In my last post, I have been running both KDE and Xfce in virtual machines. After a couple of operating system switches (back to Ubuntu 7.04 again), I have found that using KDE is slightly different from using Kubuntu. First of all, KDE is the FULL KDE. Kubuntu comes with a slightly lighter-weight version, with personalized apps.
I tried installing gOS, the new OS being installed on computers at Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, I was unable to get the installer running with my RAM.
Now, on to something a little more exciting!
I found a flight simulator called YSFlight Realism. I will probably post more on it later, but here is a crash-course:
YSFlight Realism is based off the flight sim called YSFlight. This application provides over 200 aircraft (enough to keep me busy for a while) and has dogfight and free flight modes, with many different missions. I liked the YSFlight on Windows, but it is even better on Ubuntu! All you do is download the file for Linux, unzip (untar it?) and navigate to the “ysflightrealism” folder, and double click on “ysflight”, the executable. You will then be launched into the program.
