Re: Slightly OT: bad rap for Fedora, and realistic effects

for that matter. Are there version of winxp that can not zip and unzip?

Maybe I'm thinking of win2k.  The point still stands: a plain ol' XP
install isn't goint to give you much joy.  If it'll open a ZIP, how
about DOC? PPT? Any MS Office file?  Or SVG,  AI,  PSD?  What about a
plain old PDF?

These are things handled by 'yum -y groupinstall "GNOME Desktop
Environment"', with zero human interaction required.

Oh no! I wasn't arguin' for XP. I just, was pretty sure that XP did. 2k sure didn't. And it sure can't do anything else by default that Fedora can. I'm a CentOS user, but I have FC6 on a laptop, and it runs well. I don't use office though, I'm an emacs user lol. I completely understand the point you're making.

Perhaps I should delete 'emacs' from this e-mail so there's no holy war. ;)

Sincerely,

Alex White
