    [ubuntu] connected to VPN server... now what?

    I may be way off base here, maybe I am not understanding what the point of a VPN is. It was my understanding that connecting to your VPN will give you a secure way to expose ALL of your network to a...

    [all variants] Re: Effective RAM size not recognized

    [all variants] Re: Effective RAM size not recognized

    I know that you said your computer supports up to 8GB of RAM, but are you absolutely sure about that? I am on an IBM Thinkpad T60 right now which has 4GB of RAM installed in it. It has an i915...

    no one is demanding anything, least of all customer service. I'm in a minority of one apparently so this conversation has obviously run it's course. Apparently I am the only person on this thread...

    Re: why so much schism?

    No, once again you are missing the point, and bordering on trolling. Unity is fine if you like it. I personally don't, and I don't care for Shell either. I would probably find them tolerable if...

    Re: why so much schism?

    no Haqking, I'm not complaining that I can change distros or DEs, I'm pointing out that I HAVE TO in order to regain functionality that used to part of the Gnome Desktop's appeal. The number of...

    As I said, I paid for my copy of OSX. I purchased Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion all from Apple directly. Apple could certainly sue me or hit me with a cease and desist order, but I doubt...

    Re: why so much schism?

    I agree, KDE is a prime example of what I'm talking about. There aren't 15 different versions of KDE, there are effectively 2. There is Trinity, which I already addressed and is for the most part...

    I've been around for just as long, and we clearly have differing view points. However, there is no reason why our different preferences are necessarily incompatible with one another. I don't view...

    I fail to see how my preferences are incompatible with yours. If I had my way, Gnome 3 would be perfectly capable of offering you and I the desktop that we would like without the current...

    Re: why so much schism?

    And therein lies my problem. Ubuntu is essentially turning it's back on it's long standing user base and their preferences in favor of pushing their brand on emerging markets. Granted, from a...

    not exactly, but close enough for government work I guess. I want the robustness and customizability that Gnome 2 had in Gnome 3. They never should have released Gnome 3 with LESS functionality...

    Paddy, I am speaking solely on the state of Linux on the Desktop, not embedded systems, smart phones or tablets. What happens to Gnome 3 does not affect ATMs, wristwatches, or Android phones, so the...

    No, as a matter of fact you can NOT. There is no Global Menu support for Xubuntu since 11.10. And your suggested solutions of trying other distros is precisely what I am against. Not only that,...

    I don't want to see Gnome 3 diluted by being forked into countless side projects without any real direction. I also don't want to see Gnome pigeon-holed into a way of doing things that doesn't work...
