    "LINSPIRE"?!

    There's your problem. Right there.
    Get a real linux distro like Arm says.

    Linspire is fail for being like Windows.

    Linux is NOT Windows.
    Learn the difference.

    And real men use the CLI. [​IMG]

    In terminal:
    CODE./WiiFrii

    Switch back to Windows.

    EDIT: At linspire.com it says "Buy Now"
    ...buy now? Buy?
    http://www.ubuntu.com/

    And real men press Ctrl+Alt+F1

    bunch of elitist swines piss off. if the geezer wants to use linspire then that's his bag.

    i personally wouldn't touch it with a barge pole though. fedora ftw. [​IMG]

    I don't see what's so easy about Linspire.
    Looks like Fedora.

    fist off im not a geezer im only 28. and it is ,so far the only linux distro i have that has gotten no complaints from the wife and i realy like the linux feel and how its,well for the most part, free to use. I want to use the other more command based versions but im the "computer geek" and dont mind fighting with things to see how they work.


    Thank you for all the help but if its going to be an issue because you are all seasoned linux users than ill take this topic else where.

    im just tryin to use a OS i want to learn and use but allowing her to keep the feel that shes used to....

    Oh. Ooops. I said fedora. [​IMG]
    It's because you said fedora which made me think that. [​IMG]

    I meant openSUSE.

    Less bitching about OS, more helping.

    Try to use WINE, maybe the software can work there.
