comment How to run Texlive with SUA?
oh yea, sometimes its definitely easier to use the native windows tools. Its just I been trying to mimic my old environment bit by bit lately. After I got xming to work with SUA, I just pull x-applications from my remote linux machine all the time LOL

comment How to run Texlive with SUA?
well I could, but Im wondering if I am able to use SUA instead. you see if i am able to this would make my life a lot easier, I sometimes use kwrite to do grammar check on my tex file too, just easier to read i guess.

I want to be able to use SUA with it. (Use vim in SUA to type out the documents and compile within my editor like on linux). As far as I know, SUA cannot run dos prompt commands, and I believe latex for windows only has dos commands...

comment Is it possible to run Windows without GUI?
@JdeBp I meant by switching to a virtual terminal, I can terminate the wrong doing application that is causing my desktop to hang up to make my desktop responsive again. Sometimes msn makes the whole desktop hang up, and if u manage to shut it down, u get ur desktop back.

Yeah my other laptop is running opensuse11.4, which is great so far! My system is windows 7 x64 ultimate, all the drivers are from dell website, supposedly "designed for windows 7". The softwares I have installed include Visual Studio Pro, SQL server 2008 R2 Dev, Office 2007 (only word,excel,ppt, and access), and SUA. Browser-wise, just firefox. Nothing else is installed, I rlly dont see why this system can be unstable? Due to work-issue, I have to work on a C# project regarding to excel/access/sql server, hence windows is a must D:

Yeah, but sometimes not even the task manager will pop out I encountered this situation a few times, and there is nothing else i can do other than shutting down forcefully. But a few days ago, I happened to have my SUA bash shell open, and while the whole desktop hangs, wanst able to move any window, taskmanager wont come out. I was luckily able to type into that console So i just typed kill $(ps -A | grep access.exe), and it just shut down the access right away and my desktop was responsive again
