    Re: Today I met the creator of this site

    Did I say it does? What are you talking about? Matters or no, it is kind of curious that he abandoned this forum and created his own again.

  5. Re: Ubuntu advocates have LOST the right to criticize Vista

    I know, I just can't see why "reliable" in that sense would be desirable for non "enterprise" users,--that would be most of us.
  6. Re: Ubuntu advocates have LOST the right to criticize Vista

    Don't think LTS has anything to do with "reliable" performance. 10.10 is way better than 10.04 and 11.04 is better 10.10 (even though you have to wait about 3-4 months after Natty's release for that...
  7. Re: Ubuntu advocates have LOST the right to criticize Vista

    Yep, I am always 3-6 months behind. Natty is now in a very sweet spot. It is insane to update with Ubuntu's release schedule. The pattern is , just when one version becomes really polished and stable...
  8. Re: Ubuntu advocates have LOST the right to criticize Vista

    11.04 has turned out to be a very solid OS 3-4 months into release I am pretty sure that 11.10 will be great in a month or two. These OSes were released prematurely? Maybe, but there is no Vista in...

  12. Re: Windows 8 lets microsoft remove data without your consent

    I wonder what does MS consider "malware" (maybe torrent files?) If you run virus scans with AVs usually there is a prompt asking the user what to do with suspicious files before actions are taken...
  13. Re: Windows 8 lets microsoft remove data without your consent

    It is possible for compatiblity reasons, but not your data.
    Yeah, that it is MS is a very good reason to be concerned.


    So what kind of "discrimination" do you think would make MS deleting...

    To get Amarok to play mp3 you have to install the package libxine1-ffmpeg. For other players installing the restricted-extras seems sufficient but Amarok is peculiar that way.

    dapper drake? Are you serious?? It is long dead. Try to install a supported version (10.04, 10.10. 11.04 or 11.10) :) I don't even know that you can still get the iso.
