Re: Windows and missing HD space

Re: XKCD version of linux?

you all seem to be assuming that XKCD's fanbase is full of tech-savy linux gurus. alot of XKCD is just plain old nerdom, we need to remeber the language nerds, the math majors, and science geeks. emacs, python, lisp, obscure distros and high- maintenece interfaces are not what they are looking for, ...

Re: XKCD version of linux?

Whatever the default browser, a good number of links in the bookmarks is a good idea. An xkcd search bar/app might be cool, too. it has to be firefox by default, but when you open it you get a message box: remember: it's just a browser!
