How I spent my day

Installed Ubuntu 10.10, installed Debian Testing on the old Dell, installed Fedora 14 on another hard drive, but it won't boot. The drive is pretty much trash.

So, I'm currently running Mint 9, Mint 10, ubuntu 10.10, and Debian Testing.
Fun all around.

A day well spent! ":O}

I'm current with Mint Deian, Mint 10 and sadly just gave up on Fedora 14 as they won't, for reasons only Gizmo and Fedora understand, run my Video card in 3D and I'm addicted to my Linux toys!

Maybe I'll give UB 10 10 a look...downloading it now..

man, you all have too much time on your hands.
I would love to run Ubuntu, Fedora & Mint on a few of my computers, but I wouldn't know what to do with them.
I guess I would test some games on one, play movies/music on the other and run a server on the last....

Don't worry about not knowing what to do, just using linux for an extended period of time will give you more to do than you want.
