    Poll: Re: Linux Desktop Readiness Thread

    Oh yeah, I agree with that. Vista was kinda designed for new computers. It won't run very well on anything older than a few years. And manufacturers are not really interested in providing new drivers...

    +1. The truth is, the only way all your hardware could possibly work out of the box on Linux, is if you bought it specifically to be able to. Otherwise it's down to sheer luck, as opposed to Windows,...

    Poll: Re: The fate of optical drives

    iTunes sells non-DRM music, and has been doing so for quite a while, it just costs extra. You can buy anything from iTunes as DRM or as non-DRM. Amazon's non-DRM is still cheaper, though.

    The porn-industry is going blue-ray as well, which means HD-DVD will go the way of the betamax. And let's face it, as long as the porn industry keeps making movies on blue-ray, there will be optical...

    I found this one a while back: http://www.writerscafe.co.uk/

    It costs money though, and is not open source, but it has a lot of potential if you (unlike me) aren't to lazy to figure it out.
