course, Jon St. John)."
