    Re: Would you like to answer a few questions?

    - Talk to a linux/Ubuntu user before you dive in if you are not well versed
    - Not everything is going to work, do your research first

    Re: What was your first distro?

    First distro used was Peanut Linux. Tried Knoppix on a LiveCD but never installed.

    Ubuntu 6.06 was the first I started using on a regular basis and it became my primary OS.

    Re: Dell Commercial?

    I've never been able to find this section before.

    Amazing that the Ubuntu Inspiron 1420 with free OS is $50 less than the Inspiron with Vista on it. Is it just me that is confused by this?

    Seriously though, as was mentioned, more contrast is needed. The black text and blue links are lost on the screen, it might help to have a paler (not lighter) shade of green in the...

    Re: Google X, anybody still using it?

    It looks nice except that it goes to back Google when you search so really it is a pretty frontpage skin of the Google main page.
  13. Poll: Re: What kind of portable audio player do you have?

    I have a Zune, but it was free hence why I got it. There is no Ubuntu/Linux support for it (as far as I know).

    If I were purchasing, I'd go with a Sandisk Sansa or a Creative.

  18. Re: Anybody stepping back from Facebook now that Microsft has a stake in Facebook ads

    Probably not. I don't do a lot of facebooking to begin with and it provides a means of keeping up with old friends.

    If they took more of a stake (over 50%) I might start to reconsider. One reason...

    Re: Chain Reaction with Fire!

    That's awesome. But they should have added some Ferrous Nitrate or Cupric Sulfate along the way to get red and green flames. THAT would have been cool!
