    [ubuntu] Re: Looking for remote file server options

    FreeNAS is a great option, but I chose to run a full Debian system instead for the following reasons:

    [ubuntu] Re: Changes I'd Like To See In Unity

    Don't know if you saw my post earlier about the Zeitgeist blacklisting tool that's now available. I think that if you install Zeitgeist again and just use that tool to turn it off completely (there's...

    [ubuntu] Re: I don't want Chrome

    Well, let's be clear here: If the update manager is offering you updates of Chrome, then Chrome is installed on your system. It is not installing Chrome, it is updating it. You apparently have not...

    Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    It takes a big person to admit when they're wrong, so enjoy your chablis and hold the crow. I just didn't want people downloading #! and then being disappointed that it doesn't have Xfce 4.8. It is a...

    Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    Um. You are still misinformed. And stubborn, too.

    I don't know what screenshot you looked at, but Mint uses the testing repos (which only got Xfce 4.8 a couple weeks ago, so perhaps they took the...

    Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    Er...I believe you're misinformed. Crunchbang (which is what I use) uses the Debian stable repos, which have Xfce 4.6. Linux Mint uses the testing repos, which now have 4.8. I upgraded my #!...

    Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    Enjoy it! I use Crunchbang Xfce personally, but the Linux Mint version comes with the latest Xfce (4.8) right out of the box. Xfce is an excellent DE, on a par with GNOME.[/QUOTE]

    Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    Agreed - just use one panel and hide it automatically and you're saving MORE space than Unity does.

    [ubuntu] Re: I don't want Chrome

    The reason for the questions (along with the helpful advice) is that Chrome is not part of Ubuntu's standard software and it will not install itself. So you must be misunderstanding or misstating...

    Re: To many people bad mouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    It's great to see that you kept an open mind and tried Gnome 3 as well as Unity. And it's admirable that after you changed your mind you were willing to share that with others. I agree with your...

    [ubuntu] Re: I don't want Chrome

    Your post perplexes me. First of all, Lucid does not come with Chrome (it comes with Firefox). Secondly, as far as I can tell (having never used it) mediatomb has nothing to do with Chrome either....

    Re: Gnome Shell (Mutter) Vs. Compiz

    I also was amazed at how smooth Gnome Shell is and how little RAM and CPU it uses. It uses less RAM than my Xfce Debian system! I really like Compiz for some systems, but I think that the Unity devs...

    Re: I hate Unity so far...

    This +1

    I'm not currently using Gnome Shell on my main system because it's not 100% stable on Debian yet and it's still not customizable enough for my liking (I'm happily using Xfce 4.8 instead)....

    You are lumping everything for which there is a legitimate privacy concern (iOS, Facebook, GPS tracking) in with Zeitgeist, and you are just factually incorrect in your assertions. I would defend...

    [ubuntu] Re: Changes I'd Like To See In Unity

    So why use a journaling file system then - that keeps the same data! The focus on Zeitgeist is about paranoia, not prevention. Most of the things that people say that they're concerned about have...

    [ubuntu] Re: Changes I'd Like To See In Unity

    That was me who posted the link about Zeitgeist's upcoming blacklisting feature. The whole Zeitgeist privacy issue is flat-out silly as far as I can tell. All it does is index what you launch on your...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Is anyone else thinking of switching to another distro

    I agree. I've never quite understood why everyone raves about Mint's themes, and I always remove the resource-hogging Mint Menu on any Mint system. But their systems in general are well thought-out...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Is anyone else thinking of switching to another distro

    Well, to be honest, I think that Mint's Gnome 2 release is a lot better than Ubuntu's. Compiz is certainly a whole lot less buggy. If I wanted to use an Ubuntu-based Gnome 2 distro, that would be it....

  21. [SOLVED] Re: Is anyone else thinking of switching to another distro

    Oh - well then I think you just want to start with Xfce 4.8 and then (if you like), you can add Gnome apps easily. You can set Nautilus to be the default file manager (although the new Thunar is...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Is anyone else thinking of switching to another distro

    That's the only thing that I've also noticed is better when using Ubuntu: A lot of developers only offer Ubuntu deb packages or PPAs. It's not something that I have to deal with a lot, but it does...

    GNOME 3/Shell is fast and well-designed. It lacks customization options and it's not ideal for all users and workflows, but it shows a lot of promise. Unity is a crazy, resource-hogging mismash...
