The way my Linux experience has changed in just the past two years!
For the first time I have Linux on a laptop (Fedora Core 10) and am using it wirelessly at home, at local restaurants (with open wireless access) and in hotels while on pleasure trips! I also have an older version of Fedora Core on another desktop, currently sitting idle in a corner, but really use the laptop almost daily.
My experience with Fedora Core 10 updating itself has been good also; it searches for updates and offers to download and apply them just as well as any other Operating System I have used.
Two things that do not work or are presently broken in Linux for me are: DVDs won't play (this needs extra "codecs" I haven't had the patience to get), and my YouTube video have a weird reverberation or echo that make the audio very, very annoying. I wanted to add this story to let people know I think Linux is cool but not perfect! What computer O.S. is perfect? None.
