the new cool

I just thought that everyone here should really check this out. It is something amazing that even Dell will ship installed on their systems to keep the cost low. Some say this alternative is even better than linux even the compact versions. You should all give it a try. click me

Hmm, the problem is that DOS is rather limited when it comes to doing anything much with a machine these days, short of low level hardware stuff.

It was actually a joke that my friend really wanted me to do. He and I found FreeDos about two days ago and haven't stopped laughing. The guy who is running the whole project is really into it. I think that small operating systems have there uses but I think he is a little overboard. He believes that you should use FreeDos instead of a GUI because there is no power in the GUI. I am really not going to go into the benefit of a GUI because I think we all understand the advantages. I just had to promote the OS because I had never seen anyone so emphatic about the superiority of an OS. I still hate Windows and love my Mandrake and can use OSX well because it's pretty. I didn't want everyone's opinion of me to crash through the bottom of the floor.

I still laugh at the fish everytime I see it. It almost makes me fall out of my chair.
