    I've watched a few and so far I think this rocks. I just wish I could save the videos and bring them along on my laptop. Freebee video training. Not alot of that around for Linux, is there? Smiley

    I did it and recieved the email seconds later. Something might have blocked it from reaching you.

    I had no idea that anything like that for Linux even existed. Tongue Out

    I don't think you will really get Linux videos as it is a kernel rather than a full OS. What you may eventually get is a video for various systems based on it (RedHat, SuSE, Ximian, Mandrake etc). There is not really consistency among the different flavours (apart from the fact most include the GIMP and Open Office).

    A video on using Gnome or KDE and there accompanying development tools may exist eventually.

    You do get more freedom with Linux than Windows though (hence the large variety of distributions - which are really just collections of many Open Source products). If you decide not to get support from RedHat, but still have their RedHat desktop you can still get support from someone else (like Novell, IBM, etc) - ultimate support and features for Windows is down to Microsoft.

    I have more freedom with Windows as I know that the people working on it are making a unified effort to my computer easier to use, faster and more stable and secure rather than trying to compete amongst themselves by developing variations of the same programs of which the source code is accessible by terrorists.

    Did you use a Hotmail address, by any chance?

    As soon as I tried reading the claim code email in Outlook 2003 (connecting to my Hotmail account), the message went instantly into the Hotmail "Junk Mail" folder!

    Same thing happened with the fulfillment (shipping confirmation) email!

    The program must be writing the email headers funny... 'cause Hotmail thinks it's spam.  LOL

    If you have a Junk Mail folder, try looking there... if you have some other spam filter, try turning it off...

    The claim code email took about 30 seconds to hit my Hotmail account Smiley
