HP TouchSmart tx2

I am a not so proud owner of an HP tx2, and a major pain it is. It came preloaded with Windows Vsita, and a "free" upgrade to Windows 7, available upon request. The laptop/tablet is heavy, has a poor battery life, and heats up faster than a toaster.

HP tx2 is pretty small ( 12" display ), easy to carry around, with an optical drive ( yes, I do use it at times ), and linux compatible hardware ( Touch screen does work, though I have borked something here ).

I have accidentally zeroed the disk,, and lost a fair bit of data. Fortunately, I have had backed up data on an external drive, which I have to swift through.

xchat-gnome 0.26.2

I am currently one of the maintainer of xchat-gnome, and working slowly towards releasing 0.26.2 ( https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=602311 ) .

Fedora 13, With Xorg 1.8.x , GNOME 2.30 and "fixed" nautilus

With release of GNOME 2.30, nautilus has refeverted to browser mode as default. So long spatial mode.

In Fedora Xorg is based of udev, rather than hal for automagic hardware detection.

Added Note : I have noticed Totem remembers the last played position

Fedora+Gnome keep getting better with time.
