Re: Missed Linux :(

its such a pain .... cant believe i was a windows fan 2 moths ago It depends on what you're using it for. Some games still run a lot better on Windows than they do on Linux.

Re: Screen flickering

Never install that kind of thing from a mfr's site. Or drivers. They may work but they are usually buggy and/or the wrong versions I know that sounds stupid to newbies used to WIndows but this is Linux and it's different.
Hmmm ... thought thats intels official website :?
