Now why v3:

  • I love to hack around
  • Was not satisfied with the image transitions (none to speak of) and love the transitions in the Picasa screensaver in Mac as well as Windows — somehow was not able to run the picasa screensaver in ubuntu / xubuntu …
  • Installed Windows XP – the slideshow worked nicely, but the other functions stopped working, networking was extremely slow, was unable to backup using Time Machine, blah blah blag
  • Thought I’d install windows server to get the file server to work – it still refused to work with the Time Machine, and my printer stopped working as HP did not have device drivers for windows server.

So – now what in v3? Have been thinking – since I have installed so many operating systems on this laptop, why not install OS-X – maybe Tiger or Leopard.

Intend to work on it over this week – will post an update once its complete (fingers crossed). Any tips welcome….
