Well, school is starting fairly soon. I am sorta glad, it was getting rather dull not having anything to do but my latin for the summer (and maybe I can get a bit of help on it when school starts). I will miss hanging around at home but I am getting bored. Plus I will get the laptop back. I wonder if I ever really will learn to program Java and C? I sure hope so. I might learn a tad bit of C++ as I think most GUI's for programs need C++.
I have been playing around recently with the LiveCD
of Sun's Project Looking Glass
. It is a fun little 3D desktop environment written in Java. It is fun to play with. The CD is based on Slax (Slackware Live) but it is easy enough to use. It needs reasonably modern hardware. I wouldn't try it with less than 512 MB of ram (and a swap partion) and reccomend 1GB. I would also reccomend having either an ATI or NVidia graphics card (it comes with drivers). It is much cooler looking than Windows Vista's Aero, and OSX's Aqua.
