How can we, the Voters, tell the Presidential Candidates about this most important matter?

What kind of mass marketing style petition can we, the Voters who care about the failed Education System, put together to send to both Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama? To make this idea of every student who doesn't have a computer, own a linux powered laptop computer so they can access the internet for homework research and to create their own multimedia reports using OpenOffice and other such programs??? There has to be a coupon debit-like card with $300 to $600 that can only be used via schools and/or online vendors for the parents to purchase low cost linux powered laptop computers? But it has to be able to run Windows XP Home Ediition as another choice besides Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva, or Debian.

VMWare slowing down Fedora?

I installed VMWare on Fedora and it seems like Fedora is running much slower.

I used to run OpenSUSE with a trial of VMWare and everything ran great. I reinstalled OpenSUSE on a new machine but I had problems because it couldn't detect my video card. I installed the 32bit Fedora instead and was able to find my card. I bought VMWare (I need some Windows software for work) but it runs slow, access to the DVD drives is slow and running XP while working in Fedora is slow. This was not the case last year. In general, it seems that my Fedora is not as fast as it should be.

Anyone else having similar issues??

Delete a file with a "-" as the first character?

I have a file called -cfg.txt. I think it was created in the gui on a fedora core 4 box. When I try and rename it, I cannot. It keeps treating the - as a parameter, even when I try and do:

> mv \-cfg.txt abc.txt


>mv "-cfg.txt" abc.txt

Any ideas on how I can rename and cat this file?
