    Re: De-weaselizing an RIAA press release

    Yes, the lawsuits are heard in civil courts. That's when people are downloading or are uploading without profiting from it. However, selling "pirate" copies of CDs, I believe, is "criminal...

    Re: Why do you use Ubuntu and not other distros?

    I don't remember how I wound up here exactly. I think Dapper came out and I was tired of rebuilding my Gentoo installation frequently, so I switched. I'd already been using GNU/Linux for two years,...

    Re: What if Windows was ... Good?

    At first, I used GNU/Linux because I didn't like Microsoft. Now, I don't like Microsoft because I love Unix-like operating systems, as well as the communities that surround them. In short, even if...

    Poll: Re: Most important open source software

    I'd say the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) is most important. Without it, development and packaging would be extremely difficult at best.
  6. Re: Linux Foundation calls for 'respect for Microsoft'

    Microsoft grows because of marketing and politics. Free software grows because of technical merit and community collaboration. Why should we respect a group that excels only at things about which...

    Re: An observation about all value of FOSS

    I quite agree. Free software has a lot of real killer apps. I actually think a lot of the most powerful ones are console programs like vim, screen, and ssh, not to mention bash and friends. I'm...

    Re: Fun "Trusted Computing" Quote of the Day

    Another really excellent way to avoid viruses, malware, etc., is to use GNU/Linux, *BSD, another Free Software operating system, or, to be honest, anything other than Windows. Unfortunately, TC will...
  10. Poll: Re: Do you have *buntu-desktop installed right now?

    I have plenty of hard drive space and use most/all of the default Kubuntu applications. There's no reason for me to uninstall kubuntu-desktop.

    Re: The true cost of linux.

    PatrickMay, I can understand where you're coming from, since I've been there myself. Things started getting really busy for me around a year ago, and I needed an operating system that wouldn't take...
  14. Re: Ubuntu could definetly have a more appealing name, don't you agree?

    I guess having all the vowels be long u's is a bit awkward. On the other hand, I agree that the meaning of the word fits the project perfectly.

    Re: New Twin-pane file manager -- Pygoscelis

    I'm a fan of Krusader, and I like how Pygocelis looks. It took me a while to get Krusader configured the way I wanted it, though, and I thought I had pretty logical preferences, such as having sync...

    Re: What do you call it?

    In spoken communication, I vary quite a bit on this, but in writing I use "GNU/Linux" 99% of the time.

    Poll: Re: Vim users: GUI or command line?

    I use the CLI version on my Kubuntu machine because I'd rather do that than use a GTK application in KDE (I'm really particular about such things, for some not-very-good reason). To be perfectly...

    Re: What do you use to play your music?

    Amarok. This became an easy choice after I switched to KDE.
  20. Re: I just got told to use a "real" operating system

    Their problem is that they're using an inferior operating system. :)

    Seriously, though, you should try telling these people who don't think GNU/Linux is a "real" operating system that a large...

    Re: Why is Thunderbird 'uncool'??

    Same here. I find Evolution's calendar component too buggy. Thunderbird is good for e-mail but I want something that integrates well with KDE.

    On another note, discussions of any type of Free...
  22. Re: Which is the fastest browser? (the shocking truth...)

    I think it's worth pointing out that Mouse Gestures can be created and configured globally with KDE. In Kubuntu, at least, there is a built-in gesture set for Konqueror that is disabled by default. ...

    I'm guilty of typing "ls" in Windows/DOS command shells. For some reason, though, I tried to compensate by using "dir" in Cygwin. :confused:

    I prefer KOffice because it's faster, integrates well with KDE, suits my needs well, and is being developed very actively.
