I'll do it.
Crossing my fingers that it will be as straitforward,
I didn't mention this... this Vaio, that I'm using right now btw, was in great shape. In it's time it cost $2500, and was loaded with lots of friggin software.. used by a huge Pub.Rel. firm... that usually used MAC... that might be why the lappy got no use... but they loaded it up with fancy graphic and business software... and much more...
I wanted to get around to figuring much of it out... even old sometimes has use...
But man, I was so frign off on ms..I just took an old copy of Gparted, and blew it all to hell.
Good riddens... so now I'm "Diving" in to Linux... I'm treading water... but I got time... and I'll be swimming in a couple of weeks i bet... even with this mad-cow that i got.
This cassandra also found my 2 usb ports and instantly allowed use of 2G flashers, so probably larger as well... before ms2000 couldn't recognize anything larger then friggin 256! Shoot, you can't find stuff that small anymore.
One favor please... would you check out the way I stumbled while partitioning my drive, and maybe give me an idea or two about how i should/might redistribute, and label, it for the new
Felecia Flux CE I'll be putting in?
And I'm gonna use this lappy for mainly writing(lots), communication, research, very little graphic or photo, but would like to listen to radio on line... (use that V?? software... forget name but three letters V-- ?) Would like a decent... DB, and WP pkg, but OO i think is just too big.
And I'm using PersonalBrain right now.. for GTD with mindmapping (project) stuff... fab fab free program... I'm hoping I'll find something similar, though prob smaller by necessty.
Any software suggestions greatly (!!!) appreciated? And when downloading apps from repoz, I'll see... say... 3 choices for.. say.. 7Zip... how do I know which one to use??
