One Step Closer To Linus

Well, at least Adinoto is brave enough to lend me his precious iMac G4 with 17 inch TFT. Thank you very much bro!

Following Linus' example, of course my first task is to "purify" this box by installing Debian Sarge on it. Piece of cake. Then X11 follows. Adinoto also gave me a good link to appropriate X11 config. He's good. I'm sure he can also easily repeat this Debianizing process himself.

I won't tell you boring story about how I install Gnome, Firefox, kernel source, and so on. Maybe if I found something interesting enough, I will let you know. Again, thank you very much, Adi. I'm convinced now that iMac is really good :p

Nooo, you are not following Linus' example at all. You are borrowing the machine from adinoto, right? If you want to follow Linus' example, you will need to convince him to hand over the machine to you :)

andika said...

wah, susah diceritakan deh, mesti coba sendiri

mwahahahahahaha

seriously, belum terasa anehnya / asiknya / bedanya

adinoto said...
