where do you start?

rubbish games, hair, clothes, colour coordination, cars, tv shows, hardware, electrical goods, shops, porn, no internet - the list is endless :P

Dunno why I like it so much. I guess it takes me back to being 15/16 again, starting my first job, having my own money for the first time and wondering what machines I could buy. 20 years later and my money's not mine anymore (mortgage, kids, bikes, cars etc) but I still find myself wondering which ...

Will it continue?

..after back to the Eighties has run its course? Will a 'Back to the Nineties' feature start? This section is the first one I turn to when I get each mag, and is easily my favourite.

A gamesTM one is long overdue though...
I thought the first one was amazing. I still use it for reference now. Is there going to be a second one?

Just a GamesTM Anthology 2 please. The first one was excellent so the same thing with Imagines better design style would be FAB
I'd much rather have that, tbh.

It's £5 for stuff we've already got. I might get it for the continuity of my collection but my cynical side is smelling cash-in. The publishers know the niche market won't be able to not buy it. Like waving heroin in front of a smack head.

I liked all the Back to the Eighties features. They're still my favourite.

There's SO many times since I started serious pc work, that I've said to myself 'should have bought a Mac!'

I used to bore people with Digitiser. People who had zero interest in anything even remotely videogame-like, let alone bizarre, irreverant and peurile rantings on teletext. The looks on some of their faces when they were reading were magic. None of them ever had a clue what any of it was about. Digi...

Re:

I was also a Mandrake fan for many years and only went away from it because of the Automount problem they used to have when you put a CD in. I stopped here to browse a while on my way to the Linux forums and your reply caught my eye. I installed Mandriva 2005 from cd on my old pc today and I'm havi...

I've spent the last couple of weeks in the company of Slackware, Damn Small Linux, Mandriva, Suse, PClinuxOS and Ubuntu. I've been somewhat of a distro glutton, but I've finally plumped for Mandriva 2006. Simply for ease-of use and it's the only one I managed to get a clean, first-time install on. L...

So how does that work? Do you configure Linux to detect wireless network settings, or do you have to set up a new account with AOL? I'm still very green with all the Linux gubbins. :oops:

I toyed with Suse 10 then opted for the slightly easier Mandriva 2006. I'm dual booting my (this) XP pc. Last night I managed to install the Nvidia drivers from the command line environment (which was scary) and it seems to be running smoothly. I'm a bit disappointed to find Linux wont 'see' my AOL ...

Ahh! that's more the like the Retro-Gamer forum of old...

Populated by members whose only purpose seems to be dismissing out-of-hand the comments and opinions of others. Keep it up, guys.

who uses Linux?

I've just bought two Linux mags, each with a different version or 'distro' to install. If I install one of them, is the process reversible? will I still be able to access all my existing stuff? Can I dual-boot?

Does anyone else here use Linux?
