I like the bass to go BOOM!

Hi guys! I'm in the process of moving to another place, and I came across my little old p2 300 MHz laptop. I booted it, and it worked just fine. The battery that keeps the clock going is dead, but otherwise the old beastie worked just fine! I saw the login screen with the walking penguins (xpenguins), the see-through aterm terminal, and all those other things.

The old win 98 on it doesn't understand my external harddrive, but VL had no trouble seeing it. A p2 300 with 1 TB of harddisk! I never believed something like that was possible back when I installed VL on it.

the version is VL 5.0 RC2, which finally became 5.1 STD. It was just after I first started with Linux, apparently only 4,5 years ago. It seems like I used Linux forever Smiley. This version brings back memories, and the best thing is that the old Laptop still works just dandy with it.

Thanks VL!

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

ever since '71 ... I haven't felt any sense of direction in life

more seriously I've become pretty much platform agnostic

there isn't much I can do Linux that I can't do with Windows and vice versa

as long as I can read my vast collection of pirated scientific literature and troll the Internet I'm in good shape

I'm learning about neuroscience and more recently biochemistry in considerable detail

if your aim in life is to be an ethically questionable professional, OS choice is immaterial
