So nice to have Vector back. got the latest Firefox in there, flash player, Mad Mike's Radio in VLC, everything WORKS. had some fun in the terminal and got Mutt to sync with my Gmail account. i dunno, i just love the more 'traditional' approach to Linux than Ubuntu's noob approach.
HOWEVER, still got the overheat bug. it appears to be distro non-specific. even the Dell gets VERY hot running YouTube. CPU usage skyrockets. it seems when RAM dips below 65MB remaining this happens. only, it hasn't officially overheated as it continued playing and didn't freeze, but Linux's application of Flash Player appears to be buggy in the latest builds. not sure why though.
