“Martyr”

A little “nerd-off-topic”, but as I’m a big fan of Depeche Mode since the days of “Master and Servant” and “People are People” back in 1984, I’d like to mention that they recently released a new single called “Martyr” which is not featured on their last album “Playing the Angel”.

With “SuSE Linux 5.3” I gave Linux the first try. I just got quite familiar with Windows 95 and was up for something new. I didn’t really know what I was doing but the installation went pretty well – but no X-Server was working with my system… OK, that was it! …until “SuSE Linux 6.3”. …
