Hi Rykel ,

          How is the wireless on the centrino-based laptops? Wireless is
always the topic at the #ubuntu on freenode. And also Nvidia?
Should be fine... I myself is using nvidia , geforce 5500

Great!! Next time pls update us on the autopackage news :P I have been
following it for a while but somehow I have not seen any support by a
major program such as flash/nvidia/java where they are needed to install
on multiple distros. I think autopackage will fit them perfectly.

Basically , I started playing with linux in sec 2 , 7 or 8 years ago , and
I joined LUGS (Linux User Group of Singapore) when I was in my poly. I
also joined my poly's , ngee ann , linux group and together with LUGS , we
started "Linux Day" or "Opensource Day" for all the polys we can contact
and also helped them to form their own user groups. I myself gave a talk
on one of them.

After I left my poly , I went to work as programmer/sysadmin in one of
local companies. Currently , I am on the exco team of the LUGS and after
seeing how Singapore is not represented on the wiki , I put it there and
requested for this list.

I have handled most of the distros including sles,rhel and so on and on
... but ubuntu is my fav of course :P
