Linux Style
So I was just thinking the other day that there really is a sort of look to windows or mac (esspecially mac) computers but you don't have that style with linux and I think we should. it'd help popularize the system if there was a neato looking style of computer that people could associate with it. Anyone have any thoughts on this or have any suggestions for types of computers? Or think that i must have missed the huge trend of linux computers shaped like venus?

"delete"
hi, I'm new and I have a problem. I want to paritition my hardrive, but, due to windows-related rapage (or threats of rapage), I'm thinking about getting rid of windows completely and just installing slackware 10.

Now, the question. When I boot using the first slackware 10 cd, I can use cfdisk to "delete" the windows partition. Does that mean that I won't be able to later create space for windows and install windows 2000? Can I install 2000 without having 95 or later on my system already? What exactly does "delete" do to a partition? I don't have much on my computer, becuase it's fairly new, so I don't care if I lose everything. Just, I would like to have windows 2000 alongside slackware, at least until I'm comfortable with linux.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've also posted this here, with more background: http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=computertalk

Western Digital 120gig
Seems like a decent deal after rebate for any americans out there.

I wouldn't know though, I'm a New Zealander. Just thought might be worth posting though *shrug*
