    Thank you all for the help.

    I didn't mean for this to go
    off subject but that prism-
    break URL is interesting.
    Thanks.

    But yes, I was inquirying
    into Linux cuz of security
    reasons. I understand it's
    much more secure & the
    info here has helped.


    And MikeyD,

    "....the only TRUE way to stop
    NSA surveillance is to stop using
    the Internet altogether.
    "

    Boy, would that be a harsh
    life or what? We've become
    so depended upon the Net I
    can't imagine w/o it anymore.

    Thanks folks.

    If you're referring to meshnets I'd love to see them grow, but don't see them ever reaching mainstream without either the backing of a big company with $$ to invest (which will most likely kill the meshnet "dream" because the company will need to find a way to make money off of the project) or a way to streamline the process of connecting/setting up a node.

    To be honest, I am only keeping a windows partition for gaming. Windows will always be the gaming platform for the very reason that DirectX will never be ported on Linux and pretty much every game I play requires DirectX. Sure, OpenGL is making massive steps and Linux is starting to get better games, but Windows will always have the monopoly. I like to game with other people online via Skype and they of course are running windows. I am not sure if Linux uers and Windows users could even game together online - to my knowledge I don't think that is possible.

    I still keep Windows due to some software that are not available in Linux. Example would be tax software, and software for my DSLR camera and camcorders.
