lulz!

Anyway, when they release it, I wanna see that Linux distribution that can be reinstalled in a matter of minutes, will not be scary, and won't bork half of the files! :P

Dosbox works in UBU.
If you can't get it running:
http://dosemu.sourceforge.net/stable/announce
Dosemu works also, but you will need a good PC for that one (needs more ressources than dosbox)
WINE can also run dosprograms.

*Edit
I remembered where I got my dosbox for UBU:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty/otherosfs/

Check your repos. It should be in there... or just download the tarball from sourceforge and compile it yourself.

Today is hard day for me, I have to finish 4 projects by today, and one of them is for my hobby's sake.So, uh I have been studyin C for like a day straight, and well, I need to use "them", but have no idea how, all it does is point to variables! And I don't know what I should do with that! Can somebody give me a few examples on using pointers in like a function or structure or something? "Them" make me cry :cry: ...

BTW "Them" = POINTERS :shame:

Well... Since nobody seems to be answering my questions,I will perform like the 10th new survey on DGF. Question:

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE APPLICATION ON WINDOWS?
2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE APPLICATION ON MACINTOSH?
3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE APPLICATION ON LINUX

note*
Just answer one of them.

Too many to really answer for Windows and Linux. I don't really use Mac so I don't have one there.

Don't really have a favorite.
Or it should be Unreal, if that counts.
Maybe EWB9 workbench.

Check your repos. They've got quite a bit in them. Explore and see what you can find.

To keep Larry a bit busy.
