    Re: Linux applications not good enough

    The problem with putty is that its popularity is amplified due to the lack of built-in support for ssh on Windows (where rdp access is mainstay), for tunneling purposes Tunnelier is probably a...
  3. Re: Hearing the Win 8 sirens - save me from the rocks!

    There's no need to overreact. The good thing about Windows systems is that they tend to have much longer lifecycles. XP is still very much viable in certain scenarios even today, and you can expect...

    Re: Linux applications not good enough

    Linux simply doesn't have the advantage of the well-established Windows ecosystem of third-party programs that started since the shareware days, while the slip-ups concerning the latest Windows 8...
  6. Re: considering upgrading from 10.04LTS to 12.04LTS

    Mint would be worthy of serious consideration if you do not wish to contend with the 12.04 LTS and want to enjoy the same Gnome 2 experience that is light on system resources. I am still on 12.04 but...
  7. Re: Nasty articles on Ubuntu. Is the privacy an issue with Ubuntu ?

    It does make for a suspicious pattern taking into account the way various events have unfolded since the very beginning of the Unity debacle, and of course leads to further division of the user base...
  8. Re: To Ubuntu 13.04...or, not to Ubuntu 13.04 - Complete Disappointment

    Well, direction has vastly changed between 10.04 (which runs much faster than 12.04 even on an old machine) and 13.04, now given their different position in the market, they kind of decided that...
  9. Re: To Ubuntu 13.04...or, not to Ubuntu 13.04 - Complete Disappointment

    I didn't say it is, but it does explain why the exodus has already begun at 12.04

  11. Re: To Ubuntu 13.04...or, not to Ubuntu 13.04 - Complete Disappointment

    Unity was a path of no return, and the primary reason for the mass divide/exodus after 12.04. Many people on the current LTS will have no viable upgrade path and have no choice but to turn to other...

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Generally, it is more advantageous to run Windows natively and Linux in a VM. Last time I checked wine is still pretty fickle with a bunch of programs that only work on a particular version, or not...

    Re: 13.04 Not worth the trouble

    Majority of people either have the wisdom not to upgrade or are too proud to admit they got lucky again and survived the new round of problems, which may not have manifested in their entirety.
  15. Re: Canonical's decision not to supply Ubuntu on DVD anymore

    Local institutions should be the ones responsible for physical distribution, which was never cheap in the first place.

    Mate is so minimal that I found it a good fit on Arch as well, much better than the bloat that is Gnome 3 or Unity

    Turns out I was the only one who voted yes? But there's a good reason for it, if a rude awakening is needed for Shuttleworth and co not to take the community for granted, better sooner than later.

    Quite the contrary, LTS releases tend to have the most comprehensive community support, especially for critical issues like driver support. For the minor issues that are unresolved in LTS, they will...
