    Re: any point undervolting an Intel Atom?

    From experience -- no point at all. I tried it, and even with very aggressive settings there was no noticeable core temperature decrease or any improvement to battery life.

    Re: International Baccalaureate

    I still remember my first TOK essay topic: "Do our senses err?"

    It got me interested in philosophy and I ended up studying philosophy-related things in college, and later also in graduate school....

    This is true, but they also work great on tiny screens, for example on netbooks, since you can easily configure them to maximize all apps by default (with exceptions configured for apps that don't...

  5. Re: So I'm about to install Arch for the first time

    Unused ram is wasted ram -- it's much faster to read from ram than from a hard drive. That said, it probably makes sense to optimize reserved memory use, so that more ram can be used for caching...

    There are various branded versions of firefox in AUR, but you have to compile them yourself (easy, but it takes time). There is also a script that changes firefox icons and name for you without...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Other OS Talk, Good Decision or Bad ?

    It's a bad decision. It's a classic example of sacrificing an ideal and a noble disposition of generosity that used to go along with it for the sake of a short term, practical concern -- for a...
  8. Re: Sadly, Other OS Talk has been dumped from the Ubunty forum.

    Sorry, but this is kind of dumb from the forum management point of view, IMO. You can't really control what people choose to post, so it makes sense to try and "canalize" the generated discourse,...

  10. [other] Re: Organize data between differant operating systems

    It is by all means possible to share Firefox/Thunderbird data between different OSs, including Windows in Ubuntu.

    I could be wrong, but what you seem to be describing as "sharing data" is actually...

    Re: "Simplicity" as in Arch is bad.

    Arch's base is remarkably stable, IMO. As for everything else -- "Arch is what you make it." It is, by design, a DIY distro that merely provides you with raw materials, as it were. If it is...

    Re: Perhaps Linux isn't such a great concept.

    Why do we need to get to "mainstream"? I don't care about linux becoming "mainstream" -- I just need it to be popular enough for hardware manufacturers to provide linux drivers, that's all I need.
