KISS (Keep it simple stupid)

I find that the tech world is getting more and more flashy (and no I don't mean Adobe flash). What ever happened to simplicity and effectiveness. Just look at Windows Vista. It has a lot of eye candy its all fancy but how easy is it to get the job done? It also just runs slowly. All of that fancy stuff is bogging it and you down. Even Apple has falling with Mac OS X. I find it difficult to get to apps with out putting them in my dock. I also find shutting down a bit annoying to. You know what I say to you big software developers? Keep it simple stupid. Make it elegant as long as you don't slow it down and make it hard to use.

I got the laptop to work! I used Linux Mint. The only problem is that it runs very slowly. I going to try Xubuntu on it.

The battle between me and the Sony laptop.

Have you ever tried to push the same poles of two magnets together? Well if you have that's how I feel. One of those magnets is Linux and the other is a old Sony Vaio PCG-XG39. I have so far tried 2 distributions. I have tried openSUSE, Fedorah, and I am as of now trying Linux Mint. I have a fresh CD of Linux Mint burnt (The first one was defective). I did get openSUSE installed but it just hanged there when I booted. The laptop for some reason does not like DVDs so the DVD for Fedora did not work (I did not use a live cd because the laptop is to slow). Well, wish me luck.
