    Re: Tutorials Section Re-opening

    Your reply explains why it was changed in the first place. It doesn't explain why you're considering re-opening it again.

    Have all the disadvantages of the "old way" gone away / been fixed?

    What's the goal?

    With all due respect you're deluded.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on MacBookPro7,1

    It's not new hardware. It's a chip-set which is already supported in the Linux kernel, not a new device lacking support entirely, but a device for which there is support, but it's broken in this...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on MacBookPro7,1

    It's a flaw in the kernel which ships with the LTS release. Therefore it's a flaw in the LTS release.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on MacBookPro7,1

    It's a bug given it's a currently shipping device from a well known manufacturer, and we're shipping LTS CDs which won't work on it.

    [ubuntu] Re: 64-bit computer

    Just to clear up some misinformation. It _is_ possible to address more than 3.2GB on a 32-bit install of Ubuntu.

    Re: Ubuntu to make big announcement tomorrow?

    Because when many people test something that's not working, the developers get deluged with "It's broken" and blogs get flooded with "It's rubbish".
