    Re: Ubuntu versus Xubuntu

    I understand you can turn it off, but it shouldn't be there in the first place. As I said, I don't even want to deal with it. There are many other distros and DEs that don't do that kind of **** to...
  2. Re: Why have you chosen to use Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based distros?

    I was a fairly long time Debian user, and switched to Ubuntu in it's earlier days just to save time setting up my machines. As time went on it seemed that most applications were packaged for Ubuntu,...

    Re: Developing for Ubuntu.

    I do not agree with this approach at all. Diving into existing applications when you are just learning to develop can be very overwhelming and is not the best way to learn.

    Re: Favorite Torrent Client

    I am currently using deluge, but qBittorent is also really nice. I am not sure why Transmission is still the default in a lot of distros, it doesn't work nearly as well as either of these.

    Re: Ubuntu versus Xubuntu

    Re: Opinions on Ubuntu and it's Flavors

    I use Xubuntu. I migrated to Xfce after Gnome2 died and have been very happy with it. Xubuntu for me strikes that perfect balance between speed, simplicity, and usability. My desktop looks great, and...
  7. Re: Netflix on Ubuntu - Easy, but some problems

    For me I just found everything extremely show and mostly unusable. I have a fairly powerful machine, so I am not really sure what the issue is. This computer is still running 12.04, so maybe it would...
  8. Re: Why Ubuntu keeps pulling me back from other distros/ and 10 things I hate about i

    Some of those concerns for me have been solved by moving to Xubuntu. It is far more stable, has none of the Amazon crap. I also think that Xubuntu will also probably be sticking with Xorg until Mir...
  9. Re: Proposed: Chromium as Ubuntu's default browser

    I have been using Chromium for years, and find it to be a better user experience than Firefox. That being said, I don't really care what they have installed by default.

    Re: When did Xubuntu become so awesome?

    Have been using Xubuntu/Xfce as my default desktop for many years, and it only seems to get better and more polished. For me, it strikes the perfect balance between a lightweight DE and a feature...

    Re: If Ubuntu disappeared

    I would probably go to Debian Testing or openSUSE if Ubuntu went away (or moved in an undesirable direction). I like Debian based distros, and have used Debian testing in the past, so initially that...

    Are you installing the Driver from Nvidia's website, or through Windows updates? Whatever you are trying, try the other.

    Re: Best distro for a netbook?

    Although I prefer Xubuntu, I am going to recommend Lubuntu, as it will be a little faster on that low-end hardware.

    CrunchBang would be even faster than Lubuntu, but is not as easy to use (but...

    Re: Lubuntu - The Best Linux Distro Ever!

    Lubuntu is a decent distro, but I still prefer Xubuntu. For me it has more features and is easier to configure, while still being really fast.

    Re: Xubuntu 13.04 review - Et tu, Brute?

    I am currently running Xubuntu 13.04 and it is a solid release. No huge improvements since the last release, just a bit more polished. After using Unity for a few months, I am glad to be back on Xfce.

    Re: what do you think of windows 7

    It is probably the best Windows release to date, and I don't hate using it when I have to. That being said, it still has most of the fundamental flaws Windows has had for over a decade. The main one...

    Re: win8? yes or no.

    If you need Windows, go with Win7 if you do not have a touchscreen, and Win8 if you do. Or use Win8 and use some of the patches out there to turn of the Metro stuff and make it work like Win7. Win8...
