    [ubuntu] Re: Thinking about moving to Ubuntu

    As far as battery life goes, I have not performed any testing between winXP and Ubuntu, but just by observing, I'd say my battery life is alot longer with Ubuntu.

  3. [all variants] Re: Netstumbler for linux (kismet doesn't work with my card)

    Would aircrack be a suitable alternative for you? I don't know if you need a gui app or not. I've only barely messed with it, but seems it should do the trick (and then some).

    I'm not sure if this will work for you or not. It got mine going a while back. I'm running on Intrepid, so I'm not sure if there'll be a problem with this on Karmic Koala. Just my 2 cents. ...
