People are angry with Microsoft and its digtal rights dictatorship. Vista is garbage, rubbish, bloatware, crippled.
Have you switched to Linux yet? If so, which distribution?

Yeah, it has taken a while to get used to things, but I reckon it has been worth it! I have reclaimed my computer from the clutches of the Microsoft monster ... lol
It's great that there exist almost for every program a Linux version. But not games.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Yeah, the games are pretty dreadful - unless you consider X-Plane a game. It is the only flight sim for home computers which is approved by the FAA for training! You need a lot of space on a fast drive though; just the terrain files take up a whopping 60 gig!
Did I understand it right, X-Plane is the name of the game?

Yes, but I'm not sure if I would calll it a game. Older versions are free, but I think the newest costs about US$60. Pretty cheap for an amazing piece of software!

Cheers

Do you use it? Is it comparable with Microsoft Flight Simulator X?
lol .... yeah, not only is it comparable, but it is a lot more realistic (in terms of physics)! That is why the FAA approves X-Plane but not FSX. Both progs need pretty powerful machines to run well, and both are very enjoyable. Of course a good joystick (or yoke) and a set of pedals make it even better!

Cheers
If just the physics are better then it's comparable with MS flight simulator for me!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Wow, I wouldn't imagine that you use Linux. +1, man!

I use Gentoo now with 4 years of experience.
