    Just install Mandriva, Comes pre-installed and works out of the box. This way you get a better Linux OS and a media center too.

    Moovida is very unstable. I had to remove it. :roll:

  • Bob

    Also had some stability issues. I am sticking with mythtv frontend and backend for now. If only it had a decent music player!


  • Lazza

    Better OS? Nice, stupid distro war.
    Mandriva is good, definitely. But Ubuntu is excellent. Did you ever heard about a system that just works? That’s Ubuntu (or a lot of other Debian-based), not Mac. :)
    C’mon, enjoy Linux as it is, don’t try to fight your friends. :wink:

    Every body acknowledges that life is not very cheap, but different people require cash for different issues and not every person earns big sums cash. So to get good mortgage loans or sba loan will be a correct solution.

  • QuinnHeather29

    All people deserve very good life and home loans or just auto loan would make it better. Because freedom relies on money.

  • RuthHicks18

    This is understandable that cash can make people disembarrass. But how to act if someone doesn’t have cash? The one way only is to try to get the personal loans or just bank loan.

    I had got a dream to begin my business, nevertheless I didn’t earn enough amount of money to do this. Thank God my dude advised to utilize the business loans. So I used the short term loan and realized my old dream.
