  1. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    Yup, most people already knew about this, especially since it is plastered all over the stamped CD jackets mailed out for free.
  2. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Let it remove the packages if you don't need them. Otherwise, there's nothing wrong with leaving them in there. The end of support notice means they're no longer supported (ie: compatibility and...

    Poll: Re: Linux Desktop Readiness Thread

    Your second statement is much more descriptive and not offensive at all. Your first statement was very offensive, and probably didn't convey what you truly meant to say (giving you the benefit of the...
  4. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Do you mean you can't burn it to a CD, or are you trying to do something else with it inside Vista? If you can't open it by your default CD/DVD burning app (or Vista itself), try opening it with a...
  5. Re: HOWTO: Enable your Wacom Intous/Graphire Tablet with Pressure Sensitivity

    Thank you everyone for helping with this! I currently use WinXP for working with Photoshop, etc., and am looking into getting a Cintiq 12WX or other Wacom tablet. It's good to know that there is hope...

    ellalan, awesome! It's always nice to hear success stories. You could always wipe that Vista laptop or dual boot it if you're daring enough. ;)

    Good catch coolen. I'd guess that he has a very dry sense of humor.

    Poll: Re: Linux Desktop Readiness Thread

    That view is short-sighted. No one has to force them to do anything. Most of the hardware drivers for the Linux kernel are written by third parties (open source communities) who either take existing...

    Original post:


    Have you tried stripping down your PC to minimum hardware to test an install (ie: mobo with default BIOS settings, CPU, RAM, one video card, PSU, one HDD, and one Optical drive)?...

    Yes, down with Vista! :) I'm glad to see others realize that Microsoft is a dead-end road too. I wouldn't hesitate to compare Windows to zombies; they both keep on dragging their bug-laden corpses...

    Re: having a "crisis of faith"

    Very true. They've done it time and time again, and what makes it worse, is that Microsoft is copying from them again with Vista (one of the many reasons why Vista really bites).

    You're still not...

    Awesome, Dave! Isn't it a great feeling to give Micro$oft the shaft by using and promoting Linux? ;)

    Ever since Micro$oft's Vista, Steve Ballmer's henchmen trying to sue Linux developers, and...
  13. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    I guess it depends upon what one defines as "mess around" with their PC. Would that mean getting into tweaking it, or using it as a PC to do something productive and/or creative?

    'Messing around'...
  14. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    Thanks for the clarification, Alberio. :) Yeah, the way I read your post probably didn't align with your intentions.



    I agree in that I also prefer Photoshop. I even hate the new CS versions (I...
  15. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    That's an old article, duplicated many places on various sites that was originally written as a joke. It even got slashdotted quite a while ago.
  16. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    Many Linux users don't dual boot for reasons apparently lost to you: they insist on using free, open source software and will not touch anything with licensing ties such as Microsoft products. It is...

    Nice to see Ubuntu replacing XP, TorqueyPete! :)



    Yeah, unfortunately the ATI drivers for Linux is not as good as NVIDIA. Bummer.
  18. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    You probably didn't loose any Compize settings or anything like that, but rather you most likely lost your restricted drivers for your video card. I assume you have an NVIDIA video card? If so,...

  21. Re: What is the lamest reason for giving up on Ubuntu/Linux you've ever heard?

    I had my supervisor and friend tell me recently when I suggested Ubuntu and explained it as a Linux distribution: "Linux? Isn't that for hackers? (...) it's not safe."

  23. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Yup, it's the updates to everything, Open Office, etc., etc. This is one of the main advantages to Ubuntu, in that everything (Open Office, GIMP, Firefox, etc.) is included with the installer, and...
