I think I'll start looking for work in other industries. This is getting ridiculous...

On the good side, I'm using Red Hat + Opera + OpenOffice. I know Red Hat has some of the same problems as Microsoft but I use alot of non-opensource tools and getting them working on other distributions is a pain.

Of course, I don't have plugins at all right now. I just don't do flash-enabled sites.

No, can't really be arsed. If I could, I'd be more likely to download a 2600 emualator, or something.

Oh, and since we're talking about Opera, this may be of interest: Opera for Linux with Plugins => http://www.opera.com/pressreleases/20010814.html

Pity... 3D first person pong. (FPP?)

Damn hard, too. The kind of thing that makes you yell "Son of a bitch!" and then crank it up again.
