WinZip on Linux?
Is there a form of Winzip that I can use on Linux systems? I have a file I DLed from a windows based cpu. But its a winzip file. Ive been searching for a Linux alternative that REALLY works. If anyone knows of something. Please let me know. Thanks.

2.5.62 config options
Is there some reason why almost every misc option is enabled in 2.5.62's config? It's almost as bloated as a Redhat run-on-anything kernel.

Technically, they're not, but most boxes which don't have a Meta key allow you to use Alt as a substitute, and, let's face it - almost no box sold today *has* a Meta key.

BK tags
Does anyone have an idea why 2.5.54 is not tagged in Linus' bk tree?

Re: Kernel security
The problem is with the cryptography aspect of the kernel, you couldn't then legally export it out of the US for example.

Go back to sesame street and learn your alphabet.
<b>M</b> is for <b>Meta</b>
<b>A</b> is for <b>Alt</b>
M-x means to hold <b>Meta</b> and press x.
Pressing Alt and x would be A-x.
Alt and Meta are <b>NOT</b> the same key!
