    Re: Ubuntu support duration

    You are right. I wasn't being very correct there. I take back what I wrote there.

    Thank you, varunendra, that was interesting to read.

  2. Re: My take on Ubuntu after a few days of using

    People's tastes are hard to understand sometimes: the other week, I read someone saying that he loves Windows 8. They'll proverbially have to pry Win XP (Yes, I've an old computer with XP still on...
  3. Re: My take on Ubuntu after a few days of using

    I find the way Windows does thing quite logical (let me not start about _how_ it does thing...). System files in /Windows, program files in /program files, user files in your own home folders.

  4. Re: Making sense of Linux/Ubuntu desktop systems

    As a programmer, you seem to know very little about GNU/Linux. I am just a "stupid" Linux user, I know zilch about programming, hacking, compiling, you name it :p, and I seem to know more than you (I...
  5. Re: My take on Ubuntu after a few days of using

    What, you mean one mustn't whine about it, because one already gets it for free?

    What freedom and control, if I have to get used to Unity (or get another DM or distro)?

    No comment...

  6. Re: My take on Ubuntu after a few days of using

    I am being sarcastic now, but I've read someone saying the exact same thing about Windows 8 - one just "has to get used to it".

    Is that what OS's have become about: "having to get used to it"?

    Ubuntu support duration

    I am reading that Ubuntu 13.04 (and Xubuntu, too) will be supported for _ONLY_ nine months.

    Why just 9 months? What after those 9 months? Installing (yet again) the new version? I thought one...

    You apparently haven't tried it yet :p

    A DMG is like a ZIP file in Windows or a DEB (or RPMs or tar.gzs) in Linux. Do you never download DEBs (or RPMs)?

    Hah, that's an easy one.

    Installing programs. Unzip DMG, drag file in the DMG to Program folder, done.

    Not even Synaptic can beat that (not even the CLI, for by the time you have typed apt-get,...

    Re: Why Linux Sucks

    We don't need standards.

    We need someone who/something that can speak on behalf of GNU/Linux.

    Linux is very much like the European Union. Was it Henry Kissinger who said, "If you call Europe,...

    Re: Missing Gnome..

    I would like to ask Mr. Shuttleworth if a change is always better. If Unity/Ubuntu is "better" (note my quotation marks) than Gnome 2/Ubuntu.

    As many other people, my answer is "No", of course.

    Re: Add Windows 8 to the Comparison Chart

    Just out of curiosity - how fast does Ubuntu shut down? And which version?

    Linux Mint ("Mate") - with the PC specs in my signature - shuts down in 2 seconds. I'm really not joking. Amazing :p...

    Re: Questions about Ubunut

    Long time ago I've posted, or even read, the Ubuntuforums.

  18. Re: So imagine Lucid Lynx (10.04) modernized with a newer version of gnome2

    "Mate" in Linux Mint 13 looks more like KDE than like Gnome 2. Why do they say it is based on Gnome 2--or are they talking of the program code?

    I lost "Lucid Lynx" when I mistakenly installed...
