Which makes it even more troll-like.

Someone email this guy's wife:

Apparently he had a Big Mac in his hand whilst walking down the aisle, "for comfort"! :)

pilchards mistake was that he tried to install that cr*ppy mandriva, it crashes most peoples machines.

try ubuntu or just debian. The new fedora core 4 is pretty nice as well but has an older version of gnome and i think the kde version is 3.3 or 3.4

I think you'll find Fedora Core 4 has the latest version of Gnome

Nope 2.10 (although 2.10.1 is out now but that is only a minor bugfix)
Core 3 is 2.8

yup your right, just checked my machine ... I think it might have been Debian 3.1 that had gnome 2.8 from the LXF dvd.

That sounds more like it. I believe Debian 3.1 does use gnome 2.8

I like the fact that any tablet running Windows for tablet PCs had to be rebooted daily because of a memory leak, this bug has been going on unfixed for around 2 years until very recently.
