  1. Re: Do you find your laptop's fan runs more with ubuntu?

    Yes. On an IBM ThinkPad T43 I had Linux Mint LXDE installed for a while and it ran very loud, and very hot. I thought it was just that the laptop was old and starting to breakdown, but I recently...

    Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) - Just because it was my first distro and experience with Linux. And everything on my laptop worked out of the box with it! Even my Sony DUO card reader which no distro after ever...
  3. Re: First Planet outside our Solar System to be Officially Declared Habitable

    Re: Five gadgets that will be dead in five years

    I have yet to see a single person anywhere read an iPad in sunlight. Can they really be used under bright conditions?

    Re: Five gadgets that will be dead in five years

    I don't think e-readers are going away in the next five years either. I love my Kindle and stare at its beautiful e-ink display almost as much as I stare at my monitor. Five years from now isn't when...

    Poll: Re: What should I upgrade first? CPU or RAM?

    A better CPU will do more for video/3D App recording than 8GB of extra RAM could ever hope to achieve.

    Poll: [SOLVED] Re: Should we keep the compiz cube in unity?

    Unity 3D is your idea of a polished product? I upgraded my graphics card so that I could use Unity fluidly, it was very sketchy on my 128MB Video card and runs OK on my Radeon HD 4550. Over all...
