Well I went into the office today to try out my new speed demon. Kde 3.3 was up and running and looking great. Fast as I've ever seen it too. Only problem is now I have to figure out how to get my ATI graphics card drivers on there so I can use the dual-display capabilities. I spent like 20 minutes lookin around and decided it was a job for Monday. Lol. Worst case..I'll just add in a cheapo PCI card.
Update: Yup going with the new card, ATI doesn't support AMD64 on Linux :( Loosers..
