internal support for linux
I would like to congratulate the schools who have decided that linux is a more affordable alternative to Micro$oft. I would like to suggest that schools reject the students of the school's as a up coming resource. I am a student in a uk university, and it makes me upset that a university's computing administration where computing is a subject and linux has been installed that they don't allow students to help them make a good system. I would like to see an opportunity for me to show these people how good my knowledge is on the operaton of these systems. For example these people have machines containing a sound card. I can see that the support is available from similar machines they also have. but then I look at there system. I try cat /dev/audio, the problem I have had many times operation not supported. And using a 2.2 kernel I can't do anything to even attempt to correct the situation by adding and removing driver modules because they are using kdm, which auto loads the module. This is somthing that really pains me. I also ust found another bug in windows, if you have one selection in the audio properties the menu extends over 2 lines but the over all size doesn't change to compensate. You get a half check box, you click it and it overwrites the status bar. hehe, micro, soft again.
