I am wondering how many Linux users are there on Press F1??

If you run Linux can you answer me these questions?

What version of Linux are you running?

What web browser do you use under Linux?

What mail client do you use under Linux?

PLEASE NOflaming or talking about other OS in this thread, all I want to know how many Linux users are there on Press F1 & what web browser / mail client you use

Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird (Though Im about to try Konqueror with Gecko rendering engine, looks good!)

root@Stellar apt # uname -r

OS - Xandros 2.0 Standard Edition - kernel 2.4.22 (I think)
Web Browser - Mozilla FireFox 0.9.1
Email - don't use an email client

Use Linux at home around 80% of the time - can't use it at work as we have to be running Windows for support calls :(

Knoppix hdd install on one box.
Red Hat 8 on another.

Use Mozilla for Internet and email on them.

Have Mandrake 9.2 and 10 from DSE just iching to be installed.....

Another might be installed with RH 6.2, because I have just gotten an older Linux administration book. This will be good to learn some background info. Should be an interesting project on those wet spring evenings.

PS -Hope you are not gatthering info for a convicted monopolistic software company? ;)

PC1 - Database server/file server Redhat 7.1
PC2 - Database server 2 Mandrake 8.1

PC2 - Mandrake 9.1
Mozilla normally
If I did, Evolution - wonder why they haven't released Eudora for Linux (I use it on Windows)

Running Fedora Core 1

Use Konqeror, don't use a mail client as yet as I will be changing to Yoper soon so I didn't see the need to set up the e-mail.

cheers

Can't do that - we have 2,000 or so Win98 licenses to waste! :O

Depends what machine you're asking about. All my machines are running different kernel versions. My desktop:

segfault@airbus segfault $ uname -r
2.6.5-gentoo-r1

> What web browser do you use under Linux?

Epiphany

> What mail client do you use under Linux?

Evolution

I use a number of different versions consistently, though 9 times out of 10 it'll be a Debian box, a couple of BSDi boxes and a few other proprietary *nixes.

Think he meant distribution.

FireFox

Evolution or Thunderbird - depends which is annoying me more at the time.

Slackware 10.0, running Gnome.

Haven't bothered to install any browsers or mail clients - I still use Windows for that and nearly everything else, basically because I'm still trying to get sound through my soundcard and a few auto-mount things set up.

Not really a hardcore Linux user, either - it's currently another platform to test porting applications that I'm in the process of writing.

Dual boot Redhat 9 and SuSE9.1.

Main OS is RH9 - mainly since I still use this at work.

Browser and email - Mozilla 1.6 (upgraded from .9 supplied with RH9).

OpenOffice is the killer app that makes it all work for me!! My main OS at work is XP (also with OO).
