  1. Re: What you would like to see, changed or fixed in Precise Pangolin ?

    I would like the damn thing to be installable on my Mac Mini 2011 (the 5.2 model with the Radeon chip in it). Something no currecnt distro manages.

  2. Re: New Ubuntu Is Out Lets Hear About What You've To Say

    I am deeply disappointed. I have not even been able to make this install on my machine (though this is a MacMini5.2 so kind of a harder target than usual old style BIOS setups, and it has hybrid...

    Re: Google Music Beta vs Linux

    What I like about the Google Music approach from what I have seen so far is that rather than worry about how much space I use, it counts items. In theory I hope this means I can upload my FLACs...
  8. Poll: Re: Would you list a Free Software organization in your will?

    That seems to require me having anything to leave in a will.. If I did perhaps, but something like Project Cauă seems deserving. Helps Open Source, gets internet to the poorer parts of Brazil and...

    Actually 3 movies and at least 2 miniseries.. Javier as Roland, a good actor but he just doesn't look like Roland to me.

    Re: Linus announces linux 3.0

    And yet with the ever increasing 2.6.x releases you had companies claiming to ship 2.6 kernels, but being 7 years behind.

    Linus lies, there is something huge in 3.0. They finally fixed that annoying kswapd taking 100% CPU and making the machine unusable for up to double digit minutes issue.

    Re: Steve Ballmer Announces Windows 8 For 2012

    The more I think about it, the more I think Google are right on target with ChromeOS. Transitioning OSes is so painful that many companies are still on Windows XP. If you are going to switch, switch...

    I would be far less worried about Skype being owned by Microsoft than by Facebook who were also mentioned as potential buyers. I see Facebook having more use for Skype though.

    700 to 800 people will lose their livelihood in this move. The focus and joy displayed over the 30ish person Mono team being downsized is opportunistic and despicable.
