test driving firefox 3

so i figured i would give it a try, so far so good. it does ‘seem’ much faster, and to have a smaller footprint, while i haven’t done any measurements, its likely to all be in my head.

i’m testing driving it on my slackware-current machine, and packaged it using volkerding scripts for the current firefox stable, in slackware-current/source/mozilla-firefox/.

then only relative script/diff changes were for the version change.

mozilla-firefox-3.0b5-i686-1.tgz

Yaah for best buy

tonight while browsing for what laptops are currently available, i see another encouragement. Best_Buy-OS, Best Buy actually has Linux listed as an available Operating System, granted all three machines are the new Asus – Eee PC Best_Buy-Eee.

give a Best Buy an encouraging pat on the back.
