    Computer Questions

    I am curious to see what this group uses in the way of your favorite computer, operating system, and internet browser when you are just on the computer for sheer enjoyment. For me it is

    Toshiba Satellite, Ubuntu 10.10, and Firefox

    What do you folks use?

    Re: Computer Questions

    Yes, Jaretec, you are correct. I was not wanting to know what people considered the best or what they used at work or even to be super productive. I was curious what people used to read Fanatic or check out porn or even to play games. What do they consider to be their "FUN" system?

    Re: Computer Questions

    I use a home-built desktop and an older Dell laptop, depending on what's handiest at the moment. Both run openSUSE 11.4. I typically use Opera for my web browsing, but sometimes fall back to Firefox if a website is giving me hassles (e.g., flash acting quirky).
