The Linux Experiment has begun….


Hey everyone,

I started my Linux experiment tonight. Currently, I’m writing this blog on Firefox, running on Xandros Linux (free-version). And, I have Kopete running, so I can keep in touch with my friends on MSN and Yahoo. So far, it’s been an interesting experience. I’ve learned a few things about Kopete that I like.
Kopete tells you when someone opens an IM window (called “Chat”) with you. Irregardless of whether they type anything or not. When they open the window, a message saying “ has started a chat with you.” And when they close the window, it says “ has left the chat.” This is something that I’d love to see in Live Messenger (MSN Messenger 8), but will have to wait for, I think.
I’ve got basic (and I do mean BASIC) access to my beta mail account. But, it’s enough for me to do the experiment. I’m still looking for an e-mail client that will connect, but I’m afraid that’s going to be a dream. So, for now, it’s all-good.
As I learn more about Linux, and especially Xandros Linux’s features, I’ll post more to my blog. But, between my work schedule and my finals at college in the next two weeks, I probably won’t have a lot of time. So, keep watching, to see what I’ve learned.

Patrick.
