    Funny thing is, KDE project did that in KDE3: "konqueror --profile=filemanagement".

    Thanks Vim_User, for the explaination about systemd, and about the AMD.VN drivers.

    I just looked at the deps for systemd on an OpenSuSE 12.2 box. It requires a lot of stuff I would not expect of...

    Thanks John! I will try these things you describe - I definitely would like to run L4D2 on Linux instead of rebooting into Windows.

    With every new release Firefox looks more like Internet Explorer: can't hide the tab bar, no status bar, "paste & go", "paste & search", etc etc etc.
