My primary OS is Windows 7. I used Fedora for a while on my old computer, but my new one is fast enough I don't see any boost from using Fedora.

Well, that disabled it, but now the program throws a "Class not registered" script exception where it would normally open IE.

That's what I would have thought, but if I copy the URL into Chrome, it works exactly the same.

I suspected I would have to do that.

@terdon - I know that well, I used Fedora for a while. It just slipped my mind for a moment.

That's exactly what I'm having issues with: corporate software. Hopefully someone has a way to change it, though; a workaround of some sort.

comment What downsides are there to running an OS off of a flash drive instead of a hard drive (USB 3.0 and 2.0)
@DaveM - While speed is one factor, and based on the answers appears to be the most significant one, I was curious about anything on a flash drive impacting OS performance, not just read/write speed.

Oh, I was thinking about the read/write speed, but I forgot about the wear. Guess I'll probably end up just installing portable programs on it instead.

comment how to prevent local user from rebooting/shutting down when i'm ssh'd in?
Oh, I see. Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were questioning the concept of other methods besides a command line reboot.

I mean from the menu in the GUI. Or is this a distro without a GUI? I don't have a ton of experience with the various flavours of Linux.

comment Can apt-get be used on Red Hat systems?
Even if you could get it installed, would any of the downloaded packages work?

Does this apply to all methods of shutting down, or just the command line?

If you open a text document, type some stuff, and leave it open, won't it prompt to save it before it shuts down? If you type something like "I'm SSH'd in, DON'T SHUT DOWN!", he'll see that if he tries to shut it down.

comment How do I know what Steam is downloading?
I think if you hover over the Steam icon it will say what it is downloading.
