    in the spirtit of fair competition there should be no problem if Microsoft bundles Virtual PC with Windows.

    Hey, if the Linux folks are allowed to add anything in their distribution, Microsoft has every right to add what they please to Windows.

    Fedora(Redhat) is not easy to install. It doesn't recognize and provide drivers for a lot of the periphal equipment. I'm on my fifth day and I still can't use my printer and sound board. My mouse is anly partially useful. It seems that anything associated with Linux is larger in size. I would like to use it on my computer without having to supply a root password everytime I try to do somewthing. Am I doing something wrong?
