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

    Really? Out of the box? If not then it's not Windows's achievement.

    Thanks.

    What if Google partners with Sun? It would be cool: adds by Google.

    Re: You know you're a geek when........

    When you unsubscribe to this thread because you've got far more important things to do than to proclaim your "geekyness" (or read how others do).

    See ya guys.

    [ubuntu] Re: Slow processor, decent memory?

    By reducing running services you would free CPU power, granted not the best solution, but it might help in a rush.

    Thanks.

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Netbook

    If you have the SSD version (8GB) then you will want to get an adapted Ubuntu for it (Ubuntu for portables, I think) because a full version, although it would fit and perhaps detect everything, it...

    Poll: Re: Fully functioning linux laptop?

    Linux works almost perfectly on my laptop (in both x86 or x86_64), the only 'problem' being the webcam not supported. I don't use it anyway so I don't care about it.

    I really pity people who have to rely solely on Vista, for me it is like traveling aboard a crappy boat you don't know when it's gonna sink.

    I got a spare HDD for my laptop and had been playing...

  13. Poll: Re: What kind of computer do you use?- Super Thread

    I remembered several answers I got for this question from other people I was giving tech support to (sort of):
    - ME - "What kind of computer do you use?"
    - Somebody - "See, it's a Pentium.."

    Nice dog there. I'd like to have a dog (or a cat), if only I had space for it. In Mexico it is easy to get either of them (for free too).

    Forget about source code at all. No doubt a bunch of morons would like to DRM it later one if they learn it can be edited.

    Wait!! Something like that already happens!

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    It could be worse: they could force you to use Vista.

    BTW, is anybody counting how many of us have made the switch? LOL.

    Thanks.
