    cdtech: Thanks for the suggestion, I tried uncommenting the cdrom, it didn't fix it.

    They also "force" GTK, GNU compilers, X11 libraries, Open Office Suite, Firefox, Metacity, and numerous other programs and libraries. You can't possibly expect them to make different versions of...

    Re: MacBook or Dell XPS 1330-1530

    I'm sorry, I'm still a little confused. Were the prices you posted in the first post the American prices, while the prices on page 2 are the prices in Mexico?

    Re: MacBook or Dell XPS 1330-1530

    If portability is an issue, I'd get the M1330. If not, get the M1530. Both are far better than the Mac.

    Re: Microsoft gives away developer tools

    Yeah, VS.NET is a good IDE. Linux has Netbeans which I think is just about as good. Eclipse is supposed to be good, but I've never used it.

    Re: Cutest Thing Ever!, give me a AWWWWWW!

    Very possible. I used to have a guinea pig and one day my grandpa brought his dog over. The dog like to chase things, especially their neighbors rabbits. It didn't do anything once it caught them,...

    Re: Nokia to acquire Trolltech

    I'm not worried, it's simple economics. There is a demand for an opensource window manager for Linux and Unix systems, if KDE doesn't deliver, someone else will.
  12. Re: Dell and Microsoft team up on (Red) computers

    Part of it is the publicity the charity receives. If Bill Gates donates x million dollars to charity, it won't even make the local paper, but if Dell and Microsoft release a new product line, it...

    Re: MacBook Air

    So you're saying it's a great product from a marketing standpoint, not a technical standpoint? I'd agree with that.

    Re: A thought about FreeBSD and Mac Leopard

    It's not that OSX can't run on other computers, it's that it is designed not to.

    Re: KDE abd ODF

    I'm getting the opposite feeling.

    If Microsoft puts OOXML in it's office suite it will become the defacto standard, regardless of what anyone else says. Even if it's a bad format it's still an...

    Re: AMD or Intel

    Intel's Core 2 Duos crush AMD in both price, performance, and power usage. I haven't seen any benchmarks that show otherwise. I'd get Intel. Intel compatible motherboards tend to be better too.
