    Okay, just for everyone's knowledge, Vista has this annoying habit of
    asking if I want to save a password. On my sites, I have several with
    similar domains and differnt passwords. Vista mucks them up.

    This - plus an annoying habit of locking up on a regular basis -
    decided me that I'd just simply go with SUSE 10.2 and create a VMWare
    XP machine. So, last night I painlessly installed 10.2 on my laptop
    (which went flawlessley) and am now up on KDE. Even my multimedia keys
    are recognized without any involvement by me.

    Nice work, Novell.

    Better luck next time, Microsoft.

  7. Please enlighten this n00b why said saving of passwords is so annoying.
    I find this a VERY handy feature (XP Pro)

    Yeah, after trying Ubuntu and setting the DPI correctly in Gnome (from 96
    to 85, which is my monitor's true value) I decided that I'll install it
    this weekend. Then I can *finally* use the true power of the AMD64 CPU.

    even if it askes for the same password over and over, and still you have to
    type every password you already save?

    Me Guest

    Ok, so how the double toothpicks do you pronounce it?
    I always thought it was pronounced the way it's phonetically spelled,
    which is with a long U like Dr. Seuss, but I have a friend that
    insists that it's pronounced with a long E like "Suzie"
    Which is it?

    ROTFL!

    Keep in mind, I'm now indemnified from teh lawyerz at MS who will sue
    your ass for those so-called patents.

    Of course, I'd like to have someone actually show me software. If they
    can hold it up in front of me, I'll believe in patents. Until then, it is
    just copyright...

    I tried Ubuntu...

    http://www.perfectreign.com/?q=node/56

    ....gave it up after about five minutes. Wasn't refined enough for me. I
    like to use my system, not constantly have to tweak it.

    No, it would be a good feature. In fact, I use KWallet. The problem came
    up that it would auto-fill the wrong password on my sites and wouldn't
    let me override.

    Very odd, that Vista.

    Glad I could upgrade to Linux.

    I pronounce it suu-see. According to Wikipedia, it is "SOO-za", loosely
    "SOO-sa" in German. (Keep in mind it was a German distro prior to Novell
    taking it over.)

    Here's an official source:

    surely, you don't think the MSFT lawyers will let a little LAW get in
    the way of a good lawsuit, do you?
    did everything work out of the box? did you have to add any third-party
    sites to get certain patented codecs, etc...?

    impressions plz...
