Time Event
New Laptop
I am having a problem finding a Unix-like OS for my new laptop (Compaq Presario CQ50). The only Linux distribution that I have seen that came close to working was Pardus. With Pardus I had sound and wireless networking, but I couldn't get any video driver to work other than vesa. I have yet to try Solaris. PCBSD would go into the installer if I used x86, but not AMD64 (common problem with all unices). I would prefer to use a 64bit OS that can support a dual core arch... but if I must use 32bit that's fine. I really just hate Windows Vista, and Compaq/HP has not made XP drivers available. Further more, I love GNU/Linux and because Linux has not worked on this laptop, I have begun looking into other Unix systems (mainly BSD and Solaris).
