I used linux as my primary OS for 3 months and I didn't like it (I ended buying a Mac), but now whenever I hear about Linux I want to use it again. I've already installed iPod Linux on my iPod, and now I'm installing Damn Small Linux on my old laptop, and SuSe on my old computer, and now i'm gonna have to buy a PS3 so I can install Fedora.

I think that's is pretty cool but how wants to spend $600 on Linux running console when I could by a normal pc that would probability rub it faster any ways.

I guess so that whenever you show off your PS3 you can be all like "Yeah it plays games, but it also can run linux!". I dunno, I think the point is another use for a PS3 once you have one, not a reason to buy a PS3.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
