    biggest i see on f150s here is 35s .... yes you see plenty of super dutys doing the super high lift with rubberband tires ... but last month in havasu i saw just as many southern cal trucks doing the same thing

    now can we get back to the content of this thread .... why come into the "technology" forum to talk some shit about peoples speech.

    yea this is the most popular one

    http://www.ubuntu.com/

    i only ran into one problem so far running some shit called "restricted extras" so the os would play mp3s and stuff of the like ... and thats cause my dumbass has never run a unix terminal before and didnt know that to hit "ok" if a window pops up i need to hit the tab key, then hit enter once its highligted.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    i really liked ubuntu, but unless you like grub, dual booting blows . Only bad thing about "linux" based (they all are) os's, nothing is compatible with the stuff i use for work and school.

    i wound up ditching windows entirely

    I haven't had ONE problem with windows 7. I also am quite a computer nerd. However, not nerdy enough to stick with linux. I have a ssd, and with all of w7's trim settings, i can boot into windows just as fast as ubuntu, linux, os x, etc...
