Comment SuSE 6 (Score 1) 739

A total pain, as it was SuSE 6.0 (or maybe 5.0) and it took me about 4 days to get my NIC working. I actually BOUGHT the 6 CDs that came with it. I could hardly partition my drive and so I was afraid I'd loose my windows ... oh boo hoo! It's funny, I don't remember my first girlfriend's name...

Life on earth seemed to get along without this stuff. I was kinda half asleep when I saw the finale, but wasn't it a military/executive decision to leave technology? I do agree with StandardCell about separating the colonials into technology/non-technology. I am watching the series again and it's incredible all the things they tie in to the finale. It's like they knew the story, start to end, before writing the second episode!

I just skimmed the article and didn't see anything about the OS they used. I'm betting that if they ran on Vista, they primarily use IE8 on that system. And last I heard Vista actually improves performance of applications based on how often they are used. Would this speed up overall performance or only start-up performance? I wonder if this was taken into consideration.
