Well I got that Austrumi live mini-CD (although the bast*rd sent it to me on a normal CD!) and I'm not that impressed by Linux - if Austrumi is a good representation of Linux at its most generic form. Linux looks good and all but I found it too abstract. I made a nice looking spreadsheet but there's...

What is Qbinux?

I've head this 'QBinux' mentioned so many times in other posts. I decided to google it but all it came up with was links pointing to those posts. Obviously it has something to do with Linux, but what?

Well I've decided to try out Linux so I bought Austrumi on mini-CD off Ebay the other day. It runs off the CD although I havn't recieved it yet to see how good it is. I have noticed that a lot of Linux users (most of em) hate Windows. Why do I note see Windows users hating Linux? Do Linuxers( :roll:...

Linux distro's

Hi. I daw sveral posts on this forum referring to Linux; how great it is... how Winodws sucks! So I decided to try Linux out for myself. I've bought Austrumi off Ebay. It runs off a mini disc which I think is pretty cool. What are some of the other good distro's out there and what are your favourites?

LOCATE x,y is not really right. You usually use LOCATE y,x ... y down and x across.

My friend is into Flash. I've been trying to convert him with no success over the past few weeks. I wanted him to get into SmallBasic first.

GUI Question

Hi all. In QB Express #13, one person in the GUI article said that he makes GUI's because he is sick of Windows. Is this saying that he wants a replacement for Windows? I do not understand how he could seriously consider a FB or QB GUI as a replacement for this OS. My main question is: Is it possibl...

I do to. When I make a game I don't usually go for good graphics (because I damn right suck at gfx!) and more for fun. A good ASCII RPG can be just as good as a RPG with graphics, its just how you want the player see the game.
