So what can I say about this OS. Its awesome and I never thought that one day, linux would be the main OS on my laptop. I’m currently using Hardy 8.04.1 and its been rewarding and secure. Some of the apps that I run includes: Miro, Virtualbox, Compiz, and Emerald. I have the mac look on mine and I also am running the network manager 0.7. Please be aware that linux isn’t for everyone and there is a learning curve if you’ve been running windows for the last 15+ years. Use at your own risk!!!
