ODBA Gold TWO

Thursday, September 16, 2004

Found another great operating system. Linspire is the software formally known as Lindows. This OS is a lot like windows but is Linux based and somewhat open source. You can install it on your windows system and dual boot or run it from a live CD. The price is $49 for download or $59 for CD shipped to you. This is a bother to me as Linux is free, but with this $49 you get a 15 day pass in the software warehouse that has over 1000 titles, most are free, to download and get yourself set up as a Linux user. Here Is a Free Deal (thanks Kevin Rose) you can use, and it does work! A Linux OS is a smart choice. If Windows fails, you can boot Linux and you are good to go. Linspire is a very easy program compared to knoppix, gnoppix, debian and others. It is a great way to get your feet wet with Linux!

The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty by Kitty Kelly is out. This same women trashed Nancy Reagan and others. She is a female Mike Moore, who puts out personal attacks without proof. He said she said stuff, with no credibility at all. What is a hoot to me is that the same democrats that cry over the best seller Unfit for Command, are cheering for this book.
Here’s what a few news org’s are saying: By Howard Kurtz
Washington Post Staff Writer Wednesday, September 8, 2004
“Gethers confirmed the accuracy of a report in London's the Mail on Sunday, which said the book contains, among other things, allegations of past drug use by President Bush. One of the sources quoted on that subject is Bush's former sister-in-law, Sharon Bush, who had a bitter divorce from the president's brother Neil. Gethers said Sharon Bush provided "confirmation" to the author but was not the initial source of the allegations. "Just because an ex-wife says it doesn't mean it's not true," he said. During the 2000 campaign, Bush repeatedly declined to address questions about possible past drug use, saying only that he had made "mistakes" when he was "young and irresponsible." He said he had not used illegal drugs since 1974 but refused to say whether he had tried them earlier. "Enough is enough when it comes to trying to dig up people's backgrounds in politics," Bush said in 1999. During the same period, St. Martin's Press withdrew a book that alleged Bush had been arrested on cocaine charges in 1972 after learning that the author had spent time in prison in a car-bombing case. The publisher's editor in chief later resigned.”
“The book did not pass muster at Newsweek, however. Editor Mark Whitaker said his magazine was given an advance copy for a possible story "and we passed. We weren't comfortable with a lot of the reporting. We will write about it if it becomes a phenomenon and looks like it will have some impact on the campaign debate, not to further publicize the reporting in it." “Whitaker said he learned late yesterday that one of his reporters, without his approval, had signed a confidentiality agreement for the advance look at the book. The agreement, he said, would have barred Newsweek from pursuing the allegations without Doubleday's permission. "The publisher was trying to constrain us in any independent reporting we could do on the book, and that's not a condition I or our lawyers would ever agree to," Whitaker said.
This last paragraph lets you know the sources are BS. Maybe Dan Rather will cover the story! The book goes like this; she said Bush did cocaine and he said Mrs. Bush sold dime bags of pot in college. Now that is a real story! He said, she said, blah, blah, blah. I take this as fact, to quote the Washington Post “During the 2000 campaign, Bush repeatedly declined to address questions about possible past drug use, saying only that he had made "mistakes" when he was "young and irresponsible." He said he had not used illegal drugs since 1974 but refused to say whether he had tried them earlier. "Enough is enough when it comes to trying to dig up people's backgrounds in politics," Bush said in 1999.” That is good enough for me.

Hey,

Easy on the coffee, that stuff will keep you all day.

I have heard a lot about this new Lindows/Linspire, but have never talked to anyone who used it. I take it from your post that your using it. So, what I was wondering is whether you had any problems getting everything to work with it (i.e., video cards, wireless cards, printers, scanners, etc.). And, the big question is home networking, will Lindows and XP work together on a home network (file/printer sharing).

Also, I noticed your loyal user of "Firefox" as a browser. How much does it cost and are there any disadvantages to using it?

Just curious, I am about worn out with micros. Its always: Service pack here, hotfix there, or restart again.

See ya.
