Got this new fad about installing debian with winxp on my laptop. config is a Dell Inspiron 9300 with 1gig RAM, 80 Gig HDD wireless, bluetooth et.al. Kinda guess that the ubuntu version is easier to install, had already downloaded ubuntu and burnt on a dvd, but kinda thinking that it might be fun with debian..
target is :
1. all hardware systems up and running -
a. including all the special keys+
b. wireless lan+
c. bluetooth so that
i. i can use the bluetooth headset (logitech). hmm..
d. and also get my logitech joystick
e. mousy all working and
f. my creative webcam.. :)
g. mah pharos GPS hardware (I got it with microsoft streets and trips.. kinda interesting to have the microsoft logoed hardware work with linux.. just for the kicks..)
a. chat clients (basic guys I exist on) -
i. yahoo-with good ol video
ii. gmail - with audio
b. voice recognition and tts (Text To speech - not adding any 'i's inbetween u sickheads... :) )
c. office s/w (dont wanna do vpn from linux.. kinda pain in.. u know where)
d. lemme think.. yeah any open source GPS software folks??
e. GAMES.. LOTSA of them...
f. semagic/something equivalent for putting up mah deadly dumb posts.. ;)
ok Limited imagination - enuf for the time.. oh yeah - gotta remember to call up microsoft again to re-activate my microsoft office XP :( arrgh... pain in the...*%^$%^$@$ )
ok this calls for a 50-50 division of the harddisk.. ;) 40 gig each dude??
back '98 I'd have laughed at the wishlist!!
currently got jigdo working and downloading - remember - jigdo runs better from cmd..
