Audacious Winamp Skins

Hey! You know you can change to Winamp like skin in Audacious to make it look more like XMMS in the Audacious Settings

32-bit linux

Great radio cast on Slackware and it's history, I got my first Slackware with a book and 2 cdrom disks at version 3.2 with kernel 2.0.29. The antiX linux distribution has a current 32-bit version as well.

great show

Another great show! How about a podcast on how and what you listen to on internet radio streams. Keep up the good work!

Intrigued about slackware

I've never used Slackware, but have often heard about it. I have a 32-bit Dell Mini 9 that may be doing some distro-hopping soon. Also, you mentioned that you had proprietary wireless cards that required a Windows driver with a software that adapted it to be usable in Linux... could you be thinking of ndiswrapper ( )? I remember using it back in the day, but it looks like it only supports drivers up to Windows XP. Either way, thanks for the interesting episode!
