I'm Canadian and I use Ubuntu. So I guess that proves trevelyn right.
I also use Debian, FreeBSD, Windows, Dos, TRS-80 Basic, Amiga, Commodore BASIC, and many others.

My spare computer (Athlon 64 3500+ w/512mb RAM...Pitiful, but that's why it's not my main PC anymore.) is running OpenSuSE with KDE.

What's this "lynuxx" I keep hearing about? All you hackers, your crazy toys. The government is going to stop you, you know. I'm over here paying a good two hundred and some dollars for my DOS; why can't you kids do the same? Get a real job. Support the family. When the new Pentium comes out, I'll show you whipper-snappers a thing or two.

Linux allows you to double or triple the amount of p0rn you view, its a bit like having an orgy. Only that you're not but rather alone in your parents basement. :nonsense:

There are too many distributions. My only limitation is time. Not even space. Space is virtually unlimited as there are no ties to the previous. Complete and total obliteration to the last partition is every day just about.

So far this week I've played with:

Server Side:
CentOS
FreeBSD

Desktop Side:
ARK (Again. Because I just fucking love saying ARK and playing tetris while it installs.)
SuSe 11.0
Fedora (Went back to it like an abused rape victim goes back to her boyfriend. He loves her, she says. He can change, she says.)

On my list is now:

Mint
DesktopBSD (Actually using it is more correct. It's sitting on a virtual machine on my big gaming rig)
WNLA 2.0 (Because I finally got the link for it)

So in short, fuck you, Linux and Unix. Fuck you both respectably.

It's called Compiz Fusion. I found it very easily in Ubuntu (just look in the package manager). Also, while your getting the cube, get the Compiz addon called Atlantis 2 - it puts fish in the cube. The package for that in Ubuntu is called compiz-fusion-plugins-extra btw.

That is freakin' awesome, beats the cube gears anyday, though I wish the fish were a bit more realistic. Thanks

1. Go to "System," then "Administration" and "Synaptic Package Manager." Search for and select the file named "compizconfig-settings-manager."

2. Install the file named "compizconfig-settings-manager."

3. Click on "System," then "Preferences" and finally "CompizConfig Settings Manager"

4. Check the box labeled "Rotate Cube."

5. Go to the lower right corner and right-click on one of your workspaces, select preferences, set the number of columns to four.

6. With your mouse middle-click and hold somewhere on your desktop and viola!

Mine doesn't do that. If I change it to the cube it will only allow two desktops to work. No matter how many I set it to.

Do you have both the Desktop Cube and Rotate Cube checked and the Desktop Wall unchecked? What's your graphics card? Are the proprietary drivers installed and activated?
