I created this site to share my experience as a new, but no longer n00b, linux user.

The final thing that pushed me over the edge to make this site was the 64 bit Java plugin.
I think that it is full heartless that sun has not created a 64bit plugin yet. As you can see here it has been over 6 years that people have been asking for it and still, with the rise of 64bit personal computers (can you even buy a 32 bit anymore?) they will wait until the next release in 2009!

I remember that when Java was coming out it was touted as the language that was going to bridge all chasms and work on all platforms. Well apparently only on platforms that they consider important. I guess we just keep using IcedTea and be hostage to what works and what doesn't.
