Yeah, what a hoot, it cant even handle dos, as it needs Windoze
The paper wont be interested, they need Windoze advertising, just relax,
Linux is like the tide, and the tide is comming in.
2 days ago, I ran XmIRC on a Pentium and talked to myself via another
client on my box (Gronk). Nothing unusual here, so far.
Except the Pentium was connected to a Server(2.73 Bogos) running IPMASQ
(and firewalling) and the Server was in turn connected to an ISP.
Gronk is connected to the same ISP.
So I ran XmIRC on another box, via a firewall, from my box with X over the
net, via 28.8k modems.
I suspect the performance was better than "Booby" on a pentium,
in fact the performance was quite acceptable, once the XmIRC window popped
up (about 20 min!).
