Re: What was your first computer?

<t>The first computer I ever touched was my Mom's Apple Macintosh 512K enhanced which I only used a few times before I rediscovered it earlier this year.  The one I'd really learn something from was the next computer a Compaq Presario that came with Windows 3.1 and the Tabworks shell replacement.  W...

Re: The Humble Indie Bundle #4

<t>A common trend of the humble bundle folks is to release the source code to different games though not always consistently. You might just get a chance to make your own port if you'd invest the time. At any rate its a worthwhile cause to drop a few bucks into as they support various charities and ...

Re: We need Standards!

<t>All the documentation would have to be shoved into text files or minimalist html files. That way everything that needs to be said could be said in well under 50MB.

Re: We need Standards!

<t>I love Gentoo Linux for many reasons as well as many other minimalist distributions and personally I intend to use Gentoo on the Raspberry Pi myself.

Re: Crashcorse me.

<r>It is worth a try but you\'ll need storage space to fit it. The thing natively only has an sd card slot so you\'ll need to either A: Make sure windows CE will fit on the sd card, or B: Netboot windows.<br/> <br/> Honestly though I think Linux would be better in the long run simply because there i...
