    [ubuntu] Re: MS Outlook Exchange server in Ubuntu

    OWA is very bias towards IE. It does not look correct on other browsers. You can make it look a little easier to read if you install the MScorefonts but as for the folders, rules etc, they are...
  4. Re: Why OpenOffice is not being used by corporations?

    This is exactly what I was going to put in. In my office (large bank), Opensource is frowned upon as they need to have a support agreement that can be legally backed up. Normally that is with the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Everything is sooo slow !

    If you've done an essentially clean install, do it again. Wipe the machine and go again. Something may have corrupted during install.

  9. Re: Can u understand this sentence 2 ?

    Understandable to me.

    Step 3 is a run-on sentence technically, but it gets it's point across. It is easier to understand then half the stuff I read from English born individuals at times!
  10. Re: VirtualBox is great..except it doesn't see my ipaq

    No, the install cd would only work if the vm saw my ipaq.

  11. Re: [SOLVED] HowTo set up EVDO card or usb enabled phone(CDMA)

    Yes, it was browser based. However, I find it difficult to believe that it would strip half the speed off in firefox than IE in windows. But I will give it a go!

    I spend a fair amount of time fixing things (or rebooting). It's not constant. But Firefox will freeze "darken" regularly and take out all instances of it. That's a drag. A lot of websites don't...

  16. Re: Looking for some software or a web based app to do RDP

    If they are windows machines, they do have the option to ask for remote assistance. It'll punch a hole in the router for the session. I don't know how to get it to work with Linux though.

    Re: Huge Windows attack?

    So when Linux starts gaining the popularity of Windows, do we not think that worms will be created for Linux? It's only safe now because it's not in the limelight.
