    Yes, a great special effects movie for it's time and the red robot is Maximillian - very evil.

    I was just talking about the Black Hole at work the other day. Loved that movie! Was the old beat up robot called Old Bob or similar?

    Just installed xubuntu on my desktop that I now have connected to my TV. :)

    Primary purpose is to watch DVDs, however, I'm really liking xubuntu! :D

    What exactly is the main difference between Ubuntu and Xubuntu, other than Xu... using X window? Sorry if I'm ignorant. :)

    It uses the Xfce GUI instead of KDE or Gnome, like traditionally used by ubuntu.

    Xfce uses less system resources, that's why I chose it over just ubuntu.

    so fan boy is being swayed by the dark side? jk :p

    Xubuntu (and ubuntu) is really good to use. I recommend downloading Boxee for it... (http://boxee.tv) you have to sign up to get it, but its worth it. Its like XBMC but a very nicer version... look into some linux stuff, you might enjoy it. (points at DIY server guide on bit-tech)

    take your screenshots in PNG instead of jpeg, you won't get all that crap around the text.
