Once more.. Im going to attempt the Friday Five..

Lets start with something simple

1) What's your favourite colour?
My Fave colour is blue (although I am colour blind so it could be orange for all i know ;)

2) What's your favourite film?
This fluctuates but at the moment it's Falling Down with Michael Douglas.
Now im not usually a michael douglas fan (his wife's not bad though ;) but his performance in this movie is outstanding.

3) What's your favourite possession/thing?
Again, this is subject to change but my favourite possesion WAS my BMW 535i which i had to give back because the finance company/car dealer..


4)What would you do if you won the lottery?
Well firstly, Id have to start playing the lottery. I think Ive only played about 4 or 5 times.
If i won the Jackpot, i wouldnt give up work. I can understand someone who's a dinner lady or a binman wanting to give up work but i like my job.
First, id do all the sensible stuff like buying a house, paying off family members mortgages..
then id do the silly stuff. Buy a few cars, have my own arcade, take some mates on holiday.
Then id pop the rest in the bank for a rainy day :)

5) What's your favourite food?
My favourite food is mexican. I also like pizza (who doesnt?), pasta, chinese, indian..

Yay.. my first full friday 5

time for some lunch i think :D

I've been playing with Linux a bit recently (RedHat 8) and I have to say I can't see what all the fuss is about.

Using the graphical install, its fairly easy to install but once installed, there seems to be lots of different versions of the same thing where Person A has developed one with one additional feature and Person B has made one with 3 less features.
3 user interfaces muddle it even further.

My overall impression is that instead of the innovative design you'd expect from something where anyone can do anything to it, what you actually end up with is a poor windows clone.

The Linux community is up in arms at the moment at the prospect of SCO enforcing their patents (on technologies they claim have been incorporated into Linux) and charging existing Linux users and distrubutors a licence fee. They say that SCO is trying to destroy Linux.

All they are doing is protecting their intellectual property.

Free OS or not, people have no right to rip off other peoples stuff.

I won't be switching to Linux on my own PC any time soon
