No compile love here? DL the source and build it my friend. :P

I have vista installed on one of my boxes here, I am not very pleased with it. As soon as I installed it, fresh install! The system booted then it crashed!

I've had a sucessfull Vista and Xp install, Vista and Xandros, and the latest Kubuntu.

I am not a big fan of KDE, I prefer gnome. Also, how is Xandros?
it was fine on the lappy, but with no internet at home, and the fact it was an older version, it was ok.
