I got everything running well on Linux. I'm still getting used to it, but from what I've seen, I really like it. It's just the hassle of learning everything over. I'm not even going to TRY to put the internet up there until I convince my dad to get high-speed internet. (Haha, anyone have any good arguments for getting it? I've tried everything...)
But anyway, I still have so much more to learn, but I figured I'd just update.
