Dinofly I'm now using Linux

Seriously I can't believe I surf the MBN while at the same time I'm installing Linux!

My XP crashed today so I decided to go with linux .

And it's not hard at all! (I'm using Ubuntu)

So, anyone know if I still can use Borland Delphi, or is there any other good pascal compiler with linux I can use?

edit: How the fuck does the mouse wheel work lol

Kylix is basically the linux version of Delphi not completely cross compatable though!

What do you mean by the scroll wheel?

How can you even start MSN when you can't get onto your harddrive?

And I guess you're writing this from a different computer?

as what I think you're talking about is the thing that pissed me off so much. In firefox write about:config in the address bar, on that put in the word 'middle' and a few options should be filtered, you change one of them...

Kylix is no longer supported by Borland. Besides its too old and buggy. The good alternative of Delphi is Lazarus ( I use it on my Ubuntu :P ), its free and covers almost 100% Delphi at compatibility.

Your MSN problem...
Go to Applications > Add/Remove Programs > Enter the root password (or your password, they're the same) > on the left hand side there's a list of types of applications. Look for 'Internet' > select the aMSN check box > Click apply.
It'll install and viola.
You can now use aMSN.

Your hard drive Problem...

A little bit more difficult.
Open a terminal by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal.
In there type:
Code:
fdisk -l
You should get a list of crap that you mightn't understand.
Just post it here and I should be able to help you.

Edit: Oh, and one thing that you should install is Beryl.
IMO and Chaos' too, It's better than Windows Aero!
There's more features than Areo can give you, and it doesn't require that many resources!

Lazarus is just a GUI on top of FreePascalCompiler (FPC). FPC is quite good. And you don't need to use Lazarus, it's just that it makes GUI development much easier.
