    Re: My own distro based on Ubuntu

    Yes, and yes. What niche are you trying to fill with yet-another-ubuntu-respin that hasn't been filled yet?

    [SOLVED] Re: LXDE X11 desktop environment

    LXDE is a great DE, I generally keep it installed alongside KDE when I want to use something lighter, or as the only DE on my laptop. It would be nice to see more distros offering good-looking LXDE...

    Re: Are you doing the "Desktop Two-Step"?

    I stick with KDE for the heavyweight, and LXDE/Openbox for the lightweight.

    Re: Need laptop advice - Mac vs. ThinkPad

    Apple laptops are pretty sweet, but yeah, not being able to replace anything in those new MBP is concerning. ThinkPads are infinitely upgradeable, and are great Linux laptops. I use desktop Macs all...

    Re: How many hours do you sleep at night?

    Sleep? There's plenty of time to sleep when you're dead! :shock:

    But seriously, 4-6 for me.
  6. Re: OS Talk! Your best light operating systems?

    Nice. I'm appreciating Sabayon 9 quite a bit, myself. I used to primarily stick with Debian (and Debian-based distros) and Arch, but any more, it's been Slackware. I'm really liking Sabayon, though,...
  7. Re: OS Talk! Your best light operating systems?

    Bodhi
    Arch
    Slackware (very nice, stable, and light with Openbox)

    Re: Can't decide which distro to try next

    I do a lot of testing and playing around with different distros, and I always end up coming back to Slackware. There's really just nothing like it. You learn a lot about Linux by using Slackware....

    Re: Best distro for beginners

    Seriously, nine times out of ten I think the answer is going to be Ubuntu, followed by Mint. They both really do just do it right in terms of accomodating the new Linux user.

    Beyond that, Mac OS X...

    Re: Minix OS installed but how to use it

    Hmm, if it's an X windowing based GUI, typing "startx" in the terminal should get you going, but I have no experience with Minix, so I don't know for sure. If that works, you would then have to edit...

    Re: Can't decide which distro to try next

    Crunchbang is very nice, you should definitely give it a try. It offers a live CD, so you can't go wrong.

    Yeah, I get Slackware and Gentoo. I already use Slackware on the desktop, and currently...

    Take the test! :)

    Mine always comes up Slackware.
  16. Re: When you try a new distro, what exactly are you comparing?

    I'm usually looking at speed, stability, and resource consumption. And then, package management/available apps, and robustness of the community around it.

    Re: Mageia 2 out. Anyone tried it?

    I got the old bait-and-switch: the live CD recognized my wireless card, and everything worked fine. Then, I did an installation, and WHAT?, it didn't recognize my wireless card, the driver wasn't...

    Re: The thrill is gone (Mac)

    At least Macs do have a distinct advantage over Windows, being based on BSD. I actually use the Mac terminal, which uses bash, quite a bit. But yeah, mostly the system is locked down and restrictive....

    Re: The thrill is gone (Mac)

    I hear you, and feel the same way. I began using Macs in 1986, and I use them daily for work (print industry). However, at home it's Linux on my ThinkPad, and the family uses the Mac. The only time I...
  20. [xubuntu] Re: Thunar, Gigolo and browsing network shares in xfce

    I don't use Xfce and Thunar myself, but it is my understanding that Xfce 4.10/Thunar 1.3 (?) is able to browse network drives. Can anyone confirm this?

    Having said that, I don't see any reason why...
  21. Re: Why do you choose Xfce over other desktop environments

    I like components of Xfce (Thunar, for one), but I don't usually choose it for a DE. With both Xfce and Gnome, I eventually get tired of their limitations. For a full-featured DE, I use KDE....

    Re: E-mail service that respects privacy?

    Lavabit is good, and they do offer IMAP support. However, Riseup is even better:
